World Class Walking and Postcard Scenery - What we love about Switzerland.

Switzerland is a land of contradictions. On one hand, the prevailing image is precise Swiss engineering, Swiss Army knives, cutting edge watches and some of the worlds most important pharmaceutical innovations. Yet, inside Switzerland, it’s cuckoo clocks, doilies and cute wooden villages all the way. Sitting comfortably beside some of the heavyweights of industry, the world’s biggest multinational countries and half of the world production of watches, is local Swiss living. Villages where life is simple, the scenery amazing and the chocolate divine.

And it’s the scenery that brings us to Switzerland year after year. Boasting some of the most spectacular mountain ranges, the deepest valleys and incredibly picturesque lakes; it all comes together like some perfectly designed magical wonderland. But there’s no design here, this is nature at her finest. So whether your skiing up to world-class resorts, walking in supreme hiking territory or simply enjoying a substantial beer with sausage and rosti, Switzerland has something for everyone.  While the prices can make anyone eyes water, you can rest assured you’re in for an experience that’s as good for the soul as it is for the senses.
