About Me

Hi, I’m Carolyn.  Welcome to Holidays to Switzerland!

Carolyn of Holidays to Switzerland

I first visited Switzerland more than 30 years ago and it was love at first sight!  My happy place is Lauterbrunnen in the Jungfrau Region – it was my introduction to Switzerland and a place I’ve been fortunate to return to many times since.

I’ve never found a place in Switzerland I don’t love but Lauterbrunnen will forever hold my heart ♥.

After my first trip to Switzerland, my husband and I enjoyed numerous Swiss family holidays with our two boys.  Now that they’ve grown up and left home, the two of us visit Switzerland each year to indulge our love of this beautiful country.

MY SWISS TRAVEL EXPERIENCE

I worked as a travel consultant for over ten years, the last five of those specialising in European trip planning.  As Switzerland has always been my number one love, during this time I completed a training course with Switzerland Tourism and became a Switzerland Certified Specialist in 2012-13.

I was also fortunate to be invited by Switzerland Tourism to attend their week-long Travel Workshop in Zurich in May 2012.

On my dozen or so trips to Switzerland I’ve visited a vast majority of the country – travelling by both car and train (and on one occasion, on a coach tour) – to explore both the popular and less well-known destinations for myself.

HOLIDAYS TO SWITZERLAND

With so many Switzerland travel tips to share, it seemed logical to create Holidays to Switzerland so that I can help others with their Switzerland travel planning.  I’m passionate about encouraging everyone to experience the delights of a Swiss vacation.

Whether you are attracted by Switzerland’s elegant cities, charming villages or picturesque rural and mountain landscapes, you’ve come to the right place.  My aim is to help you plan an itinerary based on your interests, whether that be to the known tourist hot spots or to lesser-known parts of the country.

On the website you’ll find detailed information on the best places to visit in Switzerland, transport options – including info on the amazing Swiss rail network, things to do in Switzerland, itineraries by car and train, accommodation suggestions and resources to help you plan the ideal Switzerland vacation.

For info on travels elsewhere in Europe, visit my other site Holidays to Europe.

Thanks for visiting Holidays to Switzerland!
