A cruise on Lake Geneva

The largest lake in Europe – facing Mont Blanc, the highest summit in Europe – is on your doorstep! To sail on Lake Geneva is to be face-on to the Alps, following the vineyards along the shoreline, its castles and the Jura mountains, passing the fabulous Yvoire, a medieval town, or even skimming past Geneva’s Jet d’Eau fountain. In short, it is beautiful!
