A country of contrasts
Switzerland is a country of contrasts, not only in its rich and varied geography, but in its cultural diversity and four official languages. Its stunning landscape includes dramatic snow-dusted peaks, tranquil shimmering lakes, and charming, picturesque towns and villages. Unique and admired the world over is its fantastic transport system, encouraging visitors to explore the most beautiful corners of this country in their own time, by boat, bus, train and mountain railway, all without a hitch. We have a wide range of destinations for you to choose from on Switzerland holidays, plus an enthralling selection of scenic tours, by rail and/or lake steamer, some for the more independent traveller, and one escorted by an experienced Inghams guide. We also offer the chance to travel by rail all the way from the UK to our hotels in Switzerland. Highlights of holidays in Switzerland include trips to see the magnificent Matterhorn and resorts such as Zermatt, Grindelwald, Davos, Montreux and Kandersteg.
