Switzerland - the Jungfrau area especialy - is my idea of heaven on earth.
The mountain transport is excellent and the hiking is exhilarating.
This picture of the reflection in the Bachalpsee is an all time favourite
- I have a greatly enlarged version hanging in my home.
Switzerland has many other beautiful areas apart from The Bernese Oberland
so please check out my other Swiss pages for more details -many tips are just a taster here!


A visit to Switzerland would not be complete without visiting Zermatt in the Valais region and when the clouds clear and the Mattehorn shows herself it truly is a magnificent sight. A hikers heaven here too and we have been fortunate to enjoy some majestic scenery here.

The hiking paths in Switzerland are well maintained, you'll always find waymarks and the times tend to be accurate and as for the scenery, well its simply stunnig...just take a look and see how easy the paths can be too!

    Your alpine photos are excellent. They do these natural wonders justice. Your narratives are well written and informative. Thanks
