One week from £895pp - based on 2 sharing, including flights and B&B accommodation at a featured hotel

What it feels like to be there...

Adelboden is nestled on a tranquil hillside under the grand peaks of the Swiss Alps. With pristine scenery and stunning views in every direction, you could enjoy just standing around and staring – but you’d miss out on lots of fun! Summer or winter, you could stay a whole month and only scratch the surface of the activities on offer. 

What to do there…

Adelboden is packed with activities and perfect for 7 to 10 days:
  • Major: Skiing/Snowboarding, Off-Piste, Tobogganing, Snow-shoeing, Spa/Massage, Hiking, Nature-walks, Cultural-visits, Mountain-biking, Downhill-scooters, Paragliding, Boat-trips.
  • Other: Swimming, Gym/Fitness, Bungee, Llama-treks, Games, Kid-friendly.

  • Travel: Adelboden and Interlaken are about 2-2.5h drive from Geneva, Zurich and Basel, 1h from Bern (train adds 1h or so).
  • Weather: warm/showery May-Oct, cool/snowy Nov-Apr.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

The slopes in these valleys have made the area famous for skiing, but don’t for a minute believe they go unused in summer. Downhill scooting is the new and accessible adventure activity that’s taking the area by storm. You leap on an elongated scooter with big fat tyres and plot your course down the mountains back to the gondola ski lifts. Lots of exhilaration and little effort, what more could you need?

One week from £1895pp - based on 2 sharing, including flights and B&B accommodation at a featured hotel

What it feels like to be there...

Beneath the mighty peak of the Matterhorn is the pretty, bustling town of Zermatt. The quiet buzz of electric cars is the only traffic noise, but the strains of jolly Alpine bands spill out from the shops on to the streets. Chocolate-brown houses, laden with flower boxes, contrast with the jagged, icy mountains on the close horizon. 

What to do there…

Zermatt is packed with activities and perfect for 7 days:
  • Major: Skiing/Snowboarding, Off-Piste, Sledging, Snow-shoeing, Ice-climbing, Ice-skating, Paragliding, Spa/Massage, Cultural-visits, Hiking, Mountain-biking, Fishing, Rock-climbing, Downhill-scooters.
  • Other: Gym/Fitness, Swimming, Yoga, Pilates, Cinema.

Where to stay…

High on a cliff-face above the centre of town sits gorgeous 5* The Omnia. Accessed through a tunnel and 45m lift through the rock, the drama of your entry is surpassed only by the amazing views from within. The epitome of designer chic, this hotel aims to magnify the splendour of nature and the elements, ensuring you an exciting stay.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Zermatt and Montana are about 3-3.5h drive from Geneva, Zurich and Basel or 2.5h from Bern (similar by train).
  • Weather: warm/showery May-Oct, cool/snowy Nov-Apr.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

The peaks around Zermatt have the altitude for year-round skiing, but in summer this area is a mountaineer’s paradise. Scaling the summit of the Matterhorn has been every climber’s dream since Edward Whymper first conquered it in 1865. Sadly, four of his party fell to their deaths on the descent, but the route is now established and readily achievable with the right guide, equipment and coaching.

What it feels like to be there...

Switzerland keeps you so well entertained that burning off those fondue and chocolate calories is a breeze. The rugged mountains issue a challenge, but the picturesque valleys say take your time – luckily, the locals love to help with both. Picture yourself with a mulled wine in front of a log fire after a fun-packed Alpine day. 

Some practical information worth knowing…

Zurich, Basel and Geneva are the busiest airports in Switzerland, and while mountain roads take time to navigate, the amazing scenery is a worthwhile reward. Dress warmly, with lots of layers and a good wind-proof on top. Getting local currency is easy, but remember you aren’t in the Eurozone, so plan how much you need.

What it feels like to be there...

For many people this region conjures up visions of spy dramas and narrow escapes. The Communist era in the East left behind lots of interesting sights and a few strange practices. But the region’s beautiful landscapes, grand castles and homely food are a recipe for pure enjoyment. Relax and be prepared for exciting surprises! 

Some practical information worth knowing…

This region is easily reached using connecting flights from all the European super-airports. Cheap flights are common even to smaller cities in tourist areas. The road network is generally good. In the former Communist states, some architecture, infrastructure and furnishing styles look functional or dated to a Western eye. The service style is also often perceived as abrupt because here it is good manners to be unobtrusive, not familiar or hands on. Visas can usually be obtained on arrival now, but queues can take time. Getting money from bank machines, airports and hotels is largely straightforward, especially in urban areas.
