For such a small country, Switzerland has so much to offer - from dramatic peaks and glacial valleys to warm friendly people and postcard-pretty mountain villages.
Our holidays in Switzerland offer you the lion's share of the country's classic alpine scenery, with many of the highest peaks, deepest valleys, most extensive glaciers, tallest waterfalls and largest mountain lakes. You'll hear church bells chime down the valleys and see fountains of flowers gracing village window boxes. The long summer days are perfect for high mountain walking, and late September onwards is typically a period of 'Indian summer' with fabulous red and golden hues and crystal clear air.
For cyclists, the beautifully flat and unspoiled Swiss Jura is perfect for families, first-timers and fair weather cyclists looking for a relaxing holiday in Switzerland. Whilst in the winter months the snowy peaks offer a dramatic backdrop to the wide, flat valleys, immaculately groomed trails and postcard pretty villages.
Here, in the 'jewel in the crown' of classic Switzerland, you'll find many of the highest peaks - often over 4000m, the deepest valleys, the tallest waterfalls, the oldest glaciers and the most beautiful mountain lakes in the country.

High level walking among Switzerland's highest peaks: the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. With spectacular scenery and fantastic wildlife opportunities, on the higher slopes, the lammergeier (bearded vulture) has been re-introduced. Also look out too for the alpine accentor and golden eagles cruising the thermals overhead.
