The weather is good, so there’s no excuse not to go out and get some fresh air. Even more so as the canton of Vaud offers a multitude of walks of any duration and for all levels and ages. How wonderful to be in a canton offering plains and mountains, lakes and vineyards! The scenic walks could almost make you dizzy because the views are so breathtaking. On each route, you will be able to enjoy sights all along the way. Flower-decked lakeside proms, Roman ruins, gorges and lakes... all this while recharging your batteries in the heart of the cities or in contact with nature.

Plus, we have prepared several oenotouristic walks for you in the six Vaudois wine regions.
