Switzerland in the summer is just glorious. Pure blue skies, clean fresh air, green meadows, crystal clear mountain lakes – once experienced, you’ll keep coming back. Whether you are exploring the vineyards and chocolate factories around Lake Geneva, mountain carting or biking around Zermatt or sailing on the lake in Zurich, there is something for everyone in Switzerland in summer.
Understandably, most people associate holidays in Switzerland with skiing holidays. The idea conjours up images of chocolate-box wooden chalets and snow-covered trees. But Switzerland in the summer is just as beautiful.
The white slopes give way to lush green meadows dotted with wildflowers and the sky is just as blue. Lovely warm sunny days are perfect for getting out into the great outdoors.
Switzerland in summer is heaven for those that like being active. There are spectacular walks around sparkling lakes to discover, and some of the best mountain biking to be found anywhere.
