Everything You Need To Know About Swiss Wines

Swiss Wines

During the Corona crises, I have been trying to think of new ways to attract customers. One of the ideas I have had is to add a wine experience to the Cheese and Chocolate Tour. Therefore, I have been learning about Swiss Wine, a very interesting subject and certainly an experience that guests will enjoy.

So the question is why is Swiss wine an enigma and seemingly not very popular outside of Switzerland? Many people do not even know that wine is produced here. However, I can confirm that many good quality wines are produced here in several regions and over the past 20 years Swiss winemaking has come a long way with a focus on quality as new grapes were introduced and older varieties resurrected. Swiss winemakers took off to the USA, Australia and New Zealand to learn winemaking techniques and bring their skills back to Switzerland to cater for a growing market of wine drinkers both here and from abroad.

So today there are approximately 15,000 hectares of vineyards in Switzerland across several Kantons in Switzerland. 58% is red wine and 42% white with Pinot Noir and Chaesselas the 2 most common varieties.

Switzerland’s Six Wine Regions

  • Valais (33% of total wine volume produced) In the heart of the Alps, with vineyards extending over 100km along the Rhône river.
  • Vaud (25%) Predominantly along the shores of Lake Geneva, with some vineyards at the southwestern end of Lake Neuchâtel.
  • German-speaking region (19%) Widely scattered across 17 German-speaking cantons from Basel and Aargau in the northwest via Zurich, Schaafhausen and Thurgau, to St Gallen and Graubünden in the east.
  • Geneva (10%) In the foothills of the sub-Alpine Jura mountains and both banks of the Rhône as it leaves the western end of Lake Geneva.
  • Ticino (7%) On the southern side of the Alps close to the Italian border, with abundant sunshine tempered by lake-effect rain from its proximity to Lakes Lugano and Maggiore.
  • Three Lakes (5%) Mostly on the slopes of the Jura along the northern banks of Lake Neuchâtel, with the balance on the equivalent shores of nearby Lakes Biel/Bienne and Murten/Morat.

I have picked out a couple of regions and winemakers that Typically Swiss Tours has met and will be taking customers to should they wish to visit a Swiss Vineyard to possibly complement a visit to a chocolate factory and/or a cheese dairy.

I have chosen the Kaiserspan vineyards at Hitzkirch, 25 mins outside of Luzern. Here, Andreas and Edith carefully turn Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling Silvaner into delicious red, white and rosé wines. Not far away on the banks of Lake Luzern with superb views Tony Ottiger produces the same varieties and Sauvignon Blanc and Rosenau as well. I envisage a day up Mt Pilatus, followed by a stroll round Luzern followed by a mid to late afternoon vineyard visit to be a lovely day.

Likewise, in the Lavaux region, Typically Swiss Tours has teamed up with La Crausaz vineyard which is situated on the south facing hills above Lake Leman, near Montreux. This perfectly located vineyard produces Chardonnay, Merlot and Pinot Noir amongst many selections. A trip here would complement a day in Montreux or even better round of a perfect culinary trip to Cailler chocolate and Gruyere cheese, located 30 mins away.

All three vineyards offer an introduction as to how the wines are produced, a small tour around the vineyard and a sampling of some selected wines and perhaps some lunch if ordered in advance. Naturally, there will be an opportunity to purchase a couple of bottles to sample later or take back as souvenirs. I have personally visited all 3 places and can confirm that this experience is not one to be missed. The views across the vineyards with lakes and mountains provide a perfect backdrop for a wonderful Swiss wine tasting experience. And why do this …….

Well, Swiss wines are becoming more popular year on year. The Swiss say themselves they cannot produce enough for their home market, never mind the foreign one and consequently only 1.5% of production is exported. A trip to a vineyard will certainly open up your eyes to the quality and increasing appeal of Swiss Wines.

One thing is for certain, a trip to a Swiss Vineyard will not disappoint and certainly add value to any culinary trip here in Switzerland.

What To Expect From Switzerland & The Swiss When You Arrive Here

The Matterhorn, Switzerland | Typically Swiss Tours

I have been here for 20 years so perhaps I am used to the living standards and
environment, let alone the Swiss people themselves. However, I have racked
my brains and after having talked to a few clients, I have picked out a few
common observations that your average visitor here would surely point out
when here. Therefore, if you do come as a tourist, and I strongly advise that
you do, this tips you will prepare you for your trip to Switzerland.

1. Cleanliness

So on arrival at either Zürich, Basel or Geneva airports, you will be struck just
how clean and even how sterile airports are compared to other airports in the
world. This sets the tone as Switzerland has to be one, if not the cleanest
countries in the world. On a stroll down a street in Switzerland, lots of people
have remarked to me about the absence of any litter and it is absolutely true. I
had one guest, a guy from the USA who set himself a challenge to find a piece
of litter during the 2 days he was with me and his colleagues. Let’s just say he
could not reach the challenge. So towns, mountains, lakes and basically
everywhere is clean. This cleanliness comes down to doing things right and
orderly and professional and organised and efficient and clean and ultimately
Swiss!!

2. Crossing The Road

Secondly there`s crossing the road. No jay walking here, people press the button and religiously wait for the green man. There could be no cars coming for miles on both sides but no one crosses and if somebody does jump the gun
and cross before the green man appears, it`s probably a foreigner!!

3. Prices

Third and you probably know this already, it`s very expensive. Wages are high
and I suppose this means, the cost of just about everything from Hotels, to
food and drinks to trips up mountains is high with very few exceptions. An
example would be a pizza margarita costing 17chf, a glass of wine 8chf and a
trip up a mountain 75chf which by anybody’s standards is expensive. Basically
if you here with family for a week and you are keen to do things, you must be
wealthy as a week could easily cost over 5000chf depending on your style of
stay etc. Luckily there are Airbnb`s here and you can buy transport passes
which will save you for trips etc and you can always do picnic lunches.

4. Languages

Forth is the language. Now if you do end up on the west side or the French side
or the South-East side, better known as the Italian part, you are fine if you
speak those languages and in general you are fine anyhow as the Swiss are a
very educated race and those working in Tourism will speak English and at
least one other language. However, if you end up in Central Switzerland where
I am in Luzern, do not expect the locals to speak German and you can practice
your A level German with them. No, they speak a strange dialect of German
called Swiss German which is simply nearly impossible to understand and I
would not even bother trying to! Best of speaking English.

5. Timing

Fifth is surprise, surprise is timing. Everything runs on time here. Trains and
meetings etc. If a train is due to leave or a meeting or concert is due to begin
at 2.45pm, then it will leave or start at 2.45 in 99% of cases. So never assume a train will be a minute late as you will simply miss it. Likewise, for dinner
reservations, always let the restaurant know you will be late and as a couple of
side notes, do not be too surprised to see a dog or dogs in the restaurant and
when it comes to tipping, remember that service is included in the bill so no
need to tip unless the service is really exceptional.

6. Low Crime Rates

Sixth, there is hardly any poverty and people are by and large well looked
after and civilised, educated and have jobs. In general unemployment is very
low, inflation also and the country is simply very well managed. Going further,
Switzerland is not in the EU and the borders are controlled so you will not see
many immigrants or refugees here. Entry and works permits for foreigners are
tightly controlled. Society is orderly and crime is very low too and the chances
of a tourist being a victim of crime are very low indeed.

7. High Fitness

Lastly you will be struck by how fit most people are. There are exceptions to
this for sure but if you do see overweight people, there is a good chance they
are tourists. The Swiss watch their diet and most do have some form of fitness
regime and participate in a number of sports and ski and hike on the Swiss
Alps.

So there`s a few fairly common idiosyncrasies you will definitely find here in
Switzerland. Nothing too bad, in fact most are pretty positive and make
Switzerland the fantastic country it is. To summarise you probably have the
impression Switzerland is high end and high cost. It is. In a way, you pay for
what you get here, hence the high standard and cost of living. However I would
strongly encourage anybody to visit Switzerland – just save up before you
come !

Reasons to visit Switzerland

Typically Swiss Tours

Switzerland is bursting at the seams with activities catered to young and old, with a varied and exciting range of things to do. There are many reasons to visit Switzerland.

Why choose Switzerland?

Zurich, Switzerland

Switzerland offers so much, including:

  • Delicious food
  • Breathtaking mountain scenery
  • Adrenaline-pumping activities 
  • A seamless way of getting around (thanks to the country’s superb organisation). 

After one visit, there is no doubt that you will want to return. It truly is one of the most exquisite countries in the world.

Visit Switzerland for the beauty

The Matterhorn in Switzerland

If you are looking for spectacular natural beauty, in particular picturesque lakes and mountains, look no further. People the world over flock here to submerge themselves in the glorious nature waiting around every corner. The Matterhorn, near Zermatt, is the most-photographed mountain in the world and is just one of the thousands of amazing places to visit.

Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere

Relaxing cup of tea

The fast pace and the hustle and bustle of stressful living are unknown in Switzerland. Even life in the bigger cities of Zurich, Basel and Geneva does not reach a pace faster than ‘chilled’, while Bern itself is known for its slower pace. Switzerland has a fantastic work-life balance. Of course, people do work hard, but at the same time, there are incredible amounts of leisure activities to pursue.

Everything runs like clockwork

Whether it’s the public transport and healthcare system, or merely keeping the place pristine, Switzerland is unique in the way the country operates; making living and visiting a joy. Swiss society is well organised and, for the traveller, everything from accommodation and transport to activities is here to enjoy.

When you visit Switzerland, you pay for what you get

Swiss Rolex watch

Switzerland is not a cheap country, that is a fact. Eating out and shopping are two of main expenses and, bearing in mind that Swiss salaries are 30-50% higher than other European countries; and the Swiss Franc is traditionally strong, you can see why it is pricey. However, you receive good value for most things, and the quality is there on goods and services. If you are prepared to look, you can definitely find some cheap deals.

It’s an international country

With over 20% of the population being nonnative, you are never too far from migrants who are either working temporarily or have settled here permanently. In most cities, several nationalities are making a real melting pot of cultures. This diverse mix compliments the Swiss and their traditional conservative, but friendly attitude.

Swiss Cheese and Chocolate – a trip to heaven

Swiss chocolate

If you love cheese, you have come to the right place. Four hundred different delicious types are produced here, and there are several tasty cheese dairies to visit, some of which are very interactive and interesting. From Gruyere to Emmental to Appenzell, Swiss cheese is literally around every corner.

The same goes for Swiss chocolate. Large and small companies produce it and, like cheese, there are plenty of chocolate factories that have opened their doors to the public. Part of the tour includes understanding the history of the establishment and how chocolate is made. Of course, there is the obligatory, and delicious, tasting session.

Skiing in Switzerland – Its snow snow snow

Swiss alps in winter

Switzerland is a mecca for skiing, and some of the world’s finest resorts and pistes are here. It’s no surprise that everything is organised and works well, not to mention the views are amazing. And it’s not just skiing or snowboarding, try sledging or snowshoe walking, or simply take a hike in the snow – it’s simply stunning, and with several world-famous resorts to choose from, such as Verbier, St Moritz and Zermatt, you will be spoilt for choice.

Switzerland weather is stunningly seasonal

You will normally experience the four-season climate, making a cacophony of super cool activities possible, from skiing in the winter to lake-swimming in summer. There can be quite a range of temperatures throughout the year, from minus four or five to thirty degrees celsius. Many micro-climates exist meaning that certain areas, such as Basel and Ticino, have very mild climates. 

Switzerland is Europ’s roof

Mountains railway Switzerland

With more than 50 peaks over 4,000m, a breathtaking view is never far away. Thousands go up on cable cars and mountain railways to experience these magnificent and exhilarating panoramas and vistas. Some of the mountains are very commercialised with modern facilities such as restaurants, shops and activities to cater for the hordes of people that flock there. And it’s an all-year-round adventure with skiing and sledging areas giving way in warmer months to hiking trails.

Visit Switzerland for more than just mountains

Switzerland boasts over 1,000 rivers and lakes, some of which are Europe’s biggest and most beautiful. Expect crystal clear fresh-water, with safe and supervised bathing areas, paired with beautiful scenery. 

Just a few examples of stunning Swiss lakes include:

  • Lungern
  • Geneva 
  • Luzern 
  • Walen 

Immerse yourself in culture

Switzerland has twenty-six Kantons (or states); each with its own culture and traditions dating back decades, if not centuries. There are festivals and events taking place all year, covering so many different pastimes and celebrations.

Fasnacht in Luzern, the Gay Parade in Zurich and the Alpzug, when the cows come down from the mountains in the Autumn, are just 3 of thousands of cultural events you can choose from.

Whether you are just passing through or are planning a more extended trip, we can help you make your visit memorable.

Top 10 Places to Visit in Switzerland

The Matterhorn in Switzerland

Switzerland is a real mix of nature, history, art, great outdoors and urban living. In fact, the only thing Switzerland does not have to offer is the sea; however, the thousands of lakes double up as perfect swimming places in the summer months. Basically, Switzerland has it all, and this list could easily top 100 but to simplify, here`s Typically Swiss Tours best 10 things to see and do in this wonderful, interesting and beautiful country.

Top 10 Best Places to Visit in Switzerland

 

1)  Matterhorn

 

If you are talking about Mountains, it’s probably Everest and then the Matterhorn that you think of first.  This swiss icon is the most photographed mountain in the world and attracts thousands of visitors who are pulled like magnets to its charismatic peak. 

Its uniqueness and beauty are plain to see, with a million stunning photographs taken at sunset, sunrise and in every season evidence of the power and attraction of this feat of nature. And with Zermatt, there is no finer place to ogle at the Matterhorn. For over 150 years, Europe`s jet-set has been coming to Zermatt to enjoy every single winter and summer sport, and it’s welcoming swiss hospitality.

 

2) Lakeside Luzern

 

Luzern is one of, if not the prettiest, town in Switzerland.  It’s charming, old, traditional, historic, vibrant and surrounded by god-given nature. You and several others could fall in love with Luzern for its sparkling lake vistas, alfresco café life, candy-coloured architecture and Victorian curiosities.  

The wooden bridge dating back to 1333, the City Walls dating back to the 14th Century and the Lion Monument are just 3 of several highlights in this gem of a town. 

Venturing further afield on a boat trip on the lake to a village and then up Mt Pilatus, Rigi or Stanserhorn will only add to your enjoyment and appreciation of one of Switzerland’s most beautiful regions.

 

3) Jungfrau Region

 

No trio of mountains is more famous than Switzerland`s big three – Eiger (Ogre), Mönch (Monk) and Jungfrau (Virgin) – peaks that soar to the sky above the gorgeous 19th century resorts of Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen.  

There’s a plethora of activities – canyoning, paragliding, white water rafting – for the adrenalin seeking junkies or simply take a hike on the myriad of hiking trails in the Alps. One thing is certain; you will never be too far from breath-taking views of the Pearly Whites and the best of the Swiss countryside.

 

4) Rheinfall roars

 

Try and catch Europe’s largest waterfall in the summer months to see the falls at its best. The increased snowmelt upstream of mountain water crashes over the rocks at a rate of knots, and the thunderous noise when you are up close and personal on one of several viewing platforms is deafening. To appreciate the full force and drama of this enormous cascade of water, take a boat across the river and the new panoramic lift down to the falls from the Schloss Laufen.

 

 5) Bern

 

The capital city of Switzerland does not fit the traditional image of a “capital city”. It’s fourth in population size and retains a feeling of quaintness; no wonder many do not realise its importance. However, it’s unexpectedness is precisely its charm and the architecture and “feel” of this place gives Bern a must-see quality.  

The famous bear enclosure housing the symbol of Bern – Three bears, the 15th Century Cathedral, the 16th Century Zytglogge and the Parliament buildings are just some of the attractions that await curious visitors.

 

6) Zurich

 

You can see why Zurich is one of the most desirable places to live in the world.  Living standards here are very high as are the prices. Over the years, there has been plenty of urban renewal as witnessed by the growth of Zurich West. 

Switzerland’s largest city by a mile is a centre for commerce, retail and entertainment. The financial centre is here, and there are 2,000 Google employees as well as all the high end, luxury shops you care to mention along Bahnhofstrasse. Day into night rolls into one with hundreds of bars, restaurants and clubs which will keep you entertained until the sun rises. Don’t forget the crazy Street Parade in August – a must see !!

7) Bernese Oberland

 

 

If you want to experience the most beautiful region in Switzerland, spend time in this region. You will not be disappointed and will definitely want to come back for more. 

Here you have it all, incredible gorges cutting through limestone rock like the Aare or Rosenlaui, enchanting and impressive waterfalls like at Giessbach or Staubbach. The enclosed waterfall in a mountain at Trummelbach is unique, as snowmelt water from the Alps crashes through several chutes. 

The picturesque Lakeside village of Brienz is a reminder of days of old when woodcarving was a major player. For a spot of souvenir shopping with the tourism masses, visit Interlaken, nestled between Lake Brienz and Lake Thun. Last head up the cable car at Isenfluh to Sulwald for majestic views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.  

 

8) Montreux and Lake Geneva

 

The vines in the Lavaux region are amazing, and a visit to a local vineyard is recommended, as sampling a glass of Pinot Noir with lunch overlooking Europe’s largest lake (Geneva) is an experience to savour. 

There are several interesting places along the lake to visit such as Switzerland’s most cosmopolitan city Geneva, Lausanne with it’s Olympic Museum, and Vevey with it’s Charlie Chaplain. However, my favourite is the host of the iconic Jazz festival every July – Montreux. Thousands flock here not only to listen to world-famous bands but to visit the 13th Century Chillon Castle, perfectly placed on the Lake.

 

9) Cheese and Chocolate etc

 

If you want the stereotypical Swiss experience, you can have it in excess.  Several cheese factories have interactive tour experiences where you can see the cheese being produced culminating in a tasting session. The three most famous are in Appenzell, Emmental and Gruyere but there are several smaller cheese places dotted around the country. 

Likewise, Aeschbach in Luzern, Lindt in Zurich (May 20) and Cailler in Broc have chocolate experiences along the same lines as cheese. Alternatively, if it’s a Swiss army penknife you are after, look no further than the Victorinox in Brunnen, where you can build your own. 

Lastly, as you can imagine, there are souvenir and watch shops everywhere selling typical swiss products which I am sure you will be tempted by.

10) Take a train journey in Switzerland

 

 

Put simply, Swiss trains are probably the best in the world, and the Swiss are very proud of their system. Over the years, Swiss railways have developed a number of famous train rides which take in the best of the Swiss countryside. 

These railways showcase alpine lakes, stunning alpine vistas and other mesmerising natural landscapes all from the comfort of a train, most with super-panoramic windows. 

Three of the best routes are the Glacier Express between St Moritz and Zermatt, the Bernina Express between St Moritz and Chur and the Golden Line between Luzern and Montreux. On all these iconic train journeys, passengers will be thrilled by just how close nature is, as the train travels across the beautiful swiss countryside through copious tunnels and bridges.

Book a tour to visit Switzerland in a way you will never forget.

Top 10 One Day Hiking Tours In Switzerland

Typically Swiss Tours

Whether you are interested in a one day hike, or a variety of hikes over a selection of days, we have collated some of the best hikes in Switzerland. 

1. Mount Rigi panorama trail – Central Switzerland

Known as the Queen of the Mountains, Mount Rigi is stunning in terms of facilities, walks and hikes, with 360-degree views of the stunning Swiss landscape. Our one-day hike will include a relaxing boat trip on Lake Luzern or a train ride which runs all year round. Out of the four big mountains in the Luzern area, walking trails are in abundance, with the panorama trail being our favourite.

2. Ebenalp Wildkirchli – Eastern Switzerland

Ebenalp Wildkirchli

For a truly unique sight into the Swiss Alps, head to Ebenalp in Eastern Switzerland. We will travel by cable car, reaching 1600m, before walking down to experience something truly exquisite. 

A restaurant was literally built into the side of a hill in 1621. Food and drink at the Berggasthaus Aescher were first served here in 1800 and the views of the Swiss Alps, particularly Mt Santis, are amazing. It’s an excellent option for visitors that don’t want to hike very far but would still like to have a Swiss alp experience. We can also take the hike without using the cable car if a longer hike is preferred.

3. Berner Oberland – Lake Oeschinen

Lake Oeschinen

If you are after a stunning, almost crystal blue lake, a classic alpine cable car ride and some of Switzerland’s finest walking trails, look no further than Lake Oeschinen. We will take a cable car up from Kandersteg, or a one-hour walk, to the top where a summer toboggan awaits us. We will follow the trail to the lake, past lush meadows with grazing cows. This is one of the best photo opportunities the Swiss Alps has to offer, with the snow-capped mountains providing a beautiful backdrop to the amazing blue lake.

4. Lauterbrunnen Valley – Jungfrau Region

Lauterbrunnen Valley

This valley, known as the Valley of 50 Waterfalls, is one of the most popular in Switzerland. The stunning surroundings are one of the many reasons we recommend tours here. Lauterbrunnen is a mecca for walkers. The high trails are only available in June onwards (when the snow has gone, and some of the lifts are open). 

Jungfrau and Schilthorn (2970m) are high peaks which are accessible by train and cable car. The views of the Alps are spectacular and well worth a visit. The mountain walk from Murren to Grütschalp and from Lauterbrunnen along the valley floor to Trummelbach Falls are well worth doing. As is the trek to the Staubbach Falls at 300m, the highest in Switzerland. All of these can be arranged through us.

5. Giessbach falls – Berner Oberland

Giessbach falls

Our personal favourite, for several reasons, is a trip to the incredible Giessbach Falls; a definite must-see. The falls, initially discovered by artists, have been attracting visitors for centuries; resulting in the construction of an enchanting hotel in 1873. Our one-day hike involves walking under the falls themselves before taking a seat on the terrace overlooking either the falls or Lake Brienz. Afterwards, we usually enjoy a free ride on the oldest funicular in Europe, down to the Lakeside to catch a boat to Brien where our driver guide picks us up and whisks us away to the next attraction.

6. Rigi Seebodenalp

Just a 20-minute drive from Luzern, we can travel up to Rigi Seebodenalp. The journey itself takes ten minutes, up a windy mountain road past Gesslerborg castle; which was built in the 10th century and is home to William Tell’s nemesis. We will journey past some farms selling local produce onto the bodenalpe and embark upon a twenty-minute hike along the ridge, taking in stunning views of Lake Luzern and Mount Pilatus. In the summer there will be cows grazing on the summer meadows.

7. Walensee – Eastern Switzerland

Walensee

The Walensee is one of the larger lakes in Switzerland with about two-thirds of its area in the Canton of St. Gallen and approximately one third in the Canton of Glarus. There are several enjoyable hikes around the lake offering impressive views along with a treasure hunt trail for kids, a choice of picnic areas and restaurants. While we are there, you won’t be able to stop marvelling at the crystal blue water and the stiff cliff edges – we still do!

8. Valle Verzasca

Valle Verzasca

Nestled in the hills of Ticino is the Verzasca river which flows into Lake Lugano and provides some lovely hiking areas. During our one-day hike, we will drive past several quaint villages until we reach the 22m high Verzasca Dam (which was featured in the film Goldeneye) and walk across it for an exhilarating experience. For the daredevils out there, we can even arrange for you to Bungee jump from the Dam! 

For everyone else, taking a dip in the crystal-clear water pools may be a better option (although it could be chilly). We won’t let you miss one of the highlights of the area – the bridge. “Ponte Romano” also called “Ponte Dei Salti” (jump bridge) crosses the Verzasca river in Lavertezzo, and is a typical medieval construction made of stone. Built in 1868, on a good day you can witness daring people taking the 15m leap into the blue waters below. 

9. Bürgenstock Cliff Walk and Hammetschwand Lift

Lake Luzern with mountains in the background

For stunning views of Lake Luzern and a clifftop walk involving a ride in Europe’s tallest free-standing lift, head to Burgenstock, located above Stans.  We can arrange for you to drive up the windy road or travel by boat from Luzern and the Bürgenstock funicular, up to the multi-million-pound resort.  

Our one-day hiking tour will take you along scenic paths with breathtaking views of Lake Luzern and the surrounding mountains. The cliff walk takes us to the 153m lift, which whisks us quickly to the top, allowing us to continue our walk through the forest, back to the resort.

10. Ballenberg Open-Air Museum – Berner Oberland

Berner Overland with historic property

Ballenberg is an old swiss village which is now an open-air museum accessible to the public. It’s a great walk with sights of all 100 original century-old buildings. It’s a wonderful way of seeing how the Swiss used to live and that the old way of life is still very much alive. Woodcutting, basketwork, spinning, weaving, lace-making and ironmonger’s tasks, through to cheese-making and baking are all on show so that visitors can witness how these old traditions have stood the test of time. If you fancy a snack or a typically swiss meal, do not worry, we can recommend plenty of local places to eat and relax.

If you would like us to take on the planning of your one-day hiking trip in Switzerland, we are more than happy to do so. You can either advise us on a particular hike you are interested in, or you can let us know what type of hike you would like, and we can make recommendations.
