Switzerland offers some spectacular mountain scenery that looks so perfect. The mountain air is so clear and everywhere seems to be so clean. Almost every mountain has a railway or cable car to take you to the summit and everything just works perfectly like clockwork.

I visited in the summer, when the valleys were warm and bathed in sunshine but the mountain peaks were still snow-covered. In fact in August people were still skiing on the top of the Jungfrau. Everywhere you turn your head there is another panorama waiting to be photographed, whether it be mountains or lakes.

There is plenty to see and do in the Bernese Oberland and being without a car isn't a problem thanks to the fantastic public transport system. In fact you can get to more places on public transport than you could with a car anyway.

It's worth taking walks along the well signposted paths through the mountains, for this is where you can experience the beauty of the country, as well as getting some great pictures.
