Lauterbrunnen Valley, Switzerland

"With so many jaw-dropping sights in one frame, you couldn’t make it up. We’re here to guarantee that this is just what the Lauterbrunnen Valley looks like.
Talk us through all of the magnificent natural phenomena we can see.

There are over 72 waterfalls dotted throughout the valley, including the 30m-high Staubbach Falls, one of Europe’s highest; there are also lush Alpine meadows; sheer cliff faces; dizzying mountain peaks; and several slow-moving glaciers.
It’s sounding like an extreme sport lover's paradise.

It’s certainly a choose-your-own-Alpine-adventure kind of place. You’re spoilt for choice with skiing, mountaineering, rock-climbing, hiking, paragliding, mountain biking, skydiving, or even dog-sledding all on the agenda.
Just the idea of all this activity is making us tired.

Then have a ride on one of the cable cars that travel between mountain peaks, or settle into a meadow picnic spot and just admire the view. There are many short walks close to valley villages that don’t require an excess of adrenaline."
