Switzerland is a truly beautiful country – dramatic mountains and glaciers, valleys and lakes, this is a walkers heaven.  Adventure is everywhere from rafting and canyoning to winter sports. In Spring and Summer the lush, alpine meadows are a riot of colourful flowers and there are walking and hiking trails everywhere you go.

Travel by rail here, the Swiss Rail system is scenic and literally runs like clockwork! There are pretty mountain villages and fascinating towns mixing old world charm and vibrant culture. Another attraction here is of course chocolate and cheese! Take the ‘Chocolate Train’ to Montreux and taste the gorgeous produce at the Cailler-Nestle chocolate factory. Also here is a trip to the Gruyere cheese factory.

Into the mountains and the Matterhorn Glacier summit at Zermatt – this is the highest cable car in Europe at 3880m and offers jaw dropping views of the peaks.  The glacier palace here has an ice slide and ice carvings. Nearby are the amazingly beautiful areas of Jungfrau, Wengen and Grindelwald – travel here on the Jungfraujoch train, running through the Eiger and the highest train station in Europe at 3454m.

Switzerland-Liz-and-boy

Interlaken is close to the mountains of the Bernese Oberland and surrounded by lakes and rivers. There are medieval towns and castles to explore and luxury and traditional hotels. Take a cruise on the lakes of Thun and Brienz. Nearby are a host of adventure activities including tandem paragliding, canyoning, mountain biking, rock and ice climbing and rafting.  At Schilthorn you will find the revolving restaurant at the 2960m summit of this mountain, built for the film ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ with views over the Lauterbrunnen Valley to the peaks and glaciers of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau.

Combine your holidays with neighbouring countries such as France, Italy or Austria, particularly in the winter when you can ski over some of the borders!

Engelberg was a really good place to be based with plenty of outdoor activities, our room was huge with gorgeous views. We did hiking, biking, kayaking, glacier trip and even cooking on a camp fire! Thanks again to Jules and Mags for arranging this - our holiday was a stress-free experience and I'm sure we'll be back!

The Journey of a Lifetime on the Venice Simplon Orient Express! The whole holiday was a great success. Thank you very much for all your planning, booking and checking the finer details. We have many happy memories that will last for a long time! The Goring Hotel in London, the Pullman/Orient Express trains and Hotel Cipriani in Venice were all brilliant. Staff looked after us extremely well and were very patient.

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
