Hello, We have Swiss Travel Pass and I was planning to bring my father with us. Do you know if there is some walking involved? I am debating if I should bring his wheel chair if there is too much walking for train and boat pick up. He can walk up to 10 minutes. He has no issues with high altitude. Thanks a bunch!!
