Voyages Jules Verne

Enjoy Switzerland

Surrounded by four countries, Switzerland has been heavily influenced by its neighbouring nations while retaining its independence and identity.

Of course Switzerland conjures up images of traditional chalets, cable cars and cuckoo clocks but don’t let the clichés put you off – the reality and views are worth them. Mother Nature and the man-made world exist in perfect harmony in Switzerland. The iconic landscape of waterfalls and lakes set amid green pastures are studded with sophisticated cities that attract the rich and famous and general visitors alike. The real star of the show is the land itself – epic peaks and open spaces, a million years in the making.

Although you might not be interested in intrepid trails up the north face of the Matterhorn, you’ll still want to experience the highest mountains in Europe in all their glory. A rail tour will take you into an alpine paradise via 291 bridges, 91 tunnels and countless peaks, passes and glaciers, giving you uninterrupted, panoramic views of the awe-inspiring Alps and access to the most picturesque and popular regions of Switzerland with stays in historic and classic hotels.
