Swiss Alps

May 13, 2012

The Swiss Alps are the portion of the Alps Mountain Range in Europe that lie within Switzerland.  They cover 65% of Switzerland’s surface area and are widely known throughout the world as a top destination for skiing.   Original tourists from Britain visited to summit the high peaks and hike the vast mountains and today that remains one of the top reasons people visit.

Because Switzerland has a vast network of public transportation, most mountain villages can be reached by public transportation without the need of renting a car.  Most villages are within 3 hours of a large city, and the furthest cities are 4-6 hours away.
