SWITZERLAND

Snow-capped Alpine peaks, lush meadows and cosmopolitan cities await you in Switzerland. The land of milk and honey offers a delectable menu of history, wildlife and cultural diversity. With four official languages this international hub is so much more than the mouthwatering chocolate and cheese it is famous for – though these should still be revered.

Ride the Matterhorn Railway to Zermatt, travel the route of the Glacier Express and take an explorative city tour of Bern with a Local Expert. And in Geneva the Jet d’Eau is a must-see, along with the iconic Chillon Castle that sits on Lake Geneva.

With Insight Vacations gain access to exclusive experiences: • Meet a Swiss ranger on your spectacular journey to the summit of Mount Stanserhorn • Explore the stunning lakeside town of Bellinzona with your Local Expert.
