Overlooked by the Alps, crescent-shaped Lake Geneva is shared between France and Switzerland, and the towns and cities that reside on the lake’s shores are influenced by each country’s culture and cuisine. From your base in the majestic alpine village of Villars-sur-Ollon, discover the region’s gems on this superb itinerary - gems that fall under many guises, yet all are highlights. Visit a museum dedicated to Charlie Chaplin; take a boat cruise on the lake itself to the fairytale fortress of Chillon Castle; taste many culinary delights including local family-made wines, cheeses (including the famous Gruyère), charcuterie and Maison Cailler chocolate; take a cable car to the summit station Glacier 3000 to see if you’re brave enough to walk on a suspension bridge that connects two mountain peaks; and visit the fascinating 15th century salt mines of Bex. All this, while you marvel at the scenery of the Swiss Riviera from Lausanne to Montreux, lakes, mountains, dairy farms, alpine pastureland, and the spectacular Regional Park Gruyère Pays-d’Enhaut.
