Trekking in SwitzerlandTrekking in Switzerland

Centrally located within Europe, the small landlocked country of Switzerland is surrounded by France, Germany, Liechtenstein, Austria and Italy. Almost two-thirds of the land area can be categorised as mountainous, with the European Alps taking up the southern and central parts of the country. Alpine meadows, thick forest and snow-capped peaks combine to make Switzerland one of the most picturesque of European countries. Mont Blanc (4808m / 15,767ft) is Western Europe's highest peak and can (at least in part) be claimed by Switzerland. The biggest mountain lying entirely within Switzerland is the huge many-summitted massif of Monte Rosa (4634m / 15,200ft), which dominates the town of Zermatt. In fact, no fewer than 51 of the Alpine `fourthousanders` are located in the Swiss canton of Valais and the Saas Fee Valley alone is ringed by 13 of them. There is excellent mountain trekking in this area and many of the biggest peaks present straightforward mountaineering objectives, when tackled with a professional IFMGA guide.
