Europe's largest subterranean lake that can be sailed upon lies between Sion and Sierre. The water grotto is easily accessible and there is a boat tour for viewing it. The guides on the boat tell visitors about the history of the cave and its geology.
In three day-tours from Eastern Switzerland to Geneva. The tour begins in St. Margrethen and travels via Heiden and Trogen to Appenzell. Nowhere else in Switzerland does the landscape change from a hilly region, such as the one in the Mittelland, to the Alpine mountain world as abruptly as in the Alpstein region. The tour continues via Urnäsch to Neu St. Johann in Toggenburg, the valley of the Churfirsten.
The second stage of the East-West Tour begins in Desentis and leads right away across the first pass of the day, the Oberalp Pass, to Andermatt. The Urseren Valley (Kanton Uri) at the foot the Gotthard Pass is one of Switzerland’s most imposing high valleys. Andermatt, the largest of the valley’s three villages, is located at the intersection of the pass routes from North to South and from West to East.
