Lavaux Vineyard Terraces: The Swiss Wine Route

A three hour hike on the Vineyard Trail from St. Saphorin to Lutry is filled with temptations. Terrace after terrace offers fabulous views over Lake Geneva. While local delicacies beckon from the pubs, the winegrowers keep their cellar doors wide open for you to get a taste of the landscape. The Lavaux wine region is so spectacular that it has been a Unesco World Heritage Site since 2007.

From St. Saphorin in a diverse route going uphill and downhill through the vines to Lutry. Indeed, it is on the Lavaux Vineyard Terraces where bon vivants get into top gear.

The Irrigation Channels of Nendaz : The Historic Water Trail

Scorched by the sun and difficult to access, the steep Valais hillsides are often watered using the so-called "suonen", or irrigation channels. Dug into the ground, hanging from rocks or carved from them, they are a constant reminder of the farmers' struggle against drought. Today, picturesque hiking trails follow these historic water channels.

A wonderful waterworld: 100 kilometres of hiking trails run through the sun-drenched Nendaz region along these historic irrigation channels.
