Skiers from all over the world share one thing in common: They all dream of visiting the Swiss Alps, or want to revisit it. After all, very few places can beat the kind and quality of snow (and related activities) here, coupled with its breath-taking views and majestic beauty.
But Switzerland offers more than just the perfect place for ski-lovers. Whether you are more of a hiker or perhaps a trekker, Alpenwild.com says that Switzerland has you covered. Here are just a few of your non-skiing adventure options in the majestic and picturesque Alps.
Explore Jungfrau-Aletsch Glacier
A great way to spend your summer is to explore the Jungfrau-Aletsch Glacier. It is one of the best non-snow-related activities you can do during your trip to the Alps.
The region, which the North Face of the Eiger overlooks, is one of Europe’s largest, giving you jaw-dropping views of mountain landscapes. The hike itself lets you take in scenic views of water formations, including lakes and ponds.
Hike to Zermatt
Zermatt is found at the Matterhorn’s base and lets you in on one of most prized havens for photographers. The spot itself allows you to capture spectacular photos as you hike, especially the reflections you will see at the Stellisee or the Stelli Lake.
Excellent views await you here, as the lake also gives you a perfect reflection of the Matterhorn’s chocolate-coloured side. You can take some of your best and fanciest photos when you schedule a sunrise photo shoot.
Fulfilling a Hiker’s Dream
These adventures are perfect for a day-hiker, so if this is more your kind of activity than snow sports, then you will have a memorable time in the Alps even without the snow. There is also no need for you to worry about getting lost: you have the option to go on mountain excursions with highly experienced and trained guides.
