Where Should We Go?

Jump to last reply

I am looking for some help…

We are planning our summer trip next year. The plan is only half way developed, and hoping you all can help fill in the second half.

Our goal on this trip is mostly to relax (which is in contrast to what I normally do on these trips, but my family is excited to be setting the pace). We will spend two weeks, we don’t want to be in cities but we want to be someplace where there are recreational opportunities like hiking, boating, or just going to a beach.

We will travel to Zurich, Switzerland and from there spend a week or so in Mürren. This flight is booked. We have been here before, so we know it meets all of our requirements.

The question is week two. This is where I need some input. We have talked about the following ideas:

Another location in Switzerland, perhaps around Lake Lacarno.
French Alps
Lake District in Austria
Amalfi Coast area

So, I know that is a broad list. We have not been to any of these areas and are interested in getting to all of them some day. But what would be best for this kind of trip – and maybe I am missing some other great spot?

Oh, and I haven’t booked the return flight yet, so don’t take into account our departure airport.

Thanks for all the help.
