Join an active group of adventurous women who have been bitten by the hiking “bug” to explore Switzerland’s exhilarating alpine trails together while also discovering other things quintessentially Swiss: mountain cable cars, gingerbread, medieval churches, and even a Swiss yodeling contest.
During your adventure, you’ll get to know your expert Swiss guide, who will lead you and help you imagine life on the mountainside, far above the beautiful valleys below. You are also accompanied by an AdventureWomen Ambassador, committed to helping make your experience a fun and personally rewarding adventure and cheering you on as you reach beyond your comfort zone to take on new challenges uniquely!
Appenzell is one of the most legendary towns in Switzerland. The center of town is well preserved and has finely painted wooden houses and some stone buildings dating from the 16th century, including the town hall, which is now a local museum. The “Landesgemeindeplatz” is the square where annual outdoor voting takes place.
St. Gallen, the compact metropolis of eastern Switzerland between Lake Constance and Appenzellerland, has a charming, traffic-free old town. Colorfully painted oriel windows are a town feature. The Abbey precinct with the cathedral and Abbey Library has been accorded a UNESCO World Heritage listing. Hike into the mountains, and learn to make traditional gingerbread.
Experience Lucerne, the “City of Lights” Lucerne, the gateway to central Switzerland, has a view of an impressive mountainous panorama. Lucerne ranks amongst the world’s prettiest cities. Contributing to Lucerne’s cityscape alongside the world-famous Chapel Bridge and Water Tower are the Musegg Wall, the Jesuit Church, the Mill Bridge, the Lion Monument, the KKL culture and convention center, and a host of other local sites. Finally, standing just over 6,000 ft above sea level, the village of Furenalp boasts spectacular views and a beautiful waterfall.
