June 2018 5992

Lake Geneva, with its clean water and view of snow-coated Alps, offers a lot of visual delights and fun activities. Visitors can enjoy a romantic ride for two on a pedalo, kayaking, stand up paddles, water-bikes or hire a boat for an exhilarating sightseeing experience with friends or family. Those seeking a more relaxing vibe can lounge or sunbathe on the deck, snooze under the parasol, take a swim on the largest body of freshwater in western Europe.

With summer approaching fast, the beach is the ideal destination for most guests. Equipped with a range of amenities, family and friends can enjoy a range of entertainment from artistic to adventurous, guaranteeing a great and distinct experience for everyone. The beach also features a variety of gastronomic delights to indulge in offering fresh caught fillets of perch, fera, pike and char, fresh quality food that the lake can offer. Among the trendiest summer bars are ‘La Jetée de de la Compagnie’ and ‘Minimum’ which are home to unique dynamics of cocktails and beverages.

Lake Geneva is also home to international water-sport competitions, like the ‘Lake Geneva five-day race’ representing Europe’s longest lake-bound endurance race, which is held during the month of August, followed by Translémanique, a solo race across Lake Geneva, staged three weeks later. Another annual event on Lake Geneva is the world’s longest rowing contest of 160 km which is organised by the Société Nautique de Genève.

Visitors can also cycle around Lake Geneva in the Cyclotour du Léman (180 km), for casual, family-friendly rider to high profile races for expert bikers.
