SAVE UP TO 40% ON SWITZERLAND TOURS AND RIVER CRUISES
A country of vast mountains, endless natural beauty, a commercial capital and beautiful cities, Switzerland ticks off pretty much all the boxes for most in any travel destination. The Alpine views as spectacular, as at times you feel that it is almost not real… but fear not it is all true, with skiing, hiking, mountain climbing for all to enjoy.
The capital Berne is filled with great sights, architecture, folk shows and great shopping; Zurich is leads in art, design and nightlife as well as finance. Geneva is the more modern and upscale, with numerous world organizations based here, it still has its charm and little cobbled streets. Lucerne on the other hand, is a true gem, with Mt. Pilatus in the background this walled in city and its wooden bridges set on the Vierwaldstattersee (lake of the 4 forest settlements).
If skiing and snowboarding is what you are looking for, resorts like Zermatt (home to the Matterhorn), St. Moritz and Verbier have everything you need, from learners to Olympic style challenges. When the summer rolls around, the mountains give way to some of the best hiking there is to be found in Europe, especially in the Bernese Oberland, where the Jungfrau, Eigr and Monch tower above the Lauterbrunnen valley, and little alpine home dot the mountains like little cuckoo clocks.
Don’t forget to try the quintessential Swiss cuisine, where Fondue is something to share with friends, a Rosti will warm you up and the temptations of some of the best chocolate in the world make Switzerland a place not to be on a diet.
