Cyclotour du Léman traverses some of the most interesting terrain that Switzerland and France has to offer. From the gorgeous rolling hills of the Lavaux wine region, to one of Europe's most visited castles. And what better way to see it all than by bike?
Although generally mountainous, Switzerland also has many hilly regions, which are ideal for planting vineyards, with the area in the south-west especially, around Lake Geneva, the perfect climate for grapes to strive. Covering roughly 800 hectares, Lavaux is the largest contiguous vineyard area in the country, and its terraces have been protected by UNESCO since 2007. The product of these vineyards is equally protected – so much so, you won’t be able to taste the amazing wine produced in Lavaux elsewhere.
For more than a century, Lausanne has been home to the International Olympic Committee, inspiring dozens of organizations overseeing sports as different as baseball and taekwondo to put down roots, too.
Chillon Castle is an island castle located on Lake Geneva, south of Veytaux in the canton of Vaud. It is situated at the eastern end of the lake, on the narrow shore between Montreux and Villeneuve, which gives access to the Alpine valley of the Rhône. Chillon is amongst the most visited castles in Switzerland and Europe. It now belongs to the State of Vaud and is classified as a Swiss Cultural Property of National Significance.
500 litres of water per second are jetted to an altitude of 140 metres by two pumps, operating at 2,400 V, consuming one megawatt of electricity. The water leaves the nozzle at a speed of 200 kilometres per hour . At any given moment, there are about 7,000 litres of water in the air. Unsuspecting visitors to the fountain—which can be reached via a stone jetty from the left bank of the lake—may be surprised to find themselves drenched after a slight change in wind direction.
Evian is world famous as a spa town and for its Evian mineral water. With the passage on the edge of Lake Geneva and a view of the Lavaux, this first visit to France brings pleasure and beauty in a magnificent setting.
The Mont Blanc bridge is named after the famous mountain in the French Alps. It is pleasant to walk around and across the bridge, where there are many restaurants to explore. You can also catch a good view of the water spout rising 120ft on the Geneva lake. The view of the lake and the mountains from the bridge is amazing.
