Let’s not mince words: If you like being in the mountains, you need to go to Switzerland. A Swiss Alps vacation is on every mountain lover’s bucket list, and we’ve crafted the perfect Swiss experience for you. You’ll experience the glorious heart of the Alps, exploring alpine meadows, gliding across impossibly blue mountain lakes, walking on well-trodden paths through the foothills — and of course, getting up high into some of Europe’s best-known peaks. Mountaineering skills are not necessary, as you’ll be transported to the top via chairlift, cable car and even the angled railway known as a funicular. You’ll get a birds-eye view of incredible waterfalls and take a quick jaunt on the surface of a glacier. You’ll wander through mountain villages and explore lofty castles.
Being in the mountains, you’ll no doubt work up an appetite, and your new Swiss friends will be only too happy to feed you. From a hearty trailside lunch cooked over an open fire to visiting a local cheese producer’s farm and sampling his wares, you’ll enjoy the best of Swiss cuisine. You’ll even dine at a revolving mountaintop restaurant – if you feel like you’re in a James Bond movie, it’s because the restaurant served as the villain’s lair in one of the classic films! And after each exciting day, you’ll relax in luxury at Switzerland’s finest chalets, enjoying a well-deserved glass of wine, perhaps on the outdoor deck as you unwind in the fresh mountain air.
