Scenic walks with a welcoming mountain restaurant en route Easy to moderate walks in the Swiss mountains

Here is a selection of some of the best walks through the Swiss mountains. We have chosen these walks in conjunction with the tourist offices, based on the criteria of having a difficulty level of easy to moderate, offering great views, and featuring a stop along the way in a mountain restaurant.

The restaurants you will find in the mountains range from small family-run 'huts' to busier places with wide, sunny terraces. What they all have in common are great views, a warm welcome and hearty Swiss food, often sourced from the local area. En guete!

Good to know

When planning a mountain walk, it is always best to check ahead, since cable cars, buses and restaurants often take a break between ski and summer seasons. 

These walks are relatively gentle, but sturdy footwear is nevertheless recommended. It is also wise to be prepared for all weathers: suncream, hats, water bottles - and cagoules!

All holidays include a Half Fare Card which will give you up to 50% discounts on trains, buses, boats and cable cars. In addition, some resorts actually offer free travel in the mountains during the summer. Elsewhere, we can help you with recommendations for regional travel passes which may save you money if you are planning several trips.
