Montreux - Villeneuve - Le Bouveret


Montreux Riviera

Montreux Riviera

Walkers enjoy magnificent views of Lake Geneva throughout this hike over flat terrain to Le Bouveret. Starting from the flower-lined promenade, walkers pass Chillon Castle to reach Villeneuve. Then they cross the Rhone delta, a nature conservation area of national importance, which offers a striking contrast to the densely populated hillsides.
