Self-guided Cycling Tour Lake Geneva to Lake Zurich

The Lakes-Route is a deserving name, because many lakes touch the Route from its beginning at the Lake Geneva to its goal at the Lake Zurich. The Route leads through some of the outstanding touristic regions with great sounding names: Montreux, Gruyères, Gstaad, Interlaken, Lucerne, Einsiedeln and Rapperswil...

Whoever completes the Lakes Route, has seen the most beautiful corners of Switzerland.

Tour Character: Level 2

Along the totally 16 lakes between Montreux and Horn the route is of course smooth and flat – but between the lakes there are some minor passes to cross: Less athletic cyclists are recommended to use an electric bike which is well suited for this route. Athletic cyclists use the touring bikes.

  • Day 1

    Arrival in Montreux

    Stroll along the promenade and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Lake Geneva and the snow white glaciers of the nearby Mont-Blanc massif.

  • Day 2

    Montreux –Gruyère and surroundings, approx. 40 – 50 km

    From Vevey, take the rack railway up to the Mont-Pèlerin. Tranquil roads lead you to the source of the most popular cheese of Switzerland: the Gruyère, which shares its name with the landscape. A recent symphony of green melancholy, cowbells and customs.

  • Day 3

    Gruyère and surroundings – Gstaad and surroundings, approx. 45 – 55 km

    Postcard country Switzerland: cheeseries, chalets, snowy mountains, cable cars and papercutting. Away from the idyll, the Pays d͛Enhaut and the Saaneneland is a magnificent landscape, enhanced by the haze over the lower reaches and happy mountain goers enjoying the environment.

  • Day 4

    Gstaad and surroundings – Lake Thun approx. 50 km

    The artistically decorated wooden houses of the Simmental belong to the most beautiful of Europe. The Simme remains a wild river that demands a lot from dinghy riders. And Spiez, a water sports paradies on the cheerful lake Thun.

  • Day 5

    Lake Thun – Lake Sarnen, approx. 50 – 55 km

    A boat ride from Spiez to Interlaken in the morning. On the shore of Lake Brienz there is a steep rise to get to Meiringen where you take the train across the Brünigpass. You reach Obwalden: a small Canton, a big Valley, a pre-alpine landscape with scattered villages, flat lakes and long traditions.

  • Day 6

    Lake Sarnen – Lucerne approx. 35 km

    As soon as you get a glimpse of the Lake Lucerne the Pilatus is in your path. Bay after bay right to Lucerne, a fixed point for every tourist.
