Dear youcef

Fresh Alpine air; a sparkling snow-covered landscape; a morning of skiing, snowboarding or sledging followed by traditional Swiss cuisine served on the sunny terrace of a mountain restaurant: these are just some of the pleasures of our natural Swiss winter.

You can enjoy these experiences in the charming Lake Geneva Region, among many others. The canton of Vaud is home to our winter expert Silvio Giobellina, and he has some special insider tips for you.

Come and discover the original Swiss winter!
