Switzerland Tourism

Switzerland is calling – and with it the fresh air, crystal blue mountain lakes and majestic mountains. It’s the perfect playground for hikers, cyclists and mountain lovers.

Snowy 4,000-metre peaks, lakes and rivers that are perfect for a swim and winding trails without end. Welcome to the outdoor paradise of Switzerland! Whether on foot or on a bike, in the mountains, on water or in the air, if you like leading an active life, you’re in for a treat in Switzerland. 

Get inspired by our main destinations for adventure and outdoor - Interlaken and the Jungfrau Region. They offer everything you could possibly wish to do when wanting to make the Swiss mountains your playground. Have a look and dive into your next adventure.

Paddle Against the Icy Cold

Kayaking in winter? Of course! The winter months actually offer some of the most breath-taking views of Lake Brienz. With the kayak, you truly have the lake all to yourself and are surrounded by snow-covered mountains which reflect beautifully on the mirror-like water.

Mindful Travel Session

The Mindful Travel session is a new and exciting addition to the Kendal line up this year. Join hosts of 'The First Mile' podcast Ash Bhardwaj and Pip Stewart as they explore how mindful travel has grown to become an entire state of mind for every element involved within travel and adventure.

What does it mean to have the confidence to slow down your travel?

How can travel really be defined?

What do we impact as we travel?

Do we think of the local communities whose homes we are in whilst we are travelling?

This session will feature speakers delighting us with their own stories of a journey close to their heart that defines mindful travel for them followed by conversations with Ash and Pip, which will no doubt lead to funny recalls, hindsight thoughts, hopes for the future and how will we all travel from now on?
