Treat your senses to extraordinary experiences on this thrilling journey through Switzerland! From staggering mountain scenery to turquoise lakes and the breathtaking Bernese Alps, we’ll discover the wonders of this inspiring land.  Beginning in picturesque Interlaken, we’ll visit Bern, featuring bubbling fountains and Switzerland’s tallest cathedral; Brienz, famed for its traditional wood carvings; and Kandersteg, a paradise for nature lovers.

Ride a cogwheel train up the Brienzer Rothorn for unrivaled mountain vistas, and witness tumbling waterfalls in the Lauterbrunnen Valley. Journey to Vevey, a charming village tucked along the shores of Lake Geneva. During day excursions, we’ll sample Swiss chocolates, cheeses and crisp wines, visit lakeside Montreux, explore a medieval castle and enjoy a Lake Geneva cruise.

Plus, indulge in delicious cuisine while a folkloric group provides entertainment! This nine-night active adventure features first-class hotels, plus an extensive meal plan including wine with dinner.
