Top nature activities and outdoor recreation in the canton of Vaud

The fabulous vistas of the canton of Vaud open up to you during a hike, a visit or a sports challenge. So, come on, let’s go out!

Take a seat in the comfortable MOB train departing from Montreux and climbing up the mountains above Lake Geneva. Watch it disappear between the vineyards and the fir trees and stop at Rochers-de-Naye an hour later. This spectacular peak area abounds with activities for the whole family. Above all, it offers one of the most beautiful panoramas.
In the silence of these gems of nature, admire the meandering caves of Vallorbe, the native species at the Garenne animal park or the discreet birds of Grande Cariçaie, Switzerland’s largest wetlands located near Yverdon-les-Bains.
Be bold and cross a suspension bridge between two summits at Glacier 3000. Once you’ve taken a few steps, you'll feel like you're flying in the invigorating air of the Alps. Accessible by cablecar from Col du Pillon, this all-year destination boasts eternal snow.
Take up the challenge and surpass yourself, by bike or on foot, on one of the canton’s many marked trails. The Tour of the Vaudois Alps is highly popular with daredevil bikers. It offers three different climbs over several days as well as spectacular views.
All these activities and many others await you to have you spend unforgettable moments in the heart of Vaudois nature.
