Hiking in the Swiss Alps allows you to uncover some of Europe's most dynamic Alpine scenery. Clear, well-marked trails criss-cross the mountains of Switzerland taking you through deep green Alpine meadows, past iridescent turquoise lakes, all the time surrounded by breathtaking alpine peaks. 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 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.
