Responsible tourism: Switzerland cycling tour, Geneva to Montreux

Environment

As members of Transportation Alternatives in New York, Pro-Velo in Geneva and Bourgeons in Annemasse, France, we are proud to offer our clients the opportunity to offset their carbon by using pollution-free bicycles.

Our trip takes you along the shores of Lake Geneva, as well as through the Swiss countryside, cycling by the region's vineyards and fields. It is organized on a self-guided basis, offering you the chance to experience such natural beauty while leaving behind a smaller footprint than would a guided tour.

We recommend travel by train, a much more eco-friendly solution — Geneva and Montreux are very easily accessibly by Swiss Rail. To travel within Europe, we recommend taking trains over renting cars using or air transports. Trains are more energy-efficient and will minimize the CO2 emission per capita. When flying is required, we suggest using an airline that contributes to funds aimed at offsetting carbon emissions.

In cities, we recommend clients to use public transportation, or to walk or bike. City bike rentals are more and more widely available in big and medium-sized cities across Europe they are the best way to get around congested cities.

Community

We are based in France. This is where we live and work. Our office is located in the French Alps, just a stone's throw from the Swiss border near Geneva, and we ride the very same roads we recommend to you for your cycling vacations. Like the French, the Swiss take pride in serving locally-produced food, so you can count on local restaurants serving farm-fresh meat and produce. You can even skip supermarkets and head straight to the source of chocolate and cheese in Gruyères.

As firm believers of sustainable development, we have established a friendly network of professionals comprised mainly of local tour guides, small operators, and family-run agencies. Most of our people have created their own jobs/enterprises in order to live their passion for the region and cultural heritage. All have extensive travel experience and have lived in various places before falling in love with the area they now call home.

Relying on local guides and family-owned hotels, you will be ensured a warm, personalized welcome. All properties are run by people who have a passion for their region and its cultural, gastronomic, and historical heritage. We use genuine places with local charm, blending harmoniously into the environment. Our hotels offer guests a pleasant, nice-sized environment. Some of them have as few as two rooms, while others are small human-sized hotels.

Travelling with us guarantees that you will be taken care of by caring professionals who chose to build their lives here. Forget the non-descript and indistinguishable big chain hotels — we use genuine places with local charm! All the properties we use are run by people who have a passion for their region and its cultural, gastronomic, and historical heritage.
