Corona/COVID-19 friendly activities in Switzerland

Print this page
St. Moritz lake

Not all of Switzerland is crowded. Avoid busy places and enjoy Switzerland in a safe manner.

Plan smart, be safe

We've listed two types of activities for you to consider while the coronavirus is among us:

  • COVID-19 safe activities: the tour operator has taken extra precautions. Examples are extra cleaning, hand sanitizer being available, face mask requirements, guides washing their hands more often, etc.
  • COVID-19 friendly activities: these activities allow you to easily avoid crowded places and apply social distancing. While it's not possible to completely avoid people being around, the listed activities only include places where it's easier to avoid crowds. They can be done individually or in small groups. Mass transport is avoided. The tours with a private guide allow adjustments to be made more easily.

Please scroll down to find our suggestions.

Be aware and adapt to the circumstances

It is important to apply social distances at all times, so you may need to adjust your plans on the spot. Avoid busy places and busy times. For example, if a castle is busy with visitors, then enjoy the exterior only. If you have a guide, he or she can help with the planning. Be flexible, and keep in mind that Switzerland has countless beautiful sites, not limited to the famous ones.

Hiking

Hiking is another pleasant and safe way to explore the country, especially if you avoid potentially crowded cable cars. Self guided walks that are not in the mountains and that begin and end at the same location are particularly interesting. A few examples:

Privately guided tours

The opposite of a large group: a private guide, a customized tour program tailored to your needs, and private transportation for your party only. You'll save a lot of time planning, and holiday time will be spent efficiently for sure. You can book private tours for one day or one activity, or for multiple days.

Scenic trips by car

Switzerland has an excellent public transportation system, and you can get by without a car easily. However, you may prefer car over train traveling at the moment in order to avoid other travelers. Learn all you need to know about driving in the Swiss Alps, the motorway vignette, parking, traffic rules and more here.

You can make stunning scenic rides by car, either as day trips from one destination or as a multi-day tour crossing several Swiss regions. We have listed suggestions for you here.
