Lake Geneva and Western Switzerland
Car Tours, Train Rides, and Walks
Sunflower Books

4" x 8" • 184 pages
ISBN 9781856913560 • paperback • $19.99

8 car tours, many suggestions for train, funicular and cable car rides, 150 long and short walks (of which 36 are specially tailored to motorists). Longer than the normal 'Landscapes" guide, this book covers a lot of ground - from the shores of Lake Geneva to the Swi"s Jura, the Bernese Oberland and the valleys of the Valais. Although a car is the best way to explore much of western Switzerland, the country boasts the world's best public transport system. You can see a vast majority of its mountain landscapes by public transport. Where trains don't go, buses will - even to remote valleys and hamlets. The author, who lives in the area and has written several guides for walkers, caters for all abilities from gentle strolls through the wine villages above Lake Geneva or amongst the cheese dairies in La Gruyere to more strenuous hikes beside the north face of the Eiger or alongside the largest glacier in the Alps. Information boxes add interest to the book - whether describing grape varieties and harvesting methods around Lake Geneva or the engineering feats of the country's dams and irrigation channels.
