The city of Lausanne offers boat and ferry cruises to many destinations around Lake Geneva not only in Switzerland but also France. You can take a ride to Montreux, Geneva, or the medieval village of Yvoire as well as the French spa Evian-les-Bains. The ride can take from 20 minutes to one hour. Cruising on Lake Geneva is a great activity for hot summer days especially. Pleasure boats and ferries depart regularly during this time. During the shoulder season (April–June and September–October) the boats are not as frequent, with a more busy schedule on weekends, In the winter, the service is limited to Sundays and national holidays only.
