This tour focuses on the incredible alpine culture and traditions. This is a kaleidoscope of colour, sound and joy as people throng through the streets of the Alpine Villages around Switzerland. This amazing opportunity to discover the cultural diversity of the Swiss Alps is an adventure you should not miss!

Autumn in Switzerland begins with Alpabfahrt (Swiss cow parade), the annual tradition of 350,000 cows coming down the mountains. Swiss cows, having spent a long summer high up in the mountains, come down to the valleys for the cold winter months. The cows have floral crowns and their biggest, fanciest bells around their necks.

You will get to know a different country to the one other tourist see!!!
