Swiss Alps Tours from Geneva

Swiss Alps Tours from Geneva

Geneva is an ideal base from which to explore Switzerland’s mountain landscapes thanks to the extensive road and rail links leading from the city into the heart of the Swiss Alps. Here are a few ways to escape the city and discover the beauty of rural Switzerland.

Full-Day Tours

With a full day, travelers departing from Geneva have a wide range of tours and destinations from which to choose. Those with a head for heights can ride the cable car to the Aiguille du Midi peak in Chamonix for panoramic views over Mont Blanc and the surrounding valleys, or take the scenic cog railway to the glacier at Montenvers. Travel through beautiful Alpine scenery aboard the Golden Pass Panoramic Express train; take to the skies on a paragliding adventure; or master your skiing turns on the slopes of Chamonix in winter. Day trips often combine one or more of these experiences for a full day of exploring.

Multi-Day Tours

Travel further from Geneva on a multi-day tour, and explore the countryside of the Swiss Alps, Italy, and Liechtenstein. Spin through the foothills of the Alps to the lakeside towns of Lausanne and Montreux; take the cogwheel train from Tasch to the ski resort of Zermatt; cross the Nufenen Pass to the shores of Lake Como in Italy; and soak up the glitz and glamour of St. Moritz. Along the way, visit some of the region's most impressive natural and cultural landmarks, and gain insight into Europe’s culture and history.

 

Things to Know

  • Full-day tours typically last eight to 10 hours, and usually include entry fees where applicable, a guide, rail or cable car tickets, and round-trip transport from Geneva.

  • Guided multi-day tours usually include accommodations, some meals, cogwheel train tickets, and transport.

  • The weather at high altitude in the Swiss Alps changes quickly, so warm layers are recommended throughout the year.

  • Whether you’re visiting in summer or winter, bring sturdy hiking boots to tackle the rocky or snowy terrain.
