Bring intriguing coastal trails and history alive in South Hampshire
On our walking holidays in the Swiss Alps, roam through luscious flower filled meadows surrounding quintessential chocolate-box timber villages. Travel by cable car up mighty snow-dusted peaks marvelling at the vistas of coniferous forests, and arête ridges. Hike around azure mineral gorges to fresh spring pastures and cornflower blue lakes blossoming with pink and yellow orchids.
Look out for sure-footed mountain goats clambering across gnarly crags as we cross the Schanfigg Valley, taking in the magnificent alpine mountain views from the Langwiesser Aussicht. We’ll stop off at the colourful hamlets of Chüpfen and Dörfli before riding the Madrisa Gondola high above emerald valleys of vivid wildflowers, and ice-blue mirrored lakes.
Visit the enchanting village of Kanderstag, set at the foot of the beautiful Kander valley. Hear Swiss cowbells ring out in fresh alpine meadows before walking the Gemmi pass to reach heights of over 2,200m at the Daubensee.
Hikers looking for a challenge will relish the opportunity to take on our Tour Du Mont Blanc. Considered one of the world’s greatest walks, you can expect panoramic views across Chamonix Valley and Mirage Glacier as we circumnavigate the world’s tallest mountain.
Or, experience Switzerland in the thick of winter on our holiday package to the quaint alpine village of Kandersteg, deep in the Bernese Oberland. With charming log chalets dating back to the middle ages, this peaceful and unspoilt resort offers breathtaking views overlooking the glistening Oeschinen glacier lake.

Indulge in Switzerland's world-famous cuisine as we stop by artisanal chocolate shops and remote, yodelling cheesemongers high up in the Alps. Sample fresh local cheeses the traditional way over a candle-lit fondue or wood-fired melted raclette.
