Boat Rental in Lausanne
When you are in the region of the canton of Vaud, and you want to discover the Lake Geneva region, there is nothing better than renting a boat that will allow you to discover an iconic region in a different way.
Named Olympic capital, and home to the EPFL university campus, Lausanne is a young and bustling city.
In the district of Ouchy on the shores of Lake Geneva, you will find the famous palace of the Beau-Rivage Lausanne. This 5-star hotel offers a superb view of the lake. Anne Sophie Pic has established her restaurant here, which has been awarded two stars in the Michelin guide. From the hotel’s terrace, you can see the city of Evian, known for its internationally sold water.
Renting a boat from Lausanne will allow you to have a different view of the lake than from the shore. Indeed, as soon as you leave the shore of the lake, you will be in front of a stretch of water mirroring an ocean.
One of the privileged routes is to head towards Lutry, which marks the beginning of an area classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Lavaux. This plot of land on the hillside is covered with vines. From May to September, the greenery of the vines brings out the beauty of the typically Swiss villages, such as Cully or Rivaz, which follow one another along the bank.
During the navigation, you will have the opportunity to cross the steamboats, “Belle Epoque”. These superb paddle-wheelers transport tourists from one shore to the other of Lake Geneva.
By renting your boat a little in advance from Lausanne, you will certainly have the chance to meet professional fishermen hauling up their nets. You will find feras, pike and perch, but also arctic char and lake trout, which are the most sought-after fish. If you wish to try your luck at fishing, it is possible to angling. Indeed the area in front of Lausanne is particularly full of fish and we provide all the fishing equipment to make your outing a success.
With rivers feeding Lake Geneva with pure water from the mountains and the Alps, you will enjoy swimming or water sports in the cleanest water. All the necessary equipment, such as wakesurfs or wakeboards, are on board the boats. Our fleet of boats, always the latest, will let you choose from several brands of boats, such as the Cobalt, Correct Craft or MasterCraft, all of which offer an optimal wave for water sports.
After enjoying one of these leisure activities, venture aboard your rented boat to Evian. There, make a stop at the Casino or Hotel Royal. This hotel has one of the most beautiful golf courses in Europe. On the terrace in front of the green, enjoy the plunging view of the lake and the entire Vaud coast. You will then see Lausanne from afar and your boat waiting there for your return to port.
Whatever the type of activity you wish to do, the rental of a boat in Lausanne, with or without captain, is to be put on the to do list when you come to this part of Switzerland.
