In Switzerland, one should never be afraid to take on new challenges. Everywhere you turn you see towering mountains, glistening glaciers, green lakes, and breathtaking train rides, making this multilingual nation Europe's premier adventure destination. Nestled behind the majestic Matterhorn Mountain, which rises to a height of 4,478 meters, lies the quaint chalets of Zermatt ski resort in the south. Enjoy some off-piste tree runs or glide down the immaculate pistes; the snow conditions are almost always ideal.
In the meanwhile, odd sports like ice cricket, skijoring, and "White Turf" horse racing take place on the frozen surface of Lake St. Moritz, to the east. As summer arrives, glistening lakes and expansive, verdant forests replace the winter and ice. The finest ways to see it are from the 1,300-meter-high Harder Klum observation platform in Interlaken or by taking a thrilling tandem paragliding trip across the valley. Alternatively, board an antique riverboat to get dreamy views of the farmhouses, fishing villages, and fortifications perched on hillsides on each side of this main attraction.
The capital Bern, with its medieval old town, the Germanic Basel with its jaw-dropping architecture, the stylish Geneva with its taste for luxury, and the expansive Zürich with its artsy edge, riverfront pubs, and fondue restaurants are just a few of the fascinating towns that contrast with all this rural beauty. Switzerland has a wide variety of lodging alternatives, including a large number of hotels, as well as many lodges, chalets, and apartments with lake views that can be rented all around the nation.
