High Mountain trips – Switzerland

Switzerland is a mountaineers paradise, with countless mountains and epic scenery in abundance. High mountain ascents are the perfect way to discover the hidden delights on offer in this small but mighty country!

Switzerland is at the epicentre of the world famous Alps, with most of the Southern half of the country covered in snow-capped peaks, including the renowned and majestic Matterhorn (4478m).

This results in perfect high mountain ascents, as the wide array of location choices combined with the excellent conditions make for a veritable playground for mountaineers.

Apart from the mountains, the alpine scenery is as postcard-pretty as one can imagine, with tree-lined forests leading to idyllic and tranquil lakes, with small, quaint and rustique villages and towns welcoming all and sundry to indulge in the local customs and traditions.
