Walking holidays in Switzerland

against a backdrop of stunning peaks
Walking holidays in Switzerland are synonymous with flower-filled meadows, chalet-style hotels, gently clanging cowbells, panoramic mountain cafés and iconic peaks. In the true spirit of a Slow holiday, take your time to enjoy both the scenery and the excellent mountain cooking – you’re not in a group, and have no luggage to weigh you down (we take care of that), so you can linger when and where you want…

How are our walking holidays in Switzerland graded?

Walking holidays such as the Eiger to the Matterhorn, the Tour du Mont Blanc or the aptly named High Route are perfect for keen hikers, but you don’t have to be super fit to walk in the Swiss Alps – we also have walking holidays in Switzerland for people of average fitness. One explores Lake Lucerne, while another leads from Lake Maggiore to Lake Lugano. Alternatively, our walking holidays in the Bernese Oberland and Engadine Valley give you the choice of a challenging route or a slightly easier option on most days. Here’s how we grade our holidays:
  • Generally easy walking with few ascents / descents, but perhaps the occasional long day.
  • Easy-to-moderate walking with some ascents / descents, and occasional longer days.
  • Moderate walking on varied terrain, with some long days and regular ascents / descents.
  • Moderate-to-challenging walking on more rugged terrain with significant ascents / descents on most days. Compass skills may be required (check the individual holiday).
  • Challenging hikes, featuring long days with significant ascent / descent on challenging terrain. Compass skills may be required.
  • Choice of easier or harder routes, so that you can tailor most days to your requirements.
