Pure, idyllic alps

The Lakes-Route deserves its name, because many lakes touch the Route from its beginning at the Lake Geneva to its goal at the Lake Thun. The Route leads through some of the outstanding touristic regions with great sounding names: Montreux, Gruyères, Gstaad and Spiez…

Whoever rides the Lakes-Route, has seen the most beautiful corners of Switzerland.

Itinerary

Stroll along the promenade and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Lake Genevaand the snow white glaciers of the nearby Mont-Blanc massif.

From Vevey, take the rack railway up to the Mont-Pèlerin. Tranquil roads lead you to the source of the most popular cheese of Switzerland: the Gruyère, which shares its name with the landscape. A recent symphony of green melancholy, cowbells and customs.

approx. 40 – 50 km

Postcard country Switzerland: cheeseries, chalets, snowy mountains, cable cars, hotel scent and papercutting. Away from the idyll, the Pays d’Enhaut and the Saaneneland are a magnificent landscape, animated by the haze of celebrity and happy mountain goers.

approx. 40 – 50 km

The artfully decorated wooden houses of the Simmental belong to the most beautiful of Europe. The Simme remains a wild river that demands a lot from dinghy riders. And Spiez, a water sports paradies on the cheerful lake Thun. After arrival in Thun individual departure.

approx. 50 km

Characteristic

Along the many lakes the route is of course smooth and flat – but between the lakes there are some minor passes to cross: Less athletic cyclists are recommended to use an electric bike which is well suited for this route.

Athletic cyclists use the touring bikes.
