More Info

Switzerland is a very unique country, with the different regions influenced by the respective neighboring countries, resulting in different languages being spoken and a different culture and vibe being felt depending where in the country you are.

The big cities of Zurich and Geneva are much more business-focused and urban than the rest of the country, with cities such as Bern, Basel and Lucerne being much prettier and close to nature.

Some of the backcountry skiing can be quite challenging, so being fit and in decent shape before arriving will maximise enjoyment of the activity.
