An Unsurpassed Encounter with Swiss Nature
Switzerland is hardly an undiscovered destination. But there are more secluded sides of it that few slow down enough to see. Our itinerary is meticulously crafted for the wildest possible encounters with Swiss natural wonders while enjoying the comfort of luxury mountain inns.
- A Distinct Nature Focus
Our emphasis is Switzerland's natural beauty, from the Bernese Alps to remote mountain lakes, the country's only national park (which is surprisingly lightly visited), and lesser-known local conservation areas adjacent to globally famous resorts. While we include some special cultural highlights like Montreux's world-famous wine terraces, our aim is a total immersion in Switzerland's stunning natural landscapes, whether by cog rail, train, gondola or hiking trail.
- Travel with Just 13 Guests...and TWO Expedition Leaders
With a small group, we can explore Switzerland's more remote nature highlights and stay in intimate and historic inns off limits to big bus tours. With fewer people, you enjoy a peaceful, personalized experience. And with two guides, we can divide into even smaller groups for activities with varying levels of physical exertion—the choice is yours!
- Survey Alpine Views from Distinctive Boutique Lodges
Carefully chosen accommodations steeped in local character enhance your trip. In the pedestrian village of Murren, we access our guesthouse on the steep mountain slopes by gondola. And when we're in iconic alpine towns like St. Moritz and Zermatt, boutique lodges offer fabulous mountain views and close access to nature adventures.
- First-Class Rail Travel aboard the Glacier Express
Riding the Glacier Express on an all-day journey through the Swiss Alps is a bucket-list railway experience—and we do it in style, traveling first class on the scenic route from St. Moritz to Zermatt in rail cars with panoramic windows.
- Visit Globally Recognized Natural Treasures
Switzerland is a country that works hard to conserve its alpine beauty and natural resources. We include several of its proudest conservation achievements, from the 100+-year-old Swiss National Park to hiking in UNESCO World Heritage Sites like Lake Oeschinen and Jungfrau-Aletsch.
