Starting point of this shoreline hike is the park-like waterfront promenade in Lausanne-Ouchy. The somewhat inconspicuous hiking signs point the way towards Morges. Passing the huge lido you make your way to Vidy – and thereafter, continuing on the shoreline path, on to Dorigny followed by the fashionable town of St-Sulpice. A hiking path passing a great many bathing spots, and shortly before Morges the way leads to a more than 1 kilometer long beach where thousands gather in summer to take a refreshing swim. Marching into Morges you are flanked by beautiful flowerbeds and manicured gardens – and as the tour slowly comes to an end a stroll through the heart of the old town concludes a delightful excursion and healthy breath of fresh air in the nicest of ways.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it.
