Adventurers Switzerland Luxury Private Tour

Local Time

Why You Should Go

Despite being the most expensive travel destination in the world, we consider Switzerland to be one of the most meticulously clean and punctual countries.

When one thinks of Switzerland, a few things should come to mind: intimidating mountain ranges, delicious chocolate, vast landscapes, punctual trains, wooden clocks, freshly made cheese and so much more. As a small country with varying cultures to discover (click here to read our Swiss Cultures blog!), there is no limit to the adventures that await you. In this itinerary, you will experience Switzerland with the perfect mix of all the must-see landscapes and sites, as well as the thrilling and action-packed activities that will leave you in awe. The country flawlessly gives its visitors the best of both worlds–luxury and adventure all wrapped up for you to discover with ease! This is attributed to Switzerland’s emphasis on an active lifestyle, clean air, and nature preservation all paired with the country’s abundance of five-star hotels and wellness facilities. It’s not every day one has the opportunity to ascend the Matterhorn for skiing/hiking or cycling the circumference of Lake Stellisee, only to be followed by a world-class massage and a Michelin-starred meal. Are you ready to see what Swiss adventure awaits you?!

Ideally located in the center of town, next to the Matterhorn Museum, the spectacular views (5,276 ft. in altitude) are reason alone to stay at the 5-star, 77-room Grand Hotel Zermatterhof. Conceived in 1879, the Zermatterhof has an old Swiss ambiance coupled with a high-touch, wellness aesthetic. The hotel’s Alpine Spa program offers a comprehensive menu of spa treatments, including a huge pool (with waterfall) and an ice grotto. Amenities include three high-quality restaurants and all the luxury amenities you’ve come to expect from a relatively small, luxury property. The horse and carriage ride from the train station is a fun, nice introduction to the town of Zermatt.

Opened in 1861, we feel a stay at the 5-star Beau-Rivage Palace is reason alone to stay in Lausanne! Made up of two buildings connected via La Rotonde, the hotel was renovated in 2012 by the renowned designer, Pierre-Yves Rochon. Situated on the shore of Lake Geneva and only 10 minutes from the city center, Beau-Rivage has a four-hectare garden – the perfect spot to relax after a long day of exploring the area. Each of the 168 rooms and suites offers sweeping views of the city, garden, or Lake Geneva. There are 10 different dining options including a sushi restaurant and an Italian one. Of special note is the Cinq Mondes, a 15,000 sq. foot spa featuring indoor and outdoor heated pools, a Jacuzzi, “tropical rain walk”, gym, salon, separate male and female hammams (Turkish-style baths), saunas, and two outdoor tennis courts. This is certainly one of the most impressive well-being centers in the south-west Switzerland area.
