Family activities in Switzerland

Switzerland boasts a long ski season and excellent snow conditions, making it the ideal destination for a ski vacation.
There are a variety of terrains to cater to skiers of all levels and abilities. Saas-Fee and Grindelwald are great for beginners, while Les Portes du Soleil—the largest ski complex in the country—has plenty of runs for both beginners and intermediate skiers. For experienced skiers, there’s Zermatt and Verbier. The latter offers heli-skiing and plenty of off-piste routes.
The little ones aren’t left out—the skiing schools typically offer lessons or activities for children aged three and above, and the children are grouped by their age groups and skiing abilities. Your Switzerland chalet concierge can provide recommendations, and make arrangements for group or private ski lessons.
Or round up the family for an afternoon of fun at the skating rink. You can go ice skating at the outdoor ice rinks, or on the lakes during the winter. The indoor skating rinks are a great option for bad weather days—and depending on the venue, you may also play a game of ice hockey or dance the evening away at an ice-disco event.
Tobogganing is a great way to take in the postcard-perfect landscape, accompanied by a surge of adrenaline. Many ski resorts have long toboggan runs, providing an exciting alternative to skiing. Do check in with your Switzerland chalet concierge for further information and safety recommendations, particularly if you’re bringing young children along.
But tobogganing isn’t limited to the winter season here. The Pradaschier toboggan in Churwalden runs on elevated tracks, so it is operational all year round. A thrilling ride is guaranteed: the run features 31 bends and a drop in height of 480 metres, and you can ride at speeds of up to 40 km/h.
Embarking on a long and leisurely stroll promotes relaxation, and is a way to immerse yourself in nature. During the wintertime, you can opt for shoesnowing. If you’re bringing young children, keep things kid-friendly by choosing soft-packed trails, and bring a sled along so the little ones can rest when they get tired.
During the summer, explore one of the country’s many theme trails, which combine entertainment with physical activity for kids. The trails lead visitors through scenic landscapes, and feature educational games and activities along the way.

Activities and points of interest in Switzerland

Switzerland offers a wide range of summertime activities, including canyoning, cycling, hiking, mountain biking, Via Ferrata climbing and more.
After all that physical activity, there’s no better way to unwind than spending the day at the spa. There are plenty of benefits to getting a massage: it works out the knots and tension, improves circulation and releases toxins from the body. Many ski resorts feature a variety of spas and wellness centres, and there’s also the option of staying in to enjoy an in-house massage or spa treatment at your Switzerland chalet.
Switzerland is known for its breathtaking scenery, and you can take it all in from one of the many viewpoints spread out across the country. There are plenty of no-hike viewpoints that are easy to visit, even with young children. Head to Matterhorn Glacier Paradise for uninterrupted views to the Matterhorn, ride a rotating cable car to the summit of Mount Titlis, or visit Mont Fort or Mount Pilatus for sweeping alpine views.

Switzerland’s restaurants, cafes & bars

Foodies in for a treat—the country’s wide-ranging food scene means you can take your pick from seafood eateries, slopeside restaurants, Michelin-starred venues, authentic Swiss restaurants and more.
Let’s start with the Michelin-starred restaurants. Check out La Table d'Adrien in Verbier, Da Vittorio in St. Moritz and Chez Vrony in Zermatt.
Next on the list are some of our personal favourites, which includes Restaurant La Grange, a venue known for its seafood specialties. Restaurant Schäferstube serves a mean cheese and meat fondue, plus mouthwatering wood-fired grill meats. Château de Villa is for cheese lovers—the restaurant is known for its excellent raclette.
There’s a variety of après-ski options, so it’s up to you to choose: your post-ski evening can be as quiet or as lively as you want it to be.
The ski resorts of Zermatt, Verbier, Grindelwald and Crans-Montana are known for its vibrant après-ski scenes, and lend themselves to Switzerland chalet vacationers looking to party late into the night. You can also take things easy by enjoying a beer at a laidback mountainside venue, complete with picture-perfect views.
Self-catering at your Switzerland chalet is convenient, so it’s a great option for days when you feel like staying in. Or opt for a private dining experience, and leave it all—the grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning—to the chef and housekeeping team at your Switzerland chalet.
