Design your Swiss Adventure

An ideal all-year round destination, Switzerland has an impressive and amazingly wide variety of outdoor activities on offer to suit all budgets and every level of fitness.

From leisurely walks and hikes that would expose you to some of the world's most spectacular and untouched sceneries to high-end extreme sports that will have your adrenalin pumping for more, Switzerland is where your adventurous streak will be in for a treat of a lifetime!

While Switzerland prides itself on its breathtaking sceneries, its cities and towns should not be overlooked. Every city has something unique to offer. For example, the historical sides of Basel and Luzern contrast the festivals, food and wine of the Lake Geneva Region, while the unbeatable views from Mount Pilatus, Titlis and Jungfrau compliment the adventure capital of Interlaken. It's an incredible balance travellers love and appreciate.

Whether travelling with a group or independently, getting around Switzerland is best done on the highly efficient Swiss Pass. With access to all trains, buses and boats as well as entry to more than 470 museums across the country, Swiss Pass holders are also entitled to 50% off mountain rails.

Another way of exploring this compact country is via self-drive tours, which is very easy to do with one of the many car hire companies available.

Getting there

Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) is Switzerland's national airline, serving 84 destinations in 40 countries from Zurich, Basel and Geneva and carrying some 16 million passengers a year with its 90-aircraft fleet. The company's Swiss WorldCargo division provides a comprehensive range of airport-to-airport airfreight services for high-value and care-intensive consignments to around 120 destinations in over 80 countries.

As the airline of Switzerland, SWISS embodies the country's traditional values, and is committed to delivering the highest product and service quality. Acting responsibly toward the environment and a commitment to sustainable action for future generations is part of the company's corporate culture.

SWISS in Australia offers convenient connections and competitive airfares via Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Beijing and Shanghai to Switzerland and on to other European centres. SWISS is part of the Lufthansa Group, and is also a member of Star Alliance, the world's biggest airline network.
