Switzerland’s summer lakes and mountains

Lucerne – Lugano – St Moritz – Zermatt

Uncover Switzerland’s
summer lakes and mountain resorts

Switzerland is famous for its chocolates, cheeses, and watches, but most importantly, its remarkably beautiful natural landscapes. The towering snow-capped Swiss Alps make up 60 percent of the country, providing visitors with limitless outdoor activities, while the numerous star-studded, glitzy resort towns allow them to experience the high life too.

A refreshing counterpoint to this winter wonderland is a slew of incredible lakeside towns and cities including Lucerne, with its quaint medieval old town, as well as the Mediterranean climes of Lake Lugano, located close to the Italian border. And the beautiful mountain resorts of St Moritz and Zermatt make for natural havens with views stretching for days. Whatever your preference, Switzerland is the ultimate destination for both outdoor adventure and relaxed self-indulgence.
