Starting in the German-speaking cantons of Lucerne, on the shores of Lake Lucerne, we begin our journey across Switzerland, passing through many quaint Medieval town centers. We’ll pass through the cantons of Lucerne, Oberwald, Berner Oberland, and Bern as we continue through the valley and lake regions surrounded by Switzerland’s majestic “Alps”. Our two night stay in the small but bustling capital city of Bern, still has many activities waiting for us. We’ll then continue on and get absorbed into the French-speaking cantons of Fribourg and Vaud and… voilá, begin speaking French. After an overnight in the Quaint castle village of Guyrères, famous for her cheese, we’ll head over the hills of Jorat, overlooking the entire Lake Léman (Lake Geneva) backdropped by the snowcapped Alps, and finish our journey with a spectacular descent through the beautiful Unesco protected wine terraces of Lavaux, straight down to the lively lakeside town of Morges.

The tour passes through eight of Switzerland’s 26 cantons and provides you with unmatched natural beauty, insight into the political and historical foundations, and an up close and authentic experience of Swiss contemporary culture. Because most of this tour is on bicycle paths or designated bike routes, we are not only utilizing, but also contributing to the sustainability of the Swiss philosophy of human-powered travel. We are excited to be guest/hosts in this beautiful country as ambassadors to help promote this.

Optional Single Supplement

If you are traveling alone, this optional single supplement will guarantee you a room to yourself at each hotel. The cost of a single room is often more than half the price of a shared room, so this additional supplement reflects that increased cost for each night over the course of the trip.
