Browsing the "Switzerland" Tag

Located in the heart of the Alpine mountain range, Switzerland is undoubtedly a mountainous land par excellence. The diversity of the landscapes is beyond comprehension and will forever mark the memory of the hiker in search of a change of scenery. Among the most famous destinations are the peaks of the Valais and its many lakes and waterfalls, the origin of the Rhone. Further north, the hiker can try the summits of the Jura, with in particular the Chasseron, the Dôle or the Creux du Van. Finally, further south, the Alps are once again found with the Graubünden Mountains, in particular the Swiss National Park, which shows a landscape immaculate with all human intervention. Climbing up the Rhine, you reach the border peaks of Austria and Liechtenstein with magnificent views of the Rhine Valley and the Appenzell peaks. In short, an unforgettable experience awaits the hiker!
