Boat and Ferry Travel

Like all fair-size Swiss lakes, Lac Léman is crisscrossed with comfortable and reasonably swift steamers, here run by the Compagnie Générale de Navigation. In summer they sometimes run more often than the trains that parallel their routes. You can embark and disembark freely at ports along the way. The trip from one end of the lake to the other will take the better part of a day, as routes are designed to serve a third of the lake per circuit, connecting towns on both the French and Swiss sides. Shorter trips like the one from Lausanne to Vevey will take an hour.
