The beautiful lakes of Interlaken

Interlaken…it gets it’s name from well, being literally surrounded by lakes and water! Lake Breinz and Lake Thun which sit either side of the town are not only some of the most stunning in Switzerland but in the entire world.

Guide to Interlaken, Switzerland. The Adventure Capital Of The World!!

We recently took what could be described at the trip of a lifetime to interlaken (and would be if we didn’t plan on making a lifetime of these trips!) We ticked so much off our bucket list in just one week that we lost count, not just every day but every minute of ever hour […]

Trümmelbach falls, The amazing power of nature on a budget! Switzerland

Trümmelbach falls are an impressive and somewhat scary display of the power of nature buried within a deep system of caves and tunnels in the side of the lauterbrunnen valley in the Swiss Alps.

Harder Kulm: The Top of Interlaken!

Harder Kulm is a mountain of 4,337 ft which overlooks the amazing Swiss town of Interlaken.

Via Ferrata 2000ft above Lauterbrunnen valley, Swiss Alps!

“Via Ferrata” or The Iron Way in English is an extreme hike which takes you to places only experienced alpine mountaineers would ever be able to find themselves.

White water rafting in the glacial waters of Jungfrau, Swiss alps

White Water Rafting, it had been on our bucket list for some time, but in all honesty as much as we wanted to give it a try we didn’t really know what to expect. We thought that maybe being on such a big raft it would be fun but a little tame, so with that […]

Canyoning in the epic Chli Schliere, SWITZERLAND!

A long weekend in Basel – Switzerland on a budget!

Switzerland had long been on my list of countries I was desperate. I had however come across a fellow bloggers article on Basel and it really got under my skin. The bright red Rathaus and the emerald green river running though the heart of the city, those images made me realise that Switzerland was somewhere […]
