My dream vacation with S-Trip, would be to travel to Europe and experience EuroGrad! Although there are other trips to hot, white sandy beaches, I am a Canadian girl and I like the cold. I would absolutely love to visit Switzerland! Nothing could be more relaxing, than enjoying the beautiful landscape of Lauterbrunnen.

This beautiful valley is full of history, culture and activities to do all-year-round. Lauterbrunnen is known for its breathtaking waterfalls. The name ‘Lauter Brunnen’ means many fountains. There are 72 waterfalls in the Lauterbrunnen Valley, the most famous being the Staubbach Falls. Plunging almost 300 metres from an overhanging rock face, they are one of the highest free-falling waterfalls in Europe!

I am not a skier, but i would love to learn! There is no better place to learn, other than the Swiss Alps! If I realize skiing isn’t my forte, there are many gorgeous hiking trails and 50km of toboggan runs!

Lauterbrunnen also offers a unique theme trail in the UNESCO World Heritage region. You are able to experience the history of the area through sign posts, original pictograms and a topical flyer show the way to some of the most important sites in this nature preserve. In 2005, the first themes included in the trail will be waterfalls, Alpine agriculture, spiritually energizing sites, and mountain hotels.

Being able to visit Lauderbrunnen would be an unforgettable life experience. Switzerland is so rich in culture, history and the landscape looks like it came straight out of a fairytale.
