Mountains of Fun in Switzerland
A summer adventure in the Swiss mountains where the family excitement leaves enough room for leisure, sightseeing and the occasional romantic escape.
"Andrea did a wonderful job designing an itinerary to suit three generations of diverse interests, and was flexible and responsive to last minute changes and requests. He showed us many hidden treasures of this beautiful region that would have missed we're it not for him."
- Heather on her journey in Italy
A possible, beautiful itinerary for you
Love at First Mountain-Sight
Arrival in Zurich. Travelling by train in Switzerland is an experience in its own right. Jaw-dropping mountainscapes met you at every turn, and you traverse the mountains through tunnels and bridges that capture the imagination. The little ones are mesmerised by the view.
A Bespoke Adventure
When you arrive in Lucerne, you have a wide variety of choices. A romantic walk through the streets of the old city, a hike in woods and even a boat ride in the lake. To each their own! Next morning, you embark on a family adventure to Seelisberg that ends with a standup paddlingboarding lesson in Lake Lucerne. Read more
Under the North Face
You travel by train to Grindelwald, charming village that sits in the shadow of the fearsome Eiger North Face. The mountains are intimidating so you must explore the surroundings to make sense of them. A cable-car to First takes you to the heights of the valley. From there, you descend on a professional zipline. It is a thrill akin to that of flying, and let the mountains bear witness! You feel like a hardened adventurer. In the meantime the kids are begging for a second go. You drive a mountaincart or a scooter-bike ― your choice! ― back to resort.
The Fountain of Youth
If there is an iconic mountain that can beat the Eiger, it must be the Matterhorn. As you approach Zermatt, the pyramidal colossus dominates the horizon. The nature around Zermatt is charming and you take advantage of the outdoors. Next morning, you undertake a tour of the lakes around the mountains. It is a lovely hike that you can all enjoy together as a family. But the little ones always call for more adventure. The next day, you descend into a gorge. There is climbing and rappelling involved. By the end of the day you feel rejuvenated. Such is the power of nature.
