So what's it like?
Switzerland has seemingly endless opportunities for exploration. So why not take the plunge into every aspect of its lifestyle. Traditions, food, languages, culture and even climates from across Europe meet in this small, diverse and unique country. Vast mountains, tranquil lakes and cities that bubble with heritage are yours to discover - all made easily accessible by a Swiss transport system that you could set your watch to.
You’ll feel like you have nothing but time on holiday in Switzerland. Its variety is best experienced up close, so take to the hills on foot, or especially by railway - the vintage cogwheel up Mount Pilatus is a real favourite.
Many Swiss lakeside towns have their own lidos, so take a dive into the depths and relax on the water. It’s a perfect lazy alternative to an environment where you can be hill-walking in the morning and year-round skiing on the Matterhorn glacier in the afternoon.
A trip wouldn’t be complete without sampling the traditional Swiss cuisine - at its cheesy best in the form of a fondue, raclette or tartiflette – a tasty treat in all our locations.
Our Swiss holidays give you the freedom to see what you want to see, when you want to see it - but if you need some tips, our overseas team will be happy to nudge you in the right direction. We've also got some fantastic Switzerland summer 2014 deals visit its dedicated page.

Swiss Resort Transfers
Transfers to your Swiss resort will be by train, although sometimes it can include a boat or bus journey too. If you haven't already experienced Swiss Rail then you are in for a treat. Not only are they as punctual as a Swiss watch, but you can sit back in comfort and enjoy the magnificent scenery. You can also upgrade to 1st class travel for extra comfort.
This is included in all of our holidays and gives you unlimited travel on both your arrival and departure transfer days. You can stop off and enjoy other sights on the way to your resort. It also includes a 50% discount on most of the Swiss transport network for the rest of your stay.
The Swiss Pass offers unlimited travel on all trains, buses and boats for the duration of the pass and includes your transfer to and from the airport plus 25-50% reduction on mountain-top trains and cable cars.
