Switzerland is an incredibly expensive place to holiday in, whether you’re skiing, hiking, or just satisfying a craving for authentic Swiss fondue.

Don’t go, they said. It’s not worth it - nothing is open, they said. Visits to the Swiss Alps in November are unanimously ill-advised thanks to a combination of heaps of snow and the Swiss authorities choosing this month to carry out repair works on ski-lifts, which go to the next-level (pun intended) hiking trails.
