Switzerland Experiences

  • Luxurious, spellbinding and majestic are just some of the words you can use to describe Switzerland. The landscapes are incredible, and you are never far from a sparkling lake, river, or mountain. Ski in the shadow of the Matterhorn in Zermatt, or take the ski marathon challenge at the world famous St Moritz resort.
  • Transportation is fast and efficient. The most popular form of public transportation is the Glacier Express. With large viewing windows and luxury seating, it is the perfect way to move between destinations.
  • Lake Geneva is Western Europe’s biggest lake, stretching right down to France. This beautiful glistening mirror of water is lined with small beaches, fairytale chateaux and luxurious houses.
  • Switzerland is probably most famous for its chocolate and creamy cheeses, such as Gouda and Emmental. If food is your thing then Geneva is the place to go, boasting nearly 40 Michelin-starred restaurants. The Old Town has an old school elegance where you can get a real feel for the local atmosphere.
  • If car-free villages, championship golf, horse drawn sleighs and fantastic winter sports sound like your thing, then the canton of Valais is the destination for you. The glaciers in this German-speaking region offer snow sports in the summer, Cans Montana’s championship golf is held here and amongst all that are the medieval village of Sion and chocolate box chalets of Saas-Fee.
  • Zermatt is car-free, so the best way to get around it by horse drawn sleighs or electric taxis. There are plenty of cafés, patisseries and shops filled with Swiss watches, luxury clothing and decant chocolate - perfect activities for après ski.
