Switzerland has a well-established reputation for perfection. Commonly, it’s noticed in Swiss craftsmanship—think premium pocketknives, elegant pens, and luxury watches—but we notice an even greater pride of precision in nature. Everything runs smoothly, no matter how remote: the cog railways climbing up mountain faces, the perfectly pruned vineyards of Chablais, or the impossibly tidy chalet surrounded by nothing but Alpine lakes and pastures clanging with cowbells.
A charming place for a European bike tour, Switzerland combines the appeal of four different languages and a breadth of landscapes, from the cosmopolitan centers of Zurich and Geneva to the snow-covered peaks of the Swiss Alps.
