Switzerland Hiking Tours

Browse through our selection of self guided hiking tours in Switzerland and start planning your adventure in one of the most beautiful countries in Europe.

If you love hiking, Switzerland is the perfect destination for you. Imagine trekking below picturesque snow-capped mountains, pristine lakes, the country’s lush green valleys, and crossing bridges high above gushing rivers. The opportunities for hiking in this small country in the Alps are limitless.

But it can also get overwhelming when trying to choose the best hike for yourself. When doing this research, it can get so confusing that you might be put off or just pick something randomly.

From our extensive experience in hiking, we chose the best two hiking tours in the country for you — the Walker’s Haute Route and the Via Alpina. You can hike them in complete versions which take a couple of weeks or choose a shorter section if you have limited time.
