Switzerland - Bernese Highlights

The extraordinary country of Switzerland will never be done justice using just words, it is one of those places which you have to see for yourself – her beauty is truly unimaginable. Home to awe-inspiring lakes, remote mountain villages and the high peaks of the Alps, this is probably the best country in the world for walking holidays!

The spectacular scenery and typically efficient Swiss transport infrastructure help walkers to reach new heights. Walking in Switzerland is a national sport and they have therefore developed a wonderful network of clearly marked paths that open many remote areas to more people, offering endless breath-taking scenery.
