Interlaken, Switzerland Travel Guide Last Updated: Dec 2021

If you are looking for a base in Switzerland to be able to enjoy the Alpine scenery and activities, the small town of Interlaken might be ideal. It occupies a valley between two lakes and the whole area is surrounded by mountains. This is certainly the adventure capital of Switzerland if not all of Europe. In summer you have trekking, rafting, and bungee jumping among your options, and in winter there is great skiing and snowboarding nearby.
