Travel from Zurich:
From Zurich, I’d highly suggest jumping on a train for at least a couple of days in Interlaken, the adventure capital of Europe, and maybe of the world. In Interlaken, Switzerland, choose from hundreds of extreme activites, or just casual adventures including Canyoning, Zorbing, Bungee Jumping, Canyon Jumping, Sky Diving, Biking, Hiking, and more.
Be aware, though Interlaken offers some of the most scenic sky diving that you will find anywhere, it is also one of the most expensive places to do it. Maybe consider throwing yourself out of a plane at 20,000 feet in the air at another location..
For casual accomodations in Interlaken, I’d highly suggest either The Funny Farm or Balmer’s Hotel. I’ve spent a number of hours at both of these places.
