Switzerland's Best Tracks & Trails

Explore Switzerland with UTracks

Switzerland is a natural paradise for active travellers. It is full of contrasts, from villages plucked from fairytales and modern cities to the magnificent Alps, which cover over half of the country. 

To truly appreciate Switzerland you need to head outdoors and walk or cycle through its breathtaking landscapes: verdant valleys, immense glaciers, meadows of wildflowers, glittering alpine lakes and snow-capped peaks.  

Capture the essence of the Alps as you walk against a backdrop of 4000m+ peaks on the Via Alpina, hike the classic Haute Route through the scenic Swiss canton of Valais, or discover the Jura highlands on foot on one of Europe’s most iconic long distance trails, the Jura Crest Trail. 

Complete an exhilarating circumnavigation of the the Matterhorn massif, stop to sample wine from cellar doors as you pass the UNESCO-listed vineyards of Lauvaux and the Rhone Valley on the historic Via Francigena pilgrim route, or enjoy a relaxed pace quintessential Swiss alpine walk in the Bernese Oberland.

Experience staying in handpicked charismatic mountain lodges and sampling local delicacies including Raclette.
