Following the Doubs: The Swiss Water Trail

France to one side and Switzerland to the other, with a river running through the middle: The Doubs. Its long, ruggedly picturesque valley is virtually uninhabited and being a nature reserve it is even more of a paradise for fishermen and hikers. The riverside path between Soubey and St. Ursanne opens up a truly original part of Switzerland. Through almost untouched riverscape, it runs past fish taverns and swimming areas.

15 kilometres of meditative hiking pleasure and one of Switzerland's most beautiful "water trails" run between Soubey and St-Ursanne.

Avenches & Payerne

The two little towns of Avenches and Payerne are set on the wide Broye Plain in the canton of Vaud, near its border with Fribourg. The gentle rolling hills between the Lakes of Murten and Neuchâtel, the vineyards and the nature reserves are ideal for walking and cycling. Avenches, formerly Aventicum, the capital of Roman Helvetia, boasts a unique heritage from Roman times. Payerne is the site of Switzerland's largest Romanesque church.

Lugano

Lugano – the largest town in the holiday region of Ticino, is not only Switzerland's third most important financial centre and a conference, banking and business centre, but also a town of parks and flowers, villas and sacred buildings. With Mediterranean flair, Lugano offers all the advantages of a world-class city, combined with the cachet of a small town. Thanks to its mild climate, Lugano is a popular tourist destination in the spring when the camellias are in bloom.
