With three major languages (German, French, Italian) spoken in different parts of the country, Switzerland is a country of variety, with each area having its own unique flavour and culture. Mountains and lakes often come to mind when thinking about Switzerland, and hiking in the alps is one of the great areas for hiking in Europe. There are of course the picture postcard view of snowy peaks, but the small farming villages nestled in valleys, rich flora and fauna, lakes and varied microclimates all combine to make walking in Switzerland a superb experience.
On our walking holidays Switzerland, you might choose to tackle the Via Alpina, passing through 14 alpine passes and enjoying the staggering scenery and varying culture as you pass through 6 cantons. Alternatively, you could explore the Bernese Oberland and enjoy its charm, such as the car-free village of Wengen, and traverse the region by foot, cable car and train. Whichever one of our Switzerland hiking tours you choose, you’ll discover why hiking in Switzerland is considered such a great experience.
