Switzerland Hiking Tours


  • Cross Switzerland on the Via Alpina from the German to French-speaking regions
  • An amphitheatre of snow-capped peaks on the Walker’s Haute Route

  • The pearl of Switzerland, Lucerne, surrounded by its idyllic lakes and mountains
  • Ride the iconic Glacier Express, one of Europe's most mesmerising train journeys
  • The enticing region of the Bernese Oberland, from its alpine villages to mighty peaks

Switzerland's magnificent landscape demands immediate action – grab boots, poles and your backpack, so you are ready to discover it. Home to Europe’s greatest concentration of 4000m mountains, it is no surprise that it is said to have some of Europe’s finest hikes. Embark on a classic trail crossing the whole country on the Via Alpina or take on the challenge of the Walker’s Haute Route, glimpsing the iconic Matterhorn coming into view as you reach Zermatt at the end of your hike.

Switzerland is also the perfect place to embark on your first self-guided tour. It offers the best maintained and marked trails in all of the Alps and has enough variety to suit every taste and fitness level. Why not discover the picturesque chocolate-box villages of Mürren, Wengen and Grindelwald whilst walking through the Bernese Oberland or visit Lucerne as you hike around its lake and travel by boat, gondola, and train to reach your daily hikes.
