Switzerland - Bernese Oberland & Lake Lucerne
The Wayfarers

Switzerland - Bernese Oberland & Lake Lucerne

For centuries, the Swiss have mastered these mountains, bringing cheeses, salt and spices to Roman Italy. Today, highly efficient cable cars, cog railways, and chairlifts bring walkers to trails high above the treeline where we walk through verdant meadows filled with wildflowers. On every side are the legendary mountains of The Bernese Alps, their white peaks brilliant in the clear air. Below, are mountain lakes, woodlands and pastures.

We ride a cog train to the base of the Eiger, visit a farmerâs chalet and see how LâEtivaz cheese is made, and walk with panoramic views of the Monch and Jungfrau.
