An abundance of activities for a dream of a winter

Forever faithful snow has covered mountains and forests and sometimes even the plain. The beauty of this thick white coat and the calm emanating from it transports us into a magical world full of fun and games. The Lake Geneva Region offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy snow to the full.

For the Christmas season, garlands and lights enhance the cities and villages of the canton of Vaud, creating a fairy-tale atmosphere that lasts well beyond Christmas. Various winter activities have been created to offer a true change of scenery and out-of-time moments. You’ll feel as if you were at the North Pole when sitting on a dog-pulled sled. Magnificent cross-country skiing or snowshoeing trails take you through snow-laden fir tree forests. Want to put on your new ice skates? Natural ice rinks and frozen lakes are ideal to try them out. Or perhaps you dream of mythical ascents? Rise higher by putting on your hiking skis or climbing aboard a hot-air balloon. To get you closer to the stars, there’s nothing like a night-time activity – skiing, sledding and more.
