Found along the southern shore of Lake Brienz, Iseltwald is a small, beautiful village with only about 400 residents. It’s not a center of tourism, especially when compared to nearby Grindelwald and Interlaken, but it’s a popular stop for skiers and backpackers in the Jungfraujoch region of Switzerland. Iseltwald is the perfect getaway for some rest and recreation — under normal circumstances.

However, Switzerland took some heavy hits during the COVID-19 outbreak in Europe. As a result, real-world travel to Iseltwald may remain a future dream for a while, but that doesn't mean you can't experience Iseltwald’s majestic mountains, turquoise lakes and peaceful village atmosphere through a virtual vacation. The best part is you don’t even have to leave your couch. Join us as we explore Switzerland’s hidden gem!
