Hi, i am planning to reach on 9th May to Switzerland from Paris and leave on 15th May for Venice. Me and my husband both love adventure. Can u please suggest how to spend these 6 days so as to get the full taste of Switzerland? We were thinking of 3 days in Interlaken and 2 days in Lucerne. We are totally open to changes..also what should we do in these places? Any particular adventure sport that we will remember all our life?

Hi Juhi1989, thanks for joining us!

What's the best itinerary for you depends on your interests and your definition of adventure (hiking, climbing, paragliding, rafting, etc.). Interlaken and Lucerne offer a lot to do and see, so could indeed be perfect bases for you. You can best take a look on the below pages to create a tentative plan, then get back to us with more questions:

I hope this gets you started!

Hi Juhi1989.

The plan looks good except for the 15th: Brienz is close to Interlaken and you'll pass by that town on the 13th. I would not make sense to go back there from Lucerne. I'd rather spend that day near Lucerne; there's plenty to do there, please see myswissalps.com/lucern e/activities.

If you book the paragliding flight at the beginning or end of the day you should be able to include that on the 10th, 12th or 13th. Please see www.viator.com/tours/I nterlaken/Paragliding-Experience-from-Interlaken.

You can add a hike (well, more like a walk) on the 12th: myswissalps.com/hiking /gruetschalp-muerren. Trails below 2000 m should be accessible by mid May: myswissalps.com/hiking.
