Swiss Alps Winter
“Life is better on the Swiss Slopes” – LCT
If the Swiss Alps isn’t on your travel list, it should be! Contemporary Switzerland has much more to offer than four languages, chocolate, and cuckoo clocks. Between the great alpine outdoors and the avant-garde culture lies never-ending luxury, picturesque scenery, and more.
The mountains are what draw travelers in to the Swiss Alps, with bold landscapes of green pastures, rambling valleys, and white snowcapped mountains. Skiing is the adrenaline of choice in the Swiss Alps, and there is no shortage of prolific resorts. Nestled among the mountains and steeped in deep-rooted tradition, these luxurious resorts boast exceptional views, top of the line service, and the best of winter tourism in the world. However, if skiing isn’t your thing, there are numerous other outdoors options such as hiking and biking winding mountain trails, riding hot air balloons high into the sky, paragliding off the side of vistas, or even white-water rafting down one of the many rivers.
Marvel at what is understandably one of Switzerland’s most iconic landmarks – the towering Matterhorn, one of the highest summits in Europe. Nature lovers will also appreciate the jaw-dropping beauty of the Jungfrau Region containing the matchless and quaint city of Interlaken, as well as the stretching topaz waters of Lake Geneva. Head to the famous Grindelwald and visit the iconic Mount Eiger, Glacier Mönch, and Lake Brienz.
Round out your magical time in the Swiss Alps with a little bit of the city by visiting the Italian speaking city of Lugano to climb the Monte San Salvatore by cable car, and the capital city and medieval architecture of Bern. There is also the compact German speaking city of Lucerne for gastronomical genius, eye grabbing architecture, bustling markets, art galleries, and traditional folk flair. Hearty, warming foods like gooey fondue cheese, creamy chocolate, and a variety of beer will no doubt grace your plate.
