Nestling in the warm shores of Lake Geneva, it’s no wonder that Lausanne is a paradise for tourists who are looking for invigorating adventures. From sailing to windsurfing, the internationally-renowned Olympic Capital creates a bespoke sporting holiday where visitors can combine the best of each activity.
An exceptional natural landscape, Lake Geneva is known as the largest freshwater lake in Europe. Its pristine waters boast a haven for watersport aficionados as the sunny weather sets in, bringing in light to moderate breezes. During this month, water sports clubs are offering introductory courses for beginners on water activities such as wakeboarding, windsurfing and stand up paddling where a team of professionals specially trained in each practice will be guiding you. Kayaks, pedalos and rowing boats are available for couples while motorboats are available for groups of travellers looking to enjoy the waters. Be mesmerized during sunsets at Lake Geneva as the vibrant city of Lausanne, the Alps and the greeneries gleams through the crystal-clear waters.
Another site to experience is Ouchy, Lausanne’s famous port and lakefront. The flower-bedecked quays of the port are a favourite for those seeking to relax and enjoy some fresh air. During Sundays, the area is teeming with walkers, cyclists and skaters traversing the promenade, Bellerive swimming pool and the renowned Olympic Museum.
Walter Loser, Lausanne Tourisme’s Project Manager for the GCC market said, “Lausanne is an idyllic destination during the summer season as it not only offers a diverse cultural experience, but also brings tourists closer to the biggest lake in Europe. Lake Geneva is a view that truly captivates the eye, being an inspiration to various artists, a regular venue for people to cool down and a hit scene for adventure-seekers.”
