Tour Swiss Weekend Getaway


ABSTRACT

This 2-day private tour takes you to some of the most scenic places in Switzerland. Travel at ease with hotel accommodations, transport and food all included. From snow-capped mountains to deep-blue lakes and lush forests you will travel through a wide variety of landscapes within a short timeframe. You will also visit the beautiful cities of Zürich and Luzern. Hiking is a must if you are in Switzerland. We selected a route at Aletsch Arena, one of the most breathtaking places in Switzerland where you will be surrounded by the highest peaks of the Alps. If you chose not to hike there will already be plenty of opportunities to take stunning pictures as we travel by car across a total of 2 mountain passes. Hard to decide which pass is more beautiful but one thing you will agree on after this trip: Switzerland is easily one of the most beautiful countries you have ever visited.
