Enjoying the great view at Lake Genf

Holidays by one of the many lakes or rivers in Switzerland are an amazing experience. Whether you drive along the banks of lakes and rivers or swim in their waters, there is always a real holiday feel attached to it.

There are over 1,500 lakes in Switzerland. The sophisticated shores of Lake Geneva will enchant you just as much as the tranquil mountain lakes in the Swiss Alps. At times during your hiking or cycling holidays, you can just dip into the cool waters and refresh yourself because the water quality is excellent throughout Switzerland.

Switzerland is therefore rightly called the moated castle of Europe. Some of the most famous rivers originate here; you can travel along these rivers on excellent cycle routes. Romantic beaches, lakeside promenades, well-maintained towpaths, dense reed belts and rich flora and fauna complete the magic of active tours on rivers and lakes.

Two bikers take a break with their feet dangling. The bikes are leaning against the railing of the footbridge, with the mountains faintly visible in the background.

Actively on the move in French-speaking Switzerland

Honestly, when you walk through the vineyards of the Lake Geneva region on the Alpine Panorama Route and let your gaze glide across the lake to the French Savoie, you almost feel like you're at the seaside. The size of Lac Leman is simply magnificent. Our service is also great, you enjoy the day's stages and your luggage is transported by us from hotel to hotel.

By the way, you will also pass by Lac Leman if you are cycling on the Rhône route. Then you are almost at your destination in Geneva. However, you started in the middle of the Valais mountains and in the headwaters of the Rhone.
