Bespoke School Trips to 

Swiss Alps

Few destinations conjour images rivalling those of towering mountains found in Switzerland.  This is just one reason the Swiss Alps is a classic geography school trip destination and why you should take a closer look at a school trip to Switzerland.

With opportunities for the study of glacial and fluvial processes, Karst landscapes and orography along with human aspects including industry and tourism - the Switzerland geogrpahy is an open air classroom ready to explore.Glacial studies can take place at the UNESCO Langgletscher glacier or Europe’s longest glacier, The Aletsch Glacier.  You can even do a glacial walk with a specialist guide and crampons at Langgletscher glacier for a once in a lifetime experience for your students.  Further glacial studies can be taken on Glacier 3000, also home to a fun park and the world’s only suspension bridge that connects two mountain peaks – Peak Walk.River processes can be studied with a guide and river amble at the Grand-Eau river basin.

Two of Switzerland’s best loved exports, cheese and chocolate, provide the basis for excellent industrial studies, at Gruyère cheese factory and Cailler chocolate factory. Throw in a stunning Swiss spa surrounded by mountains (Lavey-les-Bains), cave systems, salt mines, boat trips, renewable and hydro energy – and it is easy to see why more and more groups are choosing Switzerland for their school geography trip with Adaptable Travel.

A trip to beautiful Switzerland can not only provide field studies techniques and case study material for exams, but it will undoubtedly offer inspirational experiences and lasting memories for years to come.

Suggested Itinerary

All of our school trips to Switzerland are tailor-made, ensuring your group will get the perfect school trip. However, we are well versed in creating itineraries for groups, and are well placed to assist in creating your itinerary. Below is an itinerary you may wish to consider, or simply use as a starting point in your planning with Adaptable Travel.

01

After arriving in Switzerland by air, (subject to flight times) transfer to the amazing Lavey-Les-Bains spa with free time to relax in the mineral-rich waters of this naturally heated geothermal spa with outdoor pools surrounded by the mountains. You may also have time to visit the amazing Bex Salt Mines which is located nearby to the spa. An audio-visual installation will take you through centuries of history of the salt mine. Afterwards you will head onto your accommodation to check in and enjoy your evening meal.

02

Today your students will have the chance to explore glacial landforms at the Langgletscher Glacier. With coach and guide, head over to the Langgletscher Glacier to explore the UNESCO World Heritage site forefield of this huge glacier, which lies within the largest valley on the northern side of the Swiss Rhône valley, Lötschental. As an alternative today, you can choose instead to visit the amazing Aletsch Glacier, Europe’s longest glacier, and unquestionably one of the most spectacular in the world.

03

Today you will travel to the nearby village of Gruyere, to take a tour of the famous La Maison du Gruyère, cheese-making factory, named after its location. Students will learn how the cheese is made with an interactive exhibition, including tasting of course! Following this, you can visit the nearby Maison Cailler - Chocolate Factory. Return to your accommodation for an evening meal. Why not add in a visit to the local bowling alley in Chateau-d’Oex?

04

After breakfast, today you visit the fantastic Glacier 3000. After a double cable car ride atop the glacier, your guide will accompany students on a tour of the area, showcasing fantastic tourism and glacial landforms examples. Those brave enough can walk across the newly constructed Peak Walk suspension bridge, giving views of Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau. Atop Glacier 3000, you can also add-on the Snow Bus snowcat ride, the Alpine Coaster, and enjoy free sledging.

05

You may have some free time before your return to the UK. If you do, why not travel via Lake Geneva Enroute to the airport and enjoy a Lake Geneva Boat cruise?
