A Classy, Majestic Resort in the Swiss Alps — Grand Resort Bad Ragaz

Positioned in a valley surrounded by magnificent Swiss Alps, lies the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz. I have heard so many excellent things about Bad Ragaz but, until now, I have not had a chance to visit. I was blown away by the experience and wish I’d visited sooner. It’s a perfect place for a vacation for relaxation and wellness. In fact, I think the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz is like Disneyland for adults, as everything you could want is in one resort. It is not a resort just for mature adults, it caters to family and young couples. The diversity of choices for restaurants and activities offers something for everyone.

Bad Ragaz is famous for their healing waters, their 36.5 celsius thermal waters, the perfect bath temperature. They have an abundance of indoor and outdoor pools, spas and saunas. In total, there are over 7300 square meters of natural thermal pools in the resort. What an incredible feature to offer your hotel guests.

Hiking Monte Brè in Lugano

After years of living in Lugano, I figured it was about time I hiked Monte Brè. More than once I’ve been told that Monte Brè has some of the best views over Lugano, and that I never doubted. But now I can concur, Monte Brè offers breathtaking views.

You have a few options when hiking Monte Brè. First, you can hike up or down. As we only had the morning to hike we opted for the easier hike, going down. The 5.5 km (3.4 miles) hike down Monte Brè was fairly straight forward with well marked out hiking paths along the way. It took us about 1.5 hours to hike down.

Hiking 3 Alpine Lakes in Ticino: Lago Tremorgio, Lago di Leit and Lago di Morghirolo.

I think I may have found my new favorite hike in Ticino. Last week I did a hike with some friends and fell in love with the area. The hiking route was absolutely gorgeous, much of it was above the tree line passing by three amazing alpine lakes: Lago Tremorgio, Lago di Leit and Lago di Morghirolo.

Hiking Monte Lema to Monte Tamaro – in Ticino Switzerland (Tessin)

We have been in Ticino for almost seven years now and this hike has been on our radar since year one. I think it took us so long to do this hike, as we were never quite sure of the logistics of how to do it. Lema to Tamaro is a one-way hike, well obviously, you can do it RT, but hiking for 10+ hours in a single day is a little much. Not to mention the funiculars close, so you would have to hike down the mountain.

A Swiss Mountain Retreat: Hotel Piz Buin – Klosters

Living in Switzerland for more than a decade, I am still amazed at how we find new places to explore with which we fall in love. We’ve been to Davos a few times but have never visited the little town of Klosters, just 15 minutes outside of Davos. The town of Klosters, in the Swiss canton of Graubünden, won our hearts over like many Swiss villages do.
