FROM THE VINE TO THE GLACIER

In the heart of the Vaud Alps, discover our vast region which stretches from the Chablais plateau to the summit of the Diablerets glacier.

tart your visit at a depth of over 600 metres in the Bex salt mines. Continue with a dip in the Bains de Lavey, the hottest thermal spring in Switzerland. With your head above water, continue your journey through the vineyards of Bex and Ollon, which grow authentic wines, forged in a soil of unique character.

As you gain altitude, notice the increasingly typical chalets of Gryon, a village with a mountain atmosphere conducive to relaxation. At the bottom of the valley stands the famous Miroir d’Argentine (2325 m.), overlooking the site of Solalex, where mountain restaurants offer gastronomic or more traditional dishes. A site of unmissable hikes, the trails can be walked in summer as well as in winter.

Just a few kilometres away, in Villars, old ancestral chalets stand alongside recent wooden and stone buildings. Experience this modern resort which sits on a natural balcony facing south. The Grand Chamossaire, the summit of the commune, rises to 2120m and offers a grandiose panorama from Lake Geneva to Mont Blanc. In summer, take the Col de la Croix road, which winds through an alpine landscape with centuries-old traditions

such as the production of L’Etivaz, the regional cheese.

Cross the pass and head for the authentic village of Les Diablerets, nestled beneath an imposing mountain range. In Les Diablerets, legends and customs combine with the sporting pleasures and joys of the eternal snows thanks to its glacier culminating at an altitude of over 3000m.
