Dear readers,

I wanted to share with you my last hiking day trip in Lavaux! Lavaux is the largest continuous vineyard region in Switzerland. It is built on terraces dropping down onto the shores of the Leman Lake. This region offers breathtaking views of the lake, the mountains and of course the gorgeous vineyards. It has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2007.

The best place to start is St-Saphorin, which can be reached either by car or train ( website here timings and instructions below) super easily. Once there, follow the yellow signs (see pic below) up and walk to Lutry. You can do as much, or as little as you want. It really depends on you and how much you are willing to take the adventure further.

We walked for about 3 hours (there and back) from St-Saphorin. However, you can take the train to St-Saphorin, then walk to Lutry and take the train back to Geneva. It is all up to you!

It is worth it to walk until Dezaley, the view is unforgettable!

Autumn is the best period to go, so do not miss the upcoming weekends to do so 🙂

Enjoy the pictures!
