All over Europe there are heart-thumping-adrenaline-rushing activities to enjoy! Switzerland is just one of those destinations that is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. Here, you can have some of the most unforgettable adventures in one of the world’s most picturesque environments. Expat Explore has put together a selection of activities to try on your Swiss adventure!

Jungfraujoch – The Top of Europe

The highest train station in all of Europe, Jungfraujoch, offers just the kind of views that you’d expect! It stands at an incredible 3471m high. From the weather station at the summit, cast your gaze towards the nearby valley. You will see spectacular glaciers, the trademark Swiss villages nestled far below and a glorious panorama of rocky peaks all around. At this height, there’s always snow on the ground, meaning you can enjoy snowball fights in the middle of summer!

But it’s not just the view from the top that deserves a mention. The train-ride to the top is just as memorable. Verdant green valleys give way to snowy peaks and picture-perfect villages hug the mountain-side. If you’re heading up in the winter season, you’ll almost certainly spot skiers and snowboarders carving up the piste. Make sure you have your camera at the ready – this is one train-ride that you’ll want to remember for a long time to come!
