Switzerland is, of course, a seriously scenic country but it offers up far more than just a beautiful view. For nature lovers, there is a wealth of natural beauty to discover on a Switzerland summer holiday, from the picturesque hiking trails and mirror-like lakes to the looming mountains. The quaint town of Interlaken is a popular destination for summer holidaymakers and a great base for outdoorsy escapades. Visit the Jungfrau region and hike through lush forests and alpine meadows filled with wildflowers during the summertime blooming season or visit Lauterbrunnen Valley and explore 16th-century buildings carved into the mountainside.
For a hit of adventure, mountain bike through one of Switzerland's many national parks for a taste of the Swiss Alps or, if you're looking for something more sedate, cruise across Lake Geneva. Discover some of its many beautiful beaches or head to the traditional resort town of Montreux where you can enjoy the lake views while devouring a bubbling cheese fondue. Whether you're looking for a relaxing escape or an adventure that will get your heart pumping, Switzerland summer holidays have something to offer every outdoor enthusiast.
