First thing's first - I've done the research. Wild camping is loosely prohibited, depending on canton, altitude, camouflage, etc. Legality aside, I'm looking for a place to pitch a tent and relax in nature for a couple nights with my OH. Some simple no/low-impact no-trace-behind camping.
Speaking of the OH, this is primarily for her sake. She sent me the image below a few months back and said, "I want this for my birthday." Well, her wish, my command. But I'm really struggling to find any resources on spots like this.
But ideally, what I'm after is a long, steep drive up a seldom frequented road, and finding a pitch of grass with an alpine view. Some kind of lake or river nearby (within a 30-min drive) would also be a huge bonus.
I would also be happy to pay a nominal fee for camping on someone's land, should you have any particular parcel in mind.
Regarding campsites, this would be fine, given that it has views and some degree of privacy, the latter of which I find a rarity in Switzerland, if not the whole of Europe.
And, ideally, now that I've made you a think I'm a creature of no comforts, I'd like to be able to have our car easily accessible so we don't have to pack everything into a backpack.
Oh, right, and we plan to bring our dog with us.
Help me out, EF!
