Adventure Cities Trip Report – Switzerland

By September 27, 2021November 12th, 2021No Comments

The first two film shoots for Adventure Cities, an exciting new television series set to premiere on Outside TV in 2022, are officially a wrap. The crew spent eight magical days in Switzerland during the end of August and beginning of September, turning the lens on the surprising and adventurous cities of Geneva and Zürich.


First up was Geneva. Here, celebrated travel journalist and Adventure Cities host, Jonathan Thompson quickly discovered that Geneva is a destination in and of itself, and not just a stop on the way to go skiing in the Alps.

While in Geneva, Jonathan participated in a unique watch-making experience, visited the Victorinox Flagship Store, went rafting and hiking, and explored Lake Geneva in style via a luxury power boat.


Saying goodbye to Geneva, the crew then headed over to Zürich. So much more than a banking city, Zürich held surprise after surprise for the team.

Adventures included stand up paddle boarding, surfing, mountain biking, a trip to the Rhine Falls, castle touring, visiting the stunning and luxurious Thermalbad & Spa, and enjoying a decadent tuk-tuk fondue and wine tour.

Geneva and Zürich will be featured in two separate episodes of Adventure Cities, premiering in 2022. In the meantime, be sure to follow Jonathan’s social channels (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) for behind the scenes filming adventures.
