Sonja Holverson, Local Expert, recommends trying to get an itinerary that includes the use of the one of the old paddle steamers. It's an extraordinary experience and there are many cruises to take especially during summer.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Sonja Holverson says that this is the best way to see the Lake Geneva region especially if you want to relax and become part of another rhythm. You can cruise around the Geneva shores and see the magnificent mansions and charming villages or take a boat to Yvoire, France, a medieval intact village full of flowers and quaint buildings, lunch, look at the gardens and boutiques and then cruise back. (late spring and summer)
- The Swiss Boat company specializes in various kinds of cruises and tours on Lake Geneva and tourists can pick whatever strikes their fancy. The Cruise on the Rhône is nature oriented and ideal if you're interested in bird life, while the Castle Cruise gives you a fascinating insight of the region's culture and architecture. Climb aboard an eco-friendly boat for the Parks and Famous Residences cruise and the Cruise of the Mermaid will take you on a rediscovery of Geneva's major landmarks as seen from the lake.
