What To Expect

Ice floes like in the Antarctic break off here on warm days and trigger whole tidal waves. An overwhelming natural spectacle around the idyllic glacier lake. • Unique feelings and relaxation are guaranteed here. Our tour guide (environmental expert MSc ETH Zurich) will tell you a lot of background information about the origin of this lake and how it will continue with Switzerland due to climate change. Also beautiful mountain flowers like gentians and depending on the season orchids are findable.

Important: Most of the places we visit are within walking distance. However, the glacier lake can only be seen in an overall two-hour hike with good footwear. Alternative: Idyllic mountain lake (see picture)

• Good deeds: In addition, with a booked trip, you will support the bees and other flying insects in Switzerland, as we use part of our profits for the preservation of flowering meadows.

House of Laderach
On request visit to one of the best chocolatiers in Switzerland, which is also very well known abroad. Here you can buy really cheap chocolate and sometimes saves more than 60% compared to the normal store. Usually you can also have a look at the factory. Unfortunately, this is not possible at the moment because renovation work is taking place.

A perfect day in off-the-beaten path Switzerland
EBPII, 20-10-2022
This experience was like nothing else I’ve ever done in Switzerland. My guide, Marc, is a co-owner of the company. He was knowledgeable, courteous, friendly, interested in what I wanted to do and loved showing me his beautiful country.

We went to incredibly beautiful mountain vistas, alpine meadows, lakes, waterfalls, streams and towns. I saw sheep being herded by a sheep dog, heard little bleating lambs and the tinkle of bells on their mothers’ necks in many places. It was an incredibly positive experience. I visited places that I never would’ve seen or even known about in Switzerland, and all in one day.

A highlight of my day was when Marc pointed out the tiny meadow on the shore of Lake Lucerne where Switzerland was founded in 1291. I saw it from high above the meadow on a magnificent sunny day.

The grand finale of the day was seeing a UNESCO World Heritage waterfall in a remote area just off a highway in rural Switzerland. That capped a perfect day.

We even had a picnic by a brook. Marc fixed raclette that was delicious. He also offered me a mini-apple, which was. really tasty. Grown in Switzerland, it’s the smallest apple in the world.

Along the way, we visited William Tell’s birthplace, magnificent roadside chapels, and an alpine cheese shop where we bought the raclette cheese that Marc fixed for lunch. He also told me the whole story about William Tell and his bravery. It’s a story you never hear and is in the story books.

While it was expensive, the tour was well worth the price because of the insight I gained about the unique beauty of
off-the-beaten path Switzerland. I highly recommend that others take this tour.
Wonderful day exploring some secret wonders of Switzerland.

This is a little late but better late than never. We went out with Marc on May 23rd and had a fabulous time seeing some of the most beautiful, off the beaten path, secret wonders of Switzerland. We even had a picnic lunch and his girlfriend made us some delicious baked goods! Marc was a great guide and would highly recommend him.
An amazing experience of Switzerland

Breathtaking mountains

We had booked a day trip with Myswisspanorama and experienced a wonderful hike. Only one hour away from Zurich we could dive into the breathtaking and unique mountains. Obviously the views of the lakes and mountains were wonderful, but the information from our Guide (Marc) about the mountains was the real highlight. For example, Marc explained how to tell if there was a glacier at this place many years ago. Everything was very well organized and definitely worth the money. We would warmly recommend the tour to everyone.
Amazing Tour w/ the Family

This was a fantastic private tour. Marc, the tour guide, was very knowledgable and tailored the tour to our wants. Reading reviews of other tours, it seems like places get packed with tourists, however, Marc took us to places to experience the Alps and beautiful natural wonders while we were almost the only ones there. We were a family of eight and had a great time! Would definitely recommend this tour!
