More Info

Landlocked at the heart of Europe, Switzerland is a relatively small country, located between the stunning Alps in the south and the Jura mountains in the north. It is divided in 26 different cantons, with different customs, languages and traditions, resulting in a culturally diverse nation. Famous for its neutrality and political and economical stability, it is not a member of the European Union. The spectacular mountain scenery makes Switzerland a very popular holiday destination in the continent, with countless options for all tastes. The sunny Italian-speaking region of Ticino is a perfect destination for a relaxed summer vacation. Wine lovers should visit some of the country’s spectacular terraced vineyards.

Switzerland has a temperate climate. During winter, most of the country receives generous snowfalls. Summers can be quite humid and warm. Autumn is usually cool and dry, and spring is idyllic, full of flowers and with warm temperatures.

Getting there:

Conveniently located in the heart of Europe, getting to Switzerland is pretty easy. The main international airports are at Geneva, Zurich, Basel, Bern and Lugano. Trains arrive from all parts of Europe daily and often in hourly intervals. You could also get there by bus, although the most scenic way to arrive is by ferry, if you are coming from Italy, France or Germany.

Best time to visit:

If you are looking for snow, winter is the best time to come, although you can ski all year round in many resorts high in the Alps, like Zermatt. For hiking and other activities the best time is from April till September, when the weather is milder, although it may rain in the summer.

I highly recommend Explore-Share company and my guide Guy Robert May. I had a great time scrambling the Hornli Ridge with Guy-Robert which was very professional and friendly. The weather was not prominent for already settle climbing day, still Guy-Robert managed to squeeze me in his busy calendar and guides me to the top on the other day. (!) He easily shared his knowledge and experiences, gave me a few tips, and inspired to come back to Switzerland to tackle similar routes. Lupe thank YOU very much for all your help in finding perfect guide and again, Guy-Robert - many thanks for fantastic experience!
