My husband and I are going to the Swiss Alps for the first time at age 70. We were both long time Rocky Mountain hikers but will be happy to do light to moderate hiking to see nature during the day with cozy accommodations in the evening. Looking for suggestions on how to start planning and where to go for a week's visit.
