Switzerland holidays

Exceptional scenery, outdoor activity and chocolate box villages harmonise with snow-capped peaks, ice glaciers and cultural cities.

Switzerland is simply spellbinding, a world of aerial cableways, indigo blue lakes, mountain summits and healing thermal springs. Be adventurous with glacier hiking, windsurfing and Alpine golf and stroll through chic cities and medieval towns, tempted by Swiss chocolate, cheese and contemporary architecture.

  • Mind-blowing landscapes – from the majestic mountainscapes of The Matterhorn in Zermatt, to the verdant valleys of Graubünden. You’re never far from a lake or river in Switzerland, such as the glistening waters of Interlaken’s Lake Brienz
  • World-famous food and drink – indulge in creamy Swiss cheeses such as Emmental or Gouda, savour locally made chocolate, or sink your teeth into crunchy meringues before sipping a local beer or wine
  • Internationally renowned, fast and efficient transportation systems, including the popular Glacier Express with expansive viewing windows and luxury seating – making a fantastic way to combine two or more destinations during your stay
  • Summer activities – from trekking along mountain pathways and glaciers to zip-lining through dense forests, there’s more to Switzerland than winter snow, and with plenty of family-friendly activities – there’s plenty of choice for all
  • Charming medieval city centres – cobbled streets, 14th-Century bridges and quaint architecture make a great excuse for photo stops.

Kuoni Insider

Set off with a picnic lunch and your feet safely ensconced within boots as you follow the stony paths that wind up the side of the mountain.

Verdant vegetation and bright flowers sway in the gentle alpine breeze and the lowing of cows and their bells punctuates the serene silence. Stop off for lunch beside a beautiful lake, its mirror surface reflecting the sky and the mountain peaks around it as you revel in the picturesque perfection of your alpine setting.
