FAQs on Switzerland Tours

When is the best time to visit Switzerland?

The best time to visit Switzerland largely depends on your preferences and activities. If you want to explore the winter landscapes on cross-country skis, December to March is ideal. Spring and Autumn (April to May and September to October) offer pleasant weather for walking and there are also fewer crowds during these months. Summer (June to August) is also perfect for hiking and exploring the Swiss Alps and the alpine meadows are strewn in colourful wildflowers.

Where are the best places to visit in Switzerland?

Switzerland offers a wealth of stunning destinations that cater to nature, history and culture lovers. The Swiss Alps, with their majestic peaks, are perfect for snowshoeing and hiking and cycling, with the Tour du Mont providing wonderful trails framed by rugged peaks. Geneva and Lucerne showcase the vibrant Swiss culture, while pretty alpine villages give you a taste of the country’s traditions and heritage. Kandersteg lies at the heart of Bernese Oberland and is surrounded by endless country trails, which provide the perfect base for walking, cycling and cross-country skiing trips.

How long do I need for Switzerland trips?

The duration of your trip entirely depends on the places you wish to visit and the activities you want to engage in. Ideally, a week would be sufficient to explore the major attractions.
