Summer holidays by the Swiss lakes
Summer by the lake ... a fabulous experience. When the sun shines, the water sparkles and makes for a wonderful setting in which to relax and count your blessings to find yourself in such a scenic spot. The lake resorts tend to enjoy hotter weather than the mountains during the summer months, allowing for plenty of outdoor activities - stroll along the promenade, take a longer walk on a lakeside trail or swim in the waters at one of the lidos. We highly recommend you take a cruise on the lake. The restored paddle steamers and modern tourist boats make their way slowly up and down the lakes, allowing you to hop off and explore a number of charming villages. If you choose to stay on board, you can enjoy a fine lunch in the dining room or have a snack while you sit back on the viewing benches and watch the glorious scenery glide by.
Where to stay: Interlaken, Bönigen, Spiez, Lucerne, Weggis, Brunnen, Montreux, Vevey, Ascona, Locarno, Lugano
