At the same time, you will enjoy some spectacular scenery as you find yourself literally on top of the world. Whether you’re looking for purely snow or hoping for an activity packed, multisports holiday, these three resorts offer you plenty of choice and are suitable for everyone in the family. Engelberg Titlis Despite its location near to Zurich and Lucerne, Engelberg is not as well-known as other Swiss resorts but it can certainly hold its own with regards to facilities and sports opportunities. Take the world’s first rotating gondola up on to the Titlis glacier and enjoy spectacular 360 degree views of the central Alps, until you reach the top of Klein Titlis at an altitude of 3028m. From there you can take the Ice Flyer chairlift to the Glacier Snow Park or ski down beautiful slopes into the valley below. With wide, sweeping, clear runs, the Titlis glacier ski area is a paradise for enthusiastic beginners and intermediates and the equipment available at the Glacier Park, such as snow tubes and sledges offers plenty of variety for a summer holiday with a difference.
