The coastline is amazing for climbing, kayaking, dog sled and more. And between November and March is the right atmosphere to see the aurora borealis.
When in Switzerland, nature tourism is the main choice. The country has many waterfalls, forests, and lakes. You can also take a train to climb the Alps, visit medieval castles, and drink Swiss wine – and explore more mountainous landscapes at no additional cost.
