Destination Inspiration: Switzerland

by Sara Keomanivong Mooney, Senior Account Director Carrousel Travel

Often overlooked, Switzerland is a treasure trove of fantastic experiences. I personally discovered this on a trip last year and I'm headed back again this summer, and I can't wait. For an ideal trip to Switzerland I would include the storybook city of Lucerne, with its covered bridges and turreted buildings; the resort town of Interlaken, with its stunning vistas of the Alps; the charming village of Zermatt, with the famous Matterhorn; and the French-speaking city of Lausanne, set on the shores of Lake Geneva with the terraced vineyards of the Lavaux region nearby. Check out this video I shot for Swiss Tourism during one of my recent visits.

The following is a sample itinerary for a group program in Switzerland:

day 1

Arrive in Interlaken, Switzerland. After checking into your hotel, enjoy a guided walking tour of the city for an up-close and personal discovery of its natural beauty, extensive history and friendly locals. Later, gather for a "Welcome to Switzerland" reception and dinner.
