On the summer days so nice to get lost among the vineyards. Choose small paths, sit comfortably on the terrace and enjoy the beautiful sunset view. Amazing for couples, families and even solo walking. A lots of small villages, wine cellars and very welcome citizens....More

It's unbelievably picturesque. You get multiple natural scenes in one gigantic image. The lake, the snow capped mountains in the distance. Fall colors mixed with the calm blue lake, morning mist rising with the back drop of the Alps was like heaven.

Stroll through the vineyards on a summer day with the lake below and the snow capped mountains in the distance. One of the most gratifying things you can do.

This was top of our agenda to visit in Lutry and we were not disappointed with the views! We found navigating the vineyards tricky even with "follow the yellow man" and follow the "yellow arrows". They were here and there but there were many junctions...More

We were invited by friends in early September and it truly was the most magnificent time to go. Great walking spot and good wine to taste along the way. The views are stunning so don't forget your camera!

We took the train to Lutry and just walked to the next train stop before training back to Lausanne. I loved walking though the vineyards and seeing all the vines - some young and old and many with grapes (white and red). It was amazing...More

It represents 36 km in total. However, this is pretty easy to do only one part. From our side, we did Chardonne to Pully. So around 10 km and 350 meters height. We started from Chardonne and then came back by train from Pully (around...More

If you stick to the main pathways then it should be fine. Make sure it is not one of those 30 degree plus day.

Which Time Frame Is Better (2 Replies)
Hi there, We will be traveling to Switzerland in October, 2015. There are two reasons why we choose this time of the year: (1) crispy sunny sky; (2) fall foliage. I have two time frames in mind: (1) Oct 9 to Oct 20; (2) Oct 14 to Oct 25. Places to be visited in order (tentative plan): Milan, Italy (2 days); Lake Como, Italy & Ticino, Switzerland (3 days); Montreux and Lavaux Vineyard Terraces (2 days); Bernese Oberland (3 days); Lucerne (1 day); Milan, Italy (1 day) for flight back...More

Basel guided tour of Alps (2 Replies)
I am taking a river cruise which ends in Basel on 4/20/2018. I would like to go on a three or four day tour of the Alps after the cruise. My wife and I do not want to drive ourselves on roads that are very narrow and winding but we could use a car for easier roads. We would like a tour group. Some of the places we are interested in is Zermatt, Geneva, Matterhorn Cogwheel train to the summit of Gornergat, wine tasting at the Lavaux Vineyard Terraces, We probably want to end up in Geneva.
