The home of big mountains, traditional ski resorts – and the cheesiest fondus!

There’s so much more to Switzerland than clocks, chocolate box chalets and picturesque peaks.

Switzerland is home to some hidden gems, from quieter resorts to family and beginner friendly towns.

Switzerland is renowned for its grand ski resorts, chocolate box views and the huge variety in its regions and slopes. Resorts like Verbier, St Moritz, Wengen and Zermatt are world-renowned, boasting boutique hotels, Michelin starred restaurants and some of the most glam shopping you can find in a ski resort. But Switzerland is also home to some hidden gems, from quieter resorts that won’t cost the world, to family and beginner friendly ski towns. Being home to some of the biggest mountains of the Alps, it naturally offers some legendary off-piste and freeride terrain. Above all, Switzerland offers something the lower regions of the Alps can’t – and that’s snow security.
