Your luxury Switzerland vacation first begins in Geneva with a private tour of the Maison Vacheron Constantin. While here, learn about these limited-edition watches and timepieces before continuing onward to the Lavaux vineyards. Stop in these ancient terraced vineyards for an exclusive wine tasting en route to your luxury accommodations in Gstaad.
Of course, two nights in Gstaad offer a wealth of unforgettable activities. For example, a hot air balloon flight over the Alps, a private cheese making demonstration and tasting, a guided hike to Lake Lauenen, a horse and carriage ride, and a fun dinner at local fondue “atelier” are all possible during your stay.
Your luxury Switzerland vacation then takes flight with a transfer by private helicopter to Lake Lucerne. On the way, stop for a fun day in the Jungfrau region. Here you will have the chance to embark on a glacier trek and enjoy a picnic lunch on the glacier. While in Lake Lucerne, get ready for unrelenting pampering, Michelin starred dining, and private touring from your luxury accommodations at Park Hotel Vitznau. Explore the city of Lucerne with your private guide, and enjoy a delicious chocolate making workshop. Undoubtedly the highlight of your luxury Switzerland vacation in Lucerne is a journey via private cable car to a tiny farming community in the mountains.
Your private helicopter will then whisk you away to St. Moritz, an adventure paradise. As such, paragliding, e-biking in the Engadin Valley, water sports in the deep blue lakes, and glider flights are all possible.
Of course, a luxury Switzerland vacation would not be complete without a ride aboard the famous Glacier Express panoramic train. Then venture along the Albula mountain railway over the famous Landwasser viaduct and through the Rheinschlucht gorge, Switzerland’s Grand Canyon. Go up and over the Oberalp Pass, passing the source of the Rhine River, and down to Andermatt, an idyllic village that H.G. Wells referred to it as “The Modern Utopia”.
Finally, your luxury Switzerland vacation concludes with two nights in Zermatt. The cornerstone of your stay is an exciting hike along the Gorner Gorge Via Ferrata with your private mountain guide. Your reward is lunch at Zum See, one of the best mountain restaurants in the world, and a sunset ride aboard the Gornergrat cog railway. Indeed, it promises to be an unforgettable end to your luxury Switzerland vacation.
