Known for its mountainous views, breath-taking nature, quaint villages and the sky-scraping peaks of the Alps; Switzerland is the perfect quick gateway for any nature lover. It is a country packed with vibrancy, greenery and luxury ski resorts so there are endless sites to see, however, if you happen to be there for just a couple of days here are the must-see tourist attractions that Switzerland has to offer. Must visit: Arosa Bear Sanctuary Set to launch this summer, the Arosa Bear Sanctuary is a new animal protection project based in Arosa in the canton of Graubünden. It is set to be the peaceful and spacious new home of five brown bears, who were previously abused and living in poor conditions. The project also aims to bring more tourism to Arosa. Tourists can observe the bears from the visitors’ platform, whilst children can play in the “bear school” playground, meaning there is something for all ages. Must do: get on your bike! Cycling tours are proving popular with visitors from across the globe. Choose from a range of routes through Switzerland's beautiful, mountainous countryside. Most eye-catching of all is the “Valais vineyards on wheels” route, which sees tourists leisurely cycling through Martigny and Verbier to witness the famous vineyards that make up the Valais Vineyard Path. During this route, you can visit the smallest vineyard in the world, which just so happens to be own by the Dalai Lama! Crack open a bottle of red at Farinet's Vineyard and enjoy the view.
