Cheap flights from Switzerland

Life seems more fun if spent outdoors in a beautiful country like Switzerland. Extending across the north and south side of the Alps in West Central Europe, the country offers diverse landscapes and climates in a limited area. It also contains three geographic areas from the Swiss Alps to the south and then the Swiss Plateau on the center, and the Jura mountains to the west, which makes it excellent hiking territory for those looking to exert themselves.

Other fascinating natural wonders to see in Switzerland are the glaciers among the high valleys of the Swiss Alps. From here come the waters of several major rivers such as the Rhine, Rhone, Ticino, and Inn. They form a network that sustains Lake Geneva, Lake Constance, and Lake Maggiore, among a few of the 1,500 lakes in the country. This all present various opportunities for tourists out to see various parts of Switzerland's natural surroundings.

Where to go

When it comes to nature lovers, the region of Bernese Oberland is one of the best destinations in this part of Europe. One will find here the Reichenbachfalle, where Sherlock Holmes plunged to his 'death' in Conan Arthur Doyle's “The Final Problem.” It is easy to understand why Doyle chose this spot for the hero of his story, as the falls plunges 250 meters to the ground with a deafening roar that seems to proclaim its strength and majesty.

From here, tourists can turn to the Jungfraujoch, said to be the highest train station in Europe. Upon reaching here, tourists can look out to the icy wonderland of glaciers that can be a sight to behold. Tourists excited to see more panoramas can turn to the Schilthorn, where one can see from Titlis around to Mont Black, and even across to the Black Forest on a clear day. There is also a Bond World 007 exhibit here, which one can check out and practice a Bond demeanor.

Lucerne, another stunning part of Switzerland, should also not to be missed. One will find here a cobalt lake ringed by mountains and a well-preserved medieval Old Town called Altstadt. The sight can be breathtaking, especially when one go on a boating trip on the lake.

Corsica, an island that seems like to be a small country in the middle of the Mediterranean, is another place famous for its natural wonders. Those coming from Geneva can catch a seasonal flight going to Ajaccio, making this area by the Mediterranean convenient to visit.

Upon arriving here, tourists can venture to check out different parts of the island. One of the places to visit is Aiguilles de Bavella, one of the most striking and beautiful landscapes in the south of Corsica. The peaks surrounding here rise up to more than 1,600 meters, which make it fun to hike for professional hikers. From here, tourists can venture to the Iles Lavezzi, a clutch of uninhabited islets where one can splash in the tranquil blue waters.

For more beautiful surroundings, tourists can go all the way to the Philippines. Connecting flights can be arranged to arrive at Boracay, named as the second-best island destination in the world by Travel & Leisure. The White Beach is the center of all the action, where a white stretch of sand encapsulates blue waters. Accommodations and facilities also abound here, as well as a range of restaurants, bars, and dive shops. There are also colorful boats around, with night bringing its own round of entertainment from the fire dancers.

After frolicking in Boracay, tourists can check out the wonders of Palawan with its breathtaking seascapes. Lake Kayangan, one of Coron's primary attractions, can also be added to the itinerary.
