Hiking holiday in Switzerland

8 Days - 7 Nights

Hiking in a region where fresh mountain air, clear blue lakes and beautifully laid trails are never far away? Switzerland is the answer! Be enchanted in every season by varied landscapes that you can easily reach on foot, by train or by car. More than 65,000 kilometers of marked hiking trails could take you around the world one and a half times! This means endless choice of hikes in the Alps, National Parks or along the highest peaks easily reached by cable elevators.

Day 1: Bear Sanctuary

You will arrive in Arosa and discover our beautiful four-star lakeside hotel. A visit to the bear sanctuary is a fun activity that will teach you all about bears living in the wild. Ideal to still stretch your legs upon arrival and get out into nature.

Day 2: Arosa

Cable cars take you to mountain peaks where you'll be treated to breathtaking views. History lovers can visit a small, local, historical museum. During the summer months, you can take a refreshing dip in Lake Arosa or participate in various water sports.

Day 3: Chur

By train you will reach Chur, Switzerland's oldest city, where a guide will be waiting for you at the train station. Explore the historic center and discover the traces of the Celts and Romans, among others. Chur breathes more than 5,000 years of history and is the gateway to the Alps and other regions of Switzerland. After wandering through the narrow streets, get lost and sample the local cuisine or enjoy a drink in one of the cozy bars.

Day 4: Rhine Gorge

Today you will explore the Rhine Gorge. The challenging hiking trails in the "Grand Canyon" of Europe provide spectacular views along rich fauna and flora. Those who like to explore the Rhine Gorge from the water can also opt for an adventurous kayaking trip.

Day 5: Sankt Moritz

You move to exclusive Sankt Moritz where you check into a luxurious five-star hotel with wonderful wellness facilities. The Muottas Muragl Bahn will take you up to the mountain peak, from where you will take a beautiful hike back down. Experienced hikers with good fitness can choose to complete this 10-kilometer trek uphill as well.

Day 6: Swiss National Park

The Swiss National Park is the oldest park in the Alps. There are several hiking trails for the whole family where you can spot ibex, bearded vultures and golden eagles, among others. Visit the museum first so you can find out what this impressive park means to the animals, nature, Swiss and international visitors.

Day 7: Sankt Moritz

The past few days have caused quite a bit of extra mileage on the counter already. To give your body some rest, make use of the hotel's 1,000-square-meter wellness and opt for professional body treatments. Other nearby options include golf, tennis, wind or kite surfing and sailing.
