Dreaming of fresh mountain air, endless green and serene lake views? This guide to some of the most incredible spots in Switzerland has your back.
In just under a week I managed to train across Switzerland, hike in the Swiss Alps (granted it was more of a hill), devour the most luxurious BBQ known to mankind, sail across Lake Lucerne, stay in a hotel room twice the size of my old Parisian apartment and dine at not one, but two Michelin-starred restaurants. To say that Switzerland lived up to it’s reputation of mountain air, breath-taking views and unparalleled luxury is putting it mildly.
The aim of the game was to skip the obvious summer plans (such as a coastal holiday along the Mediterranean) and take the road less travelled, seeking out the most uncommon experiences along the way. It was my first time in Switzerland and I was completely blown away by it’s natural beauty. To be honest it reminded me a lot of home (New Zealand) – just with European architecture. The entire country just felt so lush and spacious; for anyone craving fresh air, a little peace and quiet and spectacular scenery, this is the place to go.
