Basel and the Rhine River, Switzerland

A land of epic landscapes, Alpine pursuits and arguably the world’s best chocolate, Switzerland is also where you’ll find glittering lakes and rolling hills. The mountains call for action year-round – strap on snow boots, go white water rafting, grab your bike when the snow melts, or soar over it all in a hot-air balloon. Or why not take it down a notch and spend a leisurely afternoon tasting delicious confectionery at the world-famous Chocolate Factory? Switzerland changes with the seasons; in the summer, Lake Zurich and the River Limmat are filled with outdoor pop-up badi bars. When winter arrives, Christmas markets and cosy restaurants await. From Switzerland’s largest city of Zurich to the epic cuisine – think mouth-watering cheese fondue and steaming raclette served with hunks of fresh bread – there is so much to explore here…
