Switzerland’s compact size makes it easy to explore its fascinating towns and cities, lush meadows, wooded valleys, rolling green hills, peaceful lakes and spectacular mountains and glaciers.

There is more to Switzerland than chocolate, watches and the Matterhorn. While majestic mountain landscapes and secluded valleys open up endless possibilities for hiking and biking trips, the scenic beauty of the country’s lakes can be enjoyed at leisure onboard a lake steamer. Even though hiking is a popular pastime among the locals, the Swiss countryside has many quiet trails and restful places that are a haven for travellers seeking peace and quiet. Visitors can also enjoy the rejuvenating benefits of a ‘wellness package’ offered by many of Switzerland's world-famous spas and health resorts.
