We offer you a new summer program "Trip to Andermatt". Summer in Switzerland is a carnival of colors, lush greenery, turquoise lakes, well-groomed meadows and the bright sun ... This amazing country is even more interesting in summer and provides more opportunities for outdoor activities than in winter!
An individual program designed for 4 days.
Historical background: Andermatt. Andermatt is a small village (1444 m) on the northern slope of the St. Gotthard Pass that has become firmly established not only in the history of Switzerland, but also Russia. Andermatt is the personification of Russian military glory, being inextricably linked with the name of Suvorov. The most difficult battle, threatening the failure of the whole campaign, happened right here, near Andermatt, at the Devil's Bridge. On that day, Russian troops accomplished the impossible, breaking through the perfectly protected bridge, the only passage to Zürich.
This passage cost our country more than 2,000 lives. And if it were not for the talent of Suvorov as the commander, the Russian army would have nearly ceased to exist. Now the monument erected in Switzerland and dedicated to our soldiers brings back the memories of this.
Andermatt is conveniently located in central Switzerland: you can reach it from Stuttgart or Munich in 4 hours, from Milan in 2 hours and from Lucerne and Zürich in just 90 minutes. There is a landing site for private jets located just a 45-minute drive away.
For those who love history, nature and walks in the open air, we offer a sports program in Andermatt:
Accommodation in a 5 * hotel The CHEDI (The Leading Hotels of the World).
Day 1 Arrival in Zurich, transfer to Andermatt (about 2 hours). Check-in at the hotel and rest. Visit the spa area of 2400 sq. m. with wellness and spa areas, a fitness center, a hot tub, a steam bath and a sauna.
DAY 2 Hiking along the route of the Russian army from Andermatt to Wassen; the duration of the route is approximately 3 hours 30 minutes. From Wassen you can return by bus, or the same way, on foot.
Day 3 Via Ferrata Diavolo. Starts at the monument to Suvorov and lasts approximately 3 hours 30 minutes. Via Ferrata is a rocky section especially equipped with fixed ropes and stairs that allow you to climb a nearly vertical slope. This is a type of sport, something between mountain tourism and mountaineering, accessible to both amateurs and professionals.
DAY 4 A tour on electric bicycles from Andermatt to Airolo, the place where the Alpine campaign of the Russian Army began, led by A.V. Suvorov. / 27 km one way and 27 km back. Energetic climbs and descents along the valleys, pleasant stretches through neat vineyards, historical sites and small wineries where you can taste the local wine. An electric bike will make the trip easier: all you have to do is to sit on the miracle bike and press the pedals lightly, and the e-bike will take you through the valley with almost no effort from you. With the help of a smart additional mechanism that helps you pedal, you will overcome even the most difficult climb or descent with a smile!
DAY 5 if desired, you can continue the program (hiking or biking to the Saint Gotthard pass at 2106 m, where the Russian army passed. A picnic in nature surrounded by mountains ...)
