Would've appreciated to know that the travel day pass allows for this travel in part and not have had to pay the full amount unnecessarily

From Lausanne Ouchy, sail away on a paddle steamer for a relaxing 3-hour circular cruise. On your left, you will see the most beautiful part of Lake Geneva, including the spectacular Lavaux Vineyards. This UNESCO region forms Switzerland's largest contiguous vineyard area. Continue onwards to see both the Swiss and French Alps. On your way to Chillon Castle, soak in the unique views of the region. The boat will also make stops in Vevey and Montreux, better known as the “Pearls of the Swiss Riviera.” For lunch, you are welcome to dine onboard (make sure to book your table in advance) before you head back to Lausanne.


  • Wheelchair access is usually possible but it depends on how busy the boat is and its size. Toilets for disabled people are available on all our boats except the "Col-Vert" and the "Général-Guisan."
  • The boat is stroller accessible.
