Mysterious moors rushing waterfalls cascading down the mountains jagged rock formations and lush Alpine meadows covered with flowers never fail to enchant the onlooker. Here you will find total relaxation leisure time to breathe deeply to marvel at the simple things in life which make Switzerland so wonderful.

In some parts of Switzerland people still live their lives in symbiosis with nature - a close interaction that continues to benefit both. For countless generations the farming population has lovingly tended and vitalized the charming Alpine landscape. Some of the farmers know everything about local mushrooms and are experts at their cultivation others seem to speak the language of marmots. It's truly fascinating to see how a mountain farmer leads his daily life.

We offer a choice of 12 walking centres and 5 hotel to hotel trek. Probably more that any other specialist walking holiday tour operator.


Enjoy more than one area - Multi centred

Clients often want to enjoy more than one area and find that travelling even a couple of hours on the train leads to a totally different walking experience. We are extremely happy to put these together for you. We will make all hotel reservations and provide the rail ticket between the centres free of charge if the total stay is over 11 nights. For holidays over 13 nights we upgrade all the rail travel to First Class free of charge. For example why not combine Zermatt with Davos having 7 nights in each resort in 4* hotels and journey between the two on the ‘Glacier Express’?

Getting there

Air

Flights from the U.K serve Zurich Geneva and Basle Switzerland’s three major international airports. The first two have an integrated railway station on the main inter city system and Basle and Bern have a bus service connecting the airport directly with the main line railway station. The journey time is under 2 hours from London and a little longer from other UK airports. Details of current services are shown in the Price and Information Supplement.

Rail

Rail is a good alternative way to travel to Switzerland and it is possible to reach most of our main centres in one day from London. Alternatively and more leisurely why not stop en route and enjoy the many benefits of land travel? We can arrange a stop wherever you wish but particularly recommend Strasbourg as it is such a delightful place to visit with its canals and old town so convenient to the station and a hotel we have selected.

Road

Drive yourself there for maximum flexibility. We can provide driving notes from your home town. Whilst it is possible to get to our main centres in one day we would certainly recommend a stop en route. We can provide a motorway toll sticker (Vignette) price £32.

Fly – Rail Luggage

Take advantage of the unique fly/rail baggage system which allows you to travel light between airport and your centre. When your cases arrive your hotelier will collect them for you. On your return deposit your luggage at the railway station (not available from all stations) and the next time you see it is at your UK airport carousel. £16** per back per direction.

Getting about

The Swiss transport system has a well earned reputation for being the best in the world. The trains are modern clean and run to schedule (late trains make the news in Switzerland!). We provide a personal timetable for all customers showing the relevant train times (including platforms) for transfers between airport/international rail gateway and the hotel for both arrivals and departures. We help to make the journey very much part of your holiday by providing helpful notes offering advice on changing trains and selecting the best seats to enjoy the stunning panoramic views. During your stay you will have the opportunity to experience travelling on the distinctive yellow post buses the lake steamers and many cable cars and funicular railways which will whisk you to high alpine meadows and mountain tops.

Swiss Card

A Swiss Card is included* in your holiday price if purchasing air or international rail travel through us. This can be bought separately, from us, by those making their own transport arrangements to Switzerland. The Swiss Card provides transfers between airport/international rail gateway and the hotel and enables you to enjoy most of your local travel at a 50% discount. There are a number of other travel cards listed below. If you wish to purchase separately £138** upgrade to first class £66**

* Not included for Hotel to Hotel Treks, Davos and Lower Engadine. For both Davos and Lower Engadine centred holidays we provide a rail ticket to/from Zurich airport as local transport is free.

Family Card

Free travel on most transport for all children under 16 years traveling with their parents; provided free of charge with any of the travel cards listed above.

When to go

We offer Switzerland year round. Winter walking is available during the snowy months from December to April. Spring, from May to June, is when Alpine flowers are at their most prolific and the weather is warm in the valleys but fresh on the high walks where there is usually some snow still lying. Summer, from July to September, has the hottest weather but you can go higher to lower the temperature. Only at the very highest points will snow be still encountered. Autumn, from October, is excellent for end of year, lower level walking, at a time when the higher walks may already have their winter snows arriving.

Lower Engadine

The Lower Engadine is one of the most popular destinations for the Swiss to take their holidays, which must say something when they have such a choice. It is surprisingly not so well known to walkers from overseas. This area is the heartland of Switzerland’s fourth official language – Romansch which will often be heard especially in the small villages. However Swiss German is spoken by everyone and English as in other areas of Switzerland is widely spoken. A different language brings different culture, architecture and culinary specials all unique to the Romansch speaking area. The River Inn flows through the valley on its way to the Danube, alternately flowing though deep gorges and wide open meadowland grazed by bell ringing cows. The area is also host to Switzerland’s only National Park.
