Discount and Travel day

Friends, I have a flexible 4 day global pass from Eurail which is valid for a month. I’m planning to use this pass days for my major travel between country borders. During my trip, I’m visiting Bernese Oberland region, where I’m planning to use discounted tickets (Mt Pilatus & Schilthorn), which is 25% on eurail. If I use this discount, will the day be counted as travel day ?

Also planning to go either of Lake Thun / Lake Brienz boating, which is free with Eurail. Will this be counted as a day. This is not a discount I believe.

Can I use pass for multiple travels on a day which are completely not part of a single (connected) journey (wandering around). Is it possible to do so with eurail pass counting as 1 day ?

Thank you in Advance.

When you only get a discount, then you don't need to use a travel day. Your discounted travel just needs to be during the validity period of the pass.

For any travel that is fully included, also with ferries like the ones on Lake Thun or Lake Brienz, you need to use a travel day.

You can board as many trains, ferries etc. on a travel day as you like.

Thank you Railmaster for the prompt response.
