Beckenried and Klewenalp

Just round the lakeshore from Kehrsiten, and accessible by bus from Stans or lake boats, is Beckenried, from where a gondola rises to Klewenalp (1593m; www.klewenalp.ch) and a host of more walking routes. This is touted strongly as mountain-bike territory, and you can rent from Merkur outlets in Beckenried, Dallenwil and Seelisberg (see below) – Fr.31 for a full day, or Fr.24 for a half-day (7am–noon, or noon–5pm). Two easy bike routes link Dallenwil and Beckenried (10km), and Emmetten and Seelisberg (7km), with harder ones climbing to Klewenalp and beyond to various mountain inns. One option is to rent from Beckenried, cycle to Seelisberg (about 12km) and then catch a boat from Treib, Seelisberg’s boat station, back to Beckenried. The same route on foot would take about four and a half hours.
