Switzerland really is this Beautiful. Head for the Mountains. by Marybeth Bond | Sep 13, 2011 | Adventure, Switzerland | Life is good on a sunny day biking in the Swiss Vaux Region near Lake Geneva. The Swiss Alps are a hiker’s heaven with hundreds of miles of well marked and maintained trails Leave your car and traffic behind. Ride the efficient trains and enjoy the views. Ride the ski lift up the mountain, rent a scooter bike and zip down the paved trails.
