Get to know Swiss Alps with Viator

Historically considered the gateway between Northern and Southern Europe, the Swiss Alps aren't just a geographic landmark. Sweeping all the way across southern Switzerland, these iconic peaks are central to Swiss nationhood itself: indeed, it was among the Alps that the confederation is said to have originated. The area is perhaps most famous for world-class winter sports, but other cultural traditions—such as fondue, yodeling, and the practice of pasturing animals in mountain fields—are all still important parts of daily life.
