BASEL & LUCERNE: Quest for the Crossroads Join us on a journey through a junction where time and place and eternity somehow meet; a small, fierce, rugged place at the meridian of Europe. The Swiss regions of Basel and Lucerne link to one another, and to the world, like hubs to wheels of commerce, enterprise, democracy and freedom. Switzerland is the most mountainous country in Europe. So how did this daunting and deadly barrier become the handshake to the opposite seas of Europe, the great link for goods, ideas, medicines and people? Our quest is to find out by following the ancient trade routes from the Gotthard Pass, down into Central Switzerland, along Lake Lucerne and to the port city of Basel. GENEVA & THE MATTERHORN: Quest for the Water Castle Our voyage takes us up one of the world's great rivers-the Rhone-a waterway that spills from the roof of the European continent, bringing health, wealth, pleasure and inspiration. A vital source of life, it's a river that lights cities, powers the world's best rail systems, and slakes the thirst of millions. Our journey begins in multicultural Geneva, then follows the shores of Lake Geneva to Nyon, Lausanne, and Vevey. After a stop at Chateau Chillon, we climb through the great Rhone Valley high to the wellspring of the river in the Uri Alps. Destinations include the Valais, Lukerbad, Zermatt and the Matterhorn, Fiesch and the Aletsch Glacier.
