Switzerland is one of the world’s major ski destinations, with thousands of visitors coming each year to enjoy the Alps, which cover 65% of the land. You don’t have to be on a skiing holiday to enjoy a day on the Alps, although our handpicked holidays include luxury chalet rentals in ski resorts. Top destinations include the Four Valleys and the Jungfrau Regions, which are each home to a number of popular resorts.
During summer, the Alpine regions are still well worth a visit. As the snow melts, these majestic mountains become a hiker’s paradise, not to mention an excellent location for pony-trekking, paragliding, canyoning and even canoeing.
A popular holiday destination is the central region, an area known as the Swiss Heartland, which incorporates the historic cities of Basel, Lucerne and Bern and also huge swathes of undeveloped countryside, including rolling hills and lakes.
This is the ideal place to discover Swiss culture, which is diverse. With four national languages (German, Italian French and Romansh) and land borders with five countries, there are influences from every corner. Despite this, there’s no watering down of culture; this is a country of rich and strong tradition. Switzerland is also famed for luxury chocolate, fine cheeses and of course, excellent timekeeping. Find out more about the country’s heritage at the Ballenberg’s Open-Air Exhibition of Swiss Life, the International Museum of Horology in La Chaux-de-Fonds and the Swiss National Museum in Zurich.
