The magnificent alpine country of Switzerland has much to offer. From stunning scenery spanning lush valleys and pristine lakes to inspiring vistas and the infamous peaks of Jungfraujoch, Switzerland paints a natural picture of luxury.
With some of the most exquisite views in Europe, it’s difficult to select just one prime season to venture to Switzerland. Some desire a cozy winter getaway while others crave adventurous hikes through the mountains. Whatever your dream Swiss vacation entails, The Nightfall Group is suited to help you prepare your travels at the very best time of year.
The Best Time for Outdoor Excursions in Switzerland
The prime summer months in Switzerland are July through September when the lakes’ temperatures have risen to a level of enjoyment and the landscape is bursting with vibrant colors. If you wish for a quieter time to soak in the summer delights, consider booking closer to the end of September when the high travel season subsides.
While in Switzerland, partake in a few summertime activities:
- Hiking: Switzerland is a global hiking location decorated with breathtaking trails through the Alpine countryside. From short day treks to long journeys, by late April, most trails should be clear of snow.
- Golfing: With a longstanding tradition of golfing, Crans-Montana is home to the 18-hole Severiano Ballesteros Course, the world’s most beautiful golf course. Combine a luxurious stay at a sophisticated resort in the Alps with a day on the course for the ultimate summertime bliss.
- Wine Tasting: Geneva has a rich history of winemaking with vineyards that crawl up the steep countryside of Lake Geneva, making one of the most spectacular landscapes in Switzerland. Stay in The Nightfall Group’s exquisite villa near the lake and take in all the wine country has to offer.
