Discover the beautified mountainside of the Lavaux Vineyard Terraces on a fulfilling half day walking tour.

Lavaux lies in the southwestern canton of Vaud in Switzerland, decorated in vast hectares of vineyards. The exciting cultural landscape is a showpiece of natural beauty, which in 2007 was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The vineyards stretch for approximately 30 kilometers along the great Lake Geneva, with rocky mountain peaks topped with snow guarding the opposite side of Lake Geneva.

Because the vineyards face to the south, sloping towards the lake, the sun’s reflection gives the vineyard terraces a mild, Mediterranean feel.

The walking tour is an exciting and easy way to discover some of the best sceneries of natural beauty. And along the way, learn about the geographical history of the great Lake Geneva, as well as how it has influenced the history of winemaking.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the stunning Swiss region of Lavaux, where the hillside vineyards stretch beyond the eye around the beautiful Lake Geneva.

About the Guide

 
 

I have hiked throughout the Alps and most of Europe for the last thirty years. This has been such a pleasure for me that I want to share this with you. Today, owing to a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Sports and Nutrition, I organise and lead hikes, specifically aimed at enhancing your well-being through the natural movement of walking.

The peace and quiet available when hiking outdoors adds to the physical benefits of walking at your own rythm, while learning about the environment is an added joy and motivation.

To be able to get the most from hiking in nature, one must know: flora, fauna, geology, nutrition and by sharing this knowledge, you will be able to "read" your environment and to better know your own capacity in order to take full advantage of our hikes.
