The Alps are a dominant feature of Switzerland’s geography, covering 65% of the country. Though the Western Alps comprise the largest area of the Swiss Alps, it is in the Eastern Alps that you will find the country’s most famous ski resorts: St Moritz and Davos. Having twice hosted the Winter Olympics, St Moritz is a hotspot for competitive snow sports. It’s also a favoured hangout for royals and celebrities, famous for its designer boutiques and super-luxury resorts. Davos boasts similar high-end credentials, and is well known as a hub for nightlife and some of the longest, most pulse-pounding slopes in the country. Head into the Western Alps and you can explore some of Switzerland’s more low-key ski resorts. A tranquil and traditional atmosphere has been preserved in charming Andermatt and scenic Grindelwald, which looks onto the slopes of the spectacular Eiger Mountain. Ski resorts aside, the Swiss Alps are packed with historic sites, natural wonders, and must-see scenery – from the iconic peak of the Matterhorn, to the Jungfraujoch Railway Station (the highest in Europe). In the spring and summer months, the mountainous lakeside town of Interlaken is a jaw-dropping spot for an activities holiday - whether you're after watersports or hiking opportunities. Further east, the Swiss National Park provides some excellent walking trails in astonishing alpine surroundings.
