Most parts of Switzerland can be reached in a day trip from Zurich. It will depend on what type of outdoor activity you prefer and the time of year. Travel on the excellent railway system is easy. You will need to decide whether a rail pass ( Swiss Pass etc ) is more economical than a couple of day return tickets. This will vary according to the free time available and how much of the country individuals want to explore.
