A white paradise
Winter is obviously the ideal season for a stay in the Swiss Alps. The region’s slopes have something for all levels – be they good skiers or beginners.
The interconnected ski areas of Villars-Gryon and Les Diablerets as well as the tracks of Glacier 3000 offer a paradise for skiers of all levels. The snow gardens in all three destinations allow children to learn skiing in a fun way, while leaving their parents some time to spend on their own.
Other winter disciplines are available such as cross-country skiing, sled dog races and, above all, sledding on a dedicated 4-mile track.
Splendid mountain landscapes
The Swiss mountain chains are some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. The Vaudois Alps offer many opportunities to admire them.
An excursion to Glacier 3000 - the culminating point of the canton of Vaud - will be one of the best memories to take home. This resort offers countless leisure activities and reveals a unique panoramic view of the Alps.
In the villages, there are several activities in the middle of nature such as mountain biking or treetop adventure parks, while Mother Nature's marvels in the La Thomasia Alpine botanical garden, the Dar cascade, Rocher Jaune as well as many other attractions enthral visitors.
Relax and enjoy
The air of the Alps is conducive to devoting a little time to yourself, to relaxing and having fun.
Nothing beats finishing a day of skiing or prolonging a summer evening in relaxing thermal waters before sitting down to a good dinner! The region cultivates this art of living in the spas of Lavey-les-Bains and Villars.
Good food is always on the menu, prepared by talented Chefs, whose recipes based on terroir products are a delight with the wines from the Chablais AOC region. The vines yield wines of quality, mainly Chasselas, a dry white wine variety.
The history of the Alps
The Alps will always remain a land to be conquered by humans looking for a challenge. Cultural sites tell the story of such conquests.
