Nature & Excursions

Vevey lakeside and mountain area

In search of rejunevation, adventure or a shared moment with friends or family? The natural environment surrounding us is a trove of innate treasures!

From dawn to dusk, the breathtaking beauty of our region is yours to enjoy. Emotion at sunrise over the Rochers de Naye and the Dent-de-Jaman; inspiration at sunset behind the Jura mountain chain. To the south, looking across the Dents du Midi mountains, the Grammont ridge and the Cornettes de Bise peaks, the fabulous landscape is to be admired. To the north, the roundness of the Vaudoise Alps forms a soothing harmony. From the top of these peaks or from the magnificent vineyards of Lavaux, a plunging view over the stunning immensity of the lake. The whites, pinks, blues and purples of the sky. The lake, green, grey, azure. In more nuanced weather, the magic of Lake Geneva and the mountains remains! A source of inspiration for many painters and artists, our region will also reveal its splendour to you during your stay.

Let yourself be carried away by the beauty of our natural surroundings!

« I am at Vevey, an attractive small town, whitewashed, clean, English, comfortable, warmed by the southern slopes of Mount Chardonne (Mount Pèlerin) as if by a stove, and sheltered by the Alps as if by a screen. Before me there is a summer sky, the sun of the hills coveerd in ripe vines, and this magnificent emerald of Léman set in mountains covered with silverware snow.”

Victor Hugo, “Voyage en Suisse”
