Thanks for your rating

The main resorts, Villars, Les Diablerets, Leysin and Château-d’Oex, are reached in no time at all thanks to smooth-running public transport and some most spectacular and scenic train rides: On the one hand along Lake Geneva, and from Aigle and Bex with narrow gauge railways (in part cog), or through the Goldenpass panorama stretch between Montreux and Gstaad.

Summer

A vacation in the Vaud Alps region pledges loads of palatable enjoyment: vineyards and cellars, Alpine cheese-making (e.g. l’Etivaz AOC) as well as paper-cutting arts, the salt mines of Bex, Lavey-les-Bains thermal springs, quaint mountain villages, fantastic mountain lakes, impressive panoramas (from the Le Kuklos revolving restaurant for example), deep canyons, over 500 kilometres of beautiful hiking paths and at least 150 km of mountain bike routes.

Highlights

  • Tobogganing Park in Leysin: guaranteed, fun, thrills and laughs and unforgettable experience on one of Europe’s longest snow-tube facilities.
  • L’Etivaz AOC cheese: buckets full of cheese produced in traditional fashion over an open fire in the mountain huts of Pays-d’Enhaut!
  • Regional Gruyère Pays-d’Enhaut natural park: Pre-Alps shaped region, distinguished through its lively Alpine hospitality, stunning landscapes and natural beauty.
  • Les Diablerets with Glacier 3000: Highest point of the Waadtländer Alps, boasting stupendous panoramic views, highest-lying summer toboggan run and non-stop snow fun year round.
