Swiss Alps & Lakes
Whether you visit Switzerland in winter or summer, the captivating culture and stunning scenery can be seen whatever the season. The electric blue lakes in summer turn icy in winter and reflect the snow-capped peaks that surround them. The Swiss Alps are home to some of the most famous ski resorts and they are equally as charming when the snow melts. A magnet for skiers and hikers, these dramatic peaks - including the iconic Matterhorn - range from 3,000 to 15,000 feet and spread across three-fifths of the country. Glaciers, scenic valleys and gorgeous alpine lakes add to the region's visual appeal. Glacier Express train travels the 7.5-hour route through the Swiss Alps from Zermatt to St. Moritz, passing through fairy-tale villages and over 291 bridges along the way.
