National Geographic Traveller (UK) has teamed up with Mürren Tourism to offer an action-packed break to the Swiss Alps.
Hit the slopes
At 5,400ft, Mürren is one of Switzerland’s highest resorts. Ski the nine-mile INFERNO run from the top of the 9,800ft-high Schilthorn to the valley, scene of the exciting ski chase in the Bond film, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. If you’re not so intrepid, simply enjoy the nursery slopes and cosy Alpine huts with mountain views. muerren.swiss myswitzerland.com
Car-free Mürren breathes charm, tradition and character. Famous for its Eiger views, it’s the ideal hideaway for relaxing. For a more energetic stay, there’s hiking, biking, paragliding or the thrilling Via Ferrata, a climbing route with 2,000ft of exposure and a 260ft Nepal bridge to finish.
In search of Bond
Ride the Schilthorn Cable Car for a mountain panorama and a Bond Brunch in the revolving Piz Gloria restaurant. Afterwards, tour Bond World 007 to discover more about the famous spy. Pause halfway at Birg for the Thrill Walk — a walkway projecting from the cliff face below. schilthorn.ch
Four nights for two in four-star Hotel Eiger, including a James Bond Brunch in the revolving Piz Gloria restaurant at the top of the Schilthorn, lift passes and either ski equipment hire (winter) or a Via Ferrata tour (summer), plus return flights and first-class Swiss rail transfers using the Swiss Travel System. hoteleiger.com
