There are countries outside Europe where the Swiss will travel in July and August. Advise our activity for a dream vacation.

We published last week An article on Swiss favorite destination 2022 for summer vacation. It targets short-distance travel. What you are reading now is dedicated to long distance flights. To achieve this, we have synthesized information (search and storage) provided by HotelPlan, Twi, Cuoni, Booking.com and Ebookers.

The 2022 summer trends are influenced by the Covid-19 tackle measures that prevent or prevent Foreigners can go to different countries in Asia. They are also affected by the war in Ukraine and retaliatory measures (sanctions on the skies) against the Russian invaders. This explains why so many Swiss go to North America in July and August, and especially to the United States.

As for the major absentees, it should be noted that Mauritius, Thailand and Dubai are no longer among the top choices of the Swiss, although many of them went there before the epidemic.

For those who want to vacation in North America, Canada is an alternative to the United States. The Swiss appreciate this nature destination: wildlife observation (cetaceans, plantigrades) and wild landscapes. The country is ideal for a road trip… or rather a road trip (an expression suggested by French-speaking Canadians). Before the country, travelers will appreciate Niagara Falls and the big cities (Montreal, Quebec). To the west, they rolled from the Rockies into the Pacific Ocean.

Activity to try Visit the National Park. Montreal: Picnic at Belvedere in Mount Royal Park. Vancouver: Take a water taxi to Granville Island to get to the market.

During the epidemic, Tanzania is one of the few holiday destinations where tourists are welcomed. Clients constantly flock to the beaches of Zanzibar Island which, in themselves, act as a postcard for this African country. On the mainland, however, travelers prefer a safari in a background of Kilimanjaro.

Activity to try Zanzibar: Visit Changu, also known as Jail Island, and have lunch in the sand. Arusha: Travel to Nogorongoro Crater and of course at the foot of Kilimanjaro.

Exoticism in the Dominican Republic

Panta Kana is a seaside resort that attracts the most vacationers. The Swiss also like it. Like Zanzibar, tourists flocked to the Dominican Republic during the health crisis. All-inclusive resorts delight families and customers who want to relax. The mild climate and the beauty of nature make the Caribbean state one of the most popular destinations. The government is heavily dependent on public tourism.

Activity to try Panta Kana: Island Catamaran Gateway. Go to Lemon Falls.

Maldives: Heaven on Earth

The Swiss are loyal to the Maldives. The destination mainly attracts newlyweds who spend their honeymoon there. These islands in the Indian Ocean symbolize heaven on earth for many westerners: azure lagoons, white sand, palm trees and bungalows. The beach is enough as a selling point not to try to diversify the country’s tourism offer. During the epidemic, the Swiss continued to go there.

Testing activities: Snorkeling and scuba diving. Cocktail workshop at the hotel. Laziness.
