Hello Dharmesh! As for the Swiss Pass or Swiss Half Fare Card: a Swiss Half Fare Card
is cheaper in your case. If you order a free STS Family Card along with your Swiss Half Fare Cards, the children can travel along for free at all times (as long as they're accompanied by one of their parents). So you don't have to buy them additional (discounted) tickets on any of your trips.
Paragliding can best be done from Interlaken, as the slopes here are higher than the ones surrounding Lucerne. The websites of Paragliding Interlaken
and Outdoor Interlaken
will provide all information you need.
Which trips are for free and which are discounted, depends on the type of pass you'll be using. If you have a Swiss Half Fare Card
, nearly all train, bus and boat trips and many cable cars/mountain trains are discounted by 50%. On the Swiss Half Fare Card page
, you'll find a link to a map showing the exact area of validity (please refer to the header 'Swiss Half Fare Card Features').
Such a map can be found on the Swiss Pass page
as well. With a Swiss Pass, most train, bus and boat trips are for free. Mountain trains and cable cars are often discounted by 50%, and the trip to the Jungfraujoch is discounted by 25%.
I hope this answers your questions. Good luck preparing for your trip!
