In addition to these exciting activities, we will enjoy quaint villages nestled in both the Swiss and French Alps and discover what the mountain life is all about. We’ll relax on the shores of Lake Annecy, one of France’s hidden gems. During our time in Switzerland, we’ll even visit Zermatt, which is home to the most famous of the Alps: the Matterhorn itself. We will finish our trip with a visit to experience the laidback lifestyle in Lake Como, Italy.
