Most people think of snow and skiing when they think of Switzerland. But Graubünden means a beautiful summer exploring the mountains and rivers and taking in all they have to offer. This gorgeous area is the source of the Rhine River and the most popular holiday area in Switzerland. To get the full impact of what the area brings while letting someone else do all the work, guided tours are the way to go.
If you enjoy hiking, a backpacking guided tour offers a little bit of everything – outdoor sports like bungee jumping as well as local culture in villages that provide that true Swiss ambience, complete with a visit to a cheese factory. You can visit caves and swim in the icy waters of a high mountain river. Your backpacking trip can even include visits to medieval castles.
If you love the thrill of river rafting, there are plenty of organized rafting tours on the Upper Rhine through the Rhine Gorge, the Swiss Grand Canyon. This could very well be one of the most exhilarating parts of your Graubünden holiday.
If you are lucky enough to include the resort town of St. Moritz in your itinerary, an ideal way to see the beautiful Engadin Valley and majesty of the Bundner Alps is a helicopter tour. Your tour in the sky will take you over picturesque mountain villages and follow the river Inn.
