Cycling: Lake Geneva

Castle tour on Lake Geneva

Lake Geneva is one of the most beautiful waters in Switzerland. Starting from the international small city of Geneva, you will sail along the lake shore. You will discover cosy lidos, seemingly endless vineyards and the charming stage towns of Montreux, Lausanne and Morges.

This region has a lot to offer. The short stages allow you to enjoy a relaxing ride and days with wonderful views along the shores of Lake Geneva.
