Hike through restorative Swiss nature in summer, enjoy a boat trip through picturesque landscape or cycle along spectacular routes. In autumn, a season bursting with colour, sample autumnal specialities, wander through golden forests and watch the cattle make their traditional descent from the high pastures.
