Pure, idyllic alps over 5 days cycling

The Lakes-Route deserves its name, because many lakes touch the route from its beginning at Lake Geneva to its goal at Lake Lucerne. The Route leads through some outstanding touristic regions with great sounding names: Montreux, Gruyères, Gstaad, Interlaken and Lucerne… Whoever completes the Lakes-Route, has seen the most beautiful corners of Switzerland.

Tour Character: Level 3

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 to Vevey | Vevey – Gruyères/Surroundings

    Luggage drop-off in Vevey. From Vevey, take the rack railway up to the Mont-Pèlerin. Quiet roads lead you to the source of the most popular cheese of Switzerland: the Gruyère, which shares its name with the region. A new landscape with green meadows, cowbells and local traditions presents itself.

    approx. 40 – 50 km 600 – 855 m 500 – 735 m

  • Day 2

    Gruyères/Surroundings – Gstaad/Surroundings

    Postcard Switzerland: cheese dairies, chalets, snow-covered mountains, cable cars and their well-known regional papercuts. Away from the idyll, the Pays d’Enhaut and the Saaneneland are a magnificent landscape, animated by the haze of celebrity and happy mountain goers.

    approx. 40 km 735 m 410 m

  • Day 3

    Gstaad/Surroundings – Spiez

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

    approx. 55 km 740 m 1'150 m

  • Day 4

    Spiez – Lake Sarnen

    A boat ride from Spiez to Interlaken in the morning. On the shore of Lake Brienz there is a steep ascent to Meiringen to be completed where you can 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.

    approx. 60 km 1'145 m 1'200 m

  • Day 5

    Lake Sarnen – Lucerne | Departure or extension As soon as you get a glimpse of the Lake of Lucerne, the Pilatus is in your path. Bay after bay right to Lucerne, a fixed point for every tourist. After arriving in Lucerne, luggage pick-up and individual departure.
