Known and loved for its dramatic mountain vistas and picturesque landscapes, Switzerland is one of Europe's most dazzling jewels. Unlike other holiday destinations, Switzerland is completely landlocked but what it lacks in coastal resorts it more than makes up for with its culture filled cities, shimmering alpine lakes, stunning mountains, and outdoor pursuits. Make the most of your hire car and drive through high mountain passes, Alpine meadows, and along the shores of Lakes Lucerne and Geneva.

Visit Berne, the capital of the country. With a stunning old town which features on the UNESCO World Heritage Site, paired with excellent restaurants and museums and various other attractions, you can easily spend a few days here. With mountains at every turn, there is of course fantastic skiing to enjoy during your time here too. Visit the popular resorts of Zermatt, Klosters, Verbier or Wengen and spend some time on the excellent powder whilst taking in the wonderful panoramas.
