Tour Map Scenic Switzerland 2022


Day 1 & Day 2: Lucerne

We start our tour at lake Lucerne and on the first evening we will have a group dinner so everyone can get to know each other. On the second day you have plenty of time to visit the old town of Lucerne or go on a boat trip on the beautiful lake. You can also enjoy the views from several of the mountain tops around the lake, which are easy to be conquered with trains or cable cars.

Day 3: Lucerne – Bern

Our destination today is the capital of Switzerland, Bern. In the early afternoon, we will spend some time together and make our own cream cheese at an Emmental cheese factory. But there is plenty of time before and after to visit castles, monasteries or a tropical house with plants and animals of this climate. If this is not what you are looking for, perhaps a famous chocolate shop would be for you.

Day 4: Bern

The old town of Bern is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The medieval air of this city with its fountains, sandstone facades, narrow streets and historic towers is unique, and thanks to its 6 kilometres of arcades it is also a great place for shopping. With a multitude of museums, Bern offers a very varied range of exhibitions and not to miss the bear park. If all this is too much culture, you can go for a swim directly from the campsite in the river Aare. It is the ultimate bathing experience; you drift along in the clean Aare while enjoying a view of the city.

Day 5: Bern – Lauterbrunnen Valley

Back on the road, we will head towards the Lauterbrunnen valley. On route you will drive along the beautiful lake Thunersee to Interlaken. On route we recommend a stop at the and should stop at Thun castle, a picturesque 12th-century building. If you enjoyed the drive along the lake, you could add a circle around the Brienzersee, another scenic drive, before going south into the Lauterbrunnen vally.

Day 6: Lauterbrunnen Valley

From our campsite you can see some of the 72 waterfalls gushing down into the Lauterbrunnen Valley from the vertical cliff faces, some of which are as high as 400m. The roar and rush of these unique natural spectacles accompanies you if you go for a hike. Where there is a valley there is also mountains. You can take the cableway from Stechelberg to the peak of the Schilthorn at 2,971 m, famous for being the setting where the 007 classic, ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ was filmed. You could also go up to the Top of Europe: the Jungfraujoch. The Jungfrau railway will take you to Europe’s highest-altitude railway station at 3,454 m.

Day 7: Lauterbrunnen Valley – Gruyère Region

Today we have a short drive to our next campsite in the Regional Park Gruyère. You can stop at the Spiez castle or visit the regional museum in Saanen to learn about life in the countryside.

Day 8: Gruyère Region – Lake Neuchâtel

On our way north to our campsite at lake Neuchâtel you first have to make a culinary decision: stopping at the Maison du Gruyère cheese factory or rather at Maison Cailler, the famous chocolate factory. Of course, there is also cities like Fribourg, castles and even Roman remains inviting for a stop.

Day 9: Lake Neuchâtel – Morges

From Neuchâtel, either take the route along the lake, or go up to La Chaux-de-Fonds, the world capital of the watch-making industry with its renown international watch museum dedicated to the history of time measurement. The museum houses over 4,500 exhibits, including 2,700 watches and 700 wall clocks. Nature lovers would stop at the “Creux du Van”, a massive natural rock arena, or go visit the caves of the region.

Day 10: Morges

Morges is the perfect place to relax. Take a walk along the promenade on the lake shore of Morges stretching from the castle close to our campsite all the way to the Vertou Park offering fantastic views of the lake and Savoy Alps.

Day 11: Morges – Geneva

The short drive to Geneva along the lake will take us through “La Côte” region, the hilly landscape between the Jura and lake is one of the biggest wine-growing areas in Switzerland. Particularly between Aubonne and Rolle there are great many typical wine-grower villages, such as Féchy. In the small town of Nyon you will find many excavations and sights from the times of the Celtic Helvetians and the Romans, and from the Middle Ages.

Day 12: Geneva

Geneva is Switzerland’s most international city, as it is where the European seat of the UNO is based, as well as the International Red Cross has its global headquarters here. The city invites you for a walk along the lake, a ride on a boat, or just a café on a terrace in the Old Town.

Day 13: Geneva – Montreux

Today we will drive along the Swiss side of the lake. We recommend a stop in the picturesque city of Lausanne, home of the International Olympic Committee since 1914. Go for a walk in the attractive old town, where you will find small alleyways with cafes and boutiques. Continuing our drive, you will pass the Lavaux Vineyard Terraces the largest contiguous vineyard region in Switzerland, and its daringly constructed hillside terraces have been protected by UNESCO since 2007.

Day 14: Montreux

Today we all go on a boat tour on Lake Geneva with a three hour stop in Montreux, where Freddie Mercury settled and recorded his last album with Queen “Made in Heaven”. Walk along the promenade to Chillon Castle the most visited historic building in Switzerland.

Day 15: Departure and end of tour
