Hi, we are a family of 5 travelling with our kids, all boys aged 19, 18 and 13. I am planning a trip to Switzerland from 3 July to 8 July for 5 nights from UK. Our interests are to do some shopping and admire some of the scenic views of Switzerland, with some basic hiking and one or two adventurous activities for the kids. My initial plans are the following
1. Arrive Zurich on 3 July in noon and travel to lucerne by train on that day. As this is a Sunday, I note shops are closed on Sundays in Zurich so we were thinking of leaving the last day to browse Zurich and do some shopping.
2. Stay in Lucerne for 1 night . Depending on what activities there are in lucerne. Or should we just skip lucerne and head straight to interlaken?
3. Interlaken for 2 to 4 nights depending if we will skip our stay in Lucerne We are thinking of doing some rafting, viewing the scenic views, basic hiking to view the scenes and go to some tourist attractions, go on some cable cars. We note the scenes in Wengen and the valley in lauterbrunnen are amazing. Would also like to do a boat trip in the evening. Any suggestions that you believe will be enjoyable for teenagers as we don't want the boys to feel bored on this trip!
4. We are planning to return to Zurich for shopping on Thursday morning on 7 July and staying for the night and will return to London on Friday evening. Our flight back is at 7pm
Any suggestions and advice for our first trip to Switzerland are most welcomed!
