2. Go rafting on the Rhine River
The Rhine River is a popular destination for rafting in Switzerland. One of the reasons it is so popular is because of the many magnificent castles along the river. These castles have been in existence for centuries and have been used as fortresses during various historical periods of history, which makes them ideal places to visit when you are on a rafting tour. The river is very enjoyable with its clear blue water and peaceful scenery, so if you want to take a day trip from Geneva to Lake Geneva or from Zurich to Lake Zurich then why not check out this adventure?

3. Go ice skating on Lake Geneva
Lake Geneva has some of the clearest water in Europe with an average depth of 29 feet. This is why it is great for ice skating, as you can always see where you are going by looking just above or just below the surface of the water. Not only is it possible to go ice skating on Lake Geneva but it is also possible to do so along the side of the entire lake. If you want an adventure that will test your skill and strength then this activity could be perfect for you.
