Highlights – Zermatt: The Matterhorn and the Matter valley, surrounded by 30 peaks topping 4,000 m (13,000 ft.); the Mont Rosa massif and Dufourspitze, the highest point in Switzerland; Gornergrat, a cog railway that travels 3,089 m (10,134 ft.) to an impressive overlook, and the Klein Matterhorn, the end point of Europe’s highest cable car at 3,820 m (12,533 ft.); famous Höhbalmen hike

Highlights – Sils Maria: Sils Maria a small village as charming as one can be is just 20 minutes from glitzy St. Moritz.  St. Moritz is well know for good reason it is in the center of some of the best hiking and outdoor activities in Switzerland as is Sils Maria but without the glitz just unmatched charm.  The Upper Engadine is certainly one of the most impressive landscapes in Switzerland. Sils Maria The gate to the romantic Fex Valley is idyllically embedded between Lake Sils and Lake Silvaplana. With only 750 inhabitants, Sils presents itself in an introspective, familiar and inviting manner. Besides the tremendous natural experience, the cultural offerings are also exquisite.
