The Grand Tour of Switzerland
On the Grand Tour of Switzerland the journey is the goal. This route will lead you 1000 miles through four language regions, over five Alpine passes, to eleven UNESCO World Heritage Sites as well as two biospheres and along 22 lakes. This tour provides a concentrated insight into Switzerland, with exquisite scenic views and cultural jewels.
A drive along the blissfully calm, peaceful and remote roads on this route between Lake Geneva and Lac de Joux reveals the hidden gems of the Jura. The road that rises from Vich leads through the romantic wine village of Begnins and on to St George. At Col du Marchairuz, the sweeping view of Vaud, Lake Geneva and the Alps reaches all the way to mighty Mont Blanc. Then it’s time to flick off the music and wind down the window for soul-soothing scenery on the gentle descent through sun-dappled forests and green meadows. The watchmaking Vallée du Joux keeps track of time, while Lac du Joux is inviting for a refreshing dip.
