Why Switzerland?

It’s no wonder Switzerland is consistently ranked as one of the happiest places on earth. With its breathtaking scenery, clean mountain air, high standard of living and ultra-low crime rate, Switzerland is a traveler’s dream. With nearly 12,500 miles of trails, Switzerland proudly hosts the greatest network of hiking trails to be found anywhere. Home to over 450 museums, centuries-old castles, cathedrals and churches, beautifully crafted stone bridges and the most pleasantly plump cows you’ll ever see, Switzerland has something for everyone!

Recent decades have witnessed the transformation of Switzerland from a simple land of cuckoo clocks and chocolate to a vacation destination for a broad spectrum of travelers ranging from sports enthusiasts, health nuts, hikers and mountain bikers to history buffs, food connoisseurs, and of course the thrill-seeking base jumpers who leap from the cliffs high above the Lauterbrunnen Valley all summer long (there’s a good chance you’ll see a few on a Switzerland Hiking Tours vacation).

For first-time visitors it doesn’t take long to realize why the Swiss are admired across the globe for their passion about quality and their attention to detail. For the seasoned pros who consistently visit Switzerland year after year, they just can’t get enough of the marvelous mix of cultures, cuisine, and people that make up one of the most beautiful, diverse countries on the planet. Come see for yourself. The photographs give a glimpse but it has to be seen to be believed. We’ll meet you in Zurich and take it from there!
