Sport and activity holidays
Holidays are there to be enjoyed, but not everyone wants to spend them slowly roasting on the beach. Some people enjoy being active on holiday. More and more Swiss people are using the "best weeks of the year" for sports activities and are booking sport and activity holidays.
No matter how big or small the budget, whether far away or right on your doorstep, activity holidays are becoming ever more popular. Take a look at our inspirational suggestions and return to work brimming with vitality.
Bicycle toursBicycles are the ideal mode of transport for discovering previously unexplored regions while also doing something for your health. Cycling not only allows you to commune with nature on traffic-free forest paths or alongside winding streams and rivers, it also takes you to places that invite you to linger. You can find some interesting suggestions at SchweizMobil or EuroVelo.
Camping holidaysWhether young or old, alone or with the whole family, camping remains enormously popular. Camping is an ideal low-cost alternative to expensive holiday apartments and hotels for families or individuals on a restricted budget. It's not just great fun; it's also a fantastic adventure for young and old. You can find a selection of Switzerland's most beautiful campsites on the TCS website (only in German).
Adventure holidaysThese holidays offer endless variety. Every day you have the opportunity to do something new and different. They are ideal for solo travellers looking for an in-depth all-round experience of countries near and far. They generally cater for small groups, which means they're perfect for making new friends and meeting new travelling companions. You can find great offers through travel agencies like Globetrotter (only in German) or StaTravel.
