Connected by a network of trains and cable cars, this majestic vacation spot is accessible for all. The Swiss Alps are home to some of the highest mountains in the Alps, including the Monte Rosa, which stands at 4,634 m (15,203 ft). Pristine white snow and perfect blue skies await you, and ski sports and hiking trails aplenty top the list of things to do.

Mother Svea
Once the land of the Vikings, Sweden today combines a long and fascinating history with a propensity for the very modern. The grand Romanesque churches that dot the countryside contrast with the clean, simple lines and partiality for organization the country is known for. With its reverence for the shy, reserved, and considerate, the nation exudes a sensation of being comfortable. Peek into the quiet lives from afar, gather around traditional "fika" coffee with loved ones, or dine on meatballs, herring, and potatoes. Immerse yourself in nature among the forests and trails so respected by their citizens, and take in the latest design and cultural offerings in this modest yet aesthetically savvy country.
