Why not savour a taste of the culinary specialities of the Montreux-Vevey region as well as the sights? On commencing the excursion in Vevey, climb aboard the train direction Pléiades and enjoy a cheese slice as a first if you like. The hike to follow leads along the Pleiades ridge to the Lac-des Joncs lake, where you can now appease physical effort with small cold meats and cheese platter. Last leg of this tasteful hike is the downhill descent to Les Paccots, where a delicious meringue with whipped cream further sweetens a day well spent.

Salt Mines – History of White Gold

Salt belongs on the table, whether in its natural form or with added herbs. A visit to these mines, which stretch over 50 km through tunnels, shafts and gigantic caves, starts off on a train and then continues on foot. An experience not to be missed!

For centuries the ownership of salt mines meant wealth and power. The salt deposits at Bex, discovered in the 15th century, are still mined today. The salt mines are accessible to visitors, a museum depicts the mining of salt from 1684 to the present.

Favarger chocolate

This delicate, high-quality chocolate is a world-famous Geneva speciality. The company, founded in 1826, was initially located on the Pont de l’Ile (in order to use the waters of the Rhone to drive the machinery), but in 1875 it moved to Versoix. Specialities include "Avelines", "Nougalines de Genève" and chocolate fondue.
