Narcissi in bloom - guided discovery walks

From 6 May to 5 June 2017, the Association for the protection and promotion of the Swiss Riviera narcissi (l’Association Narcisses Riviera) proposes a programme of guided walks during the narcissus flowering season, with the support of tourist taxes and Montreux-Vevey Tourisme. The walks offer an opportunity to appreciate the natural beauty of our region, to discover meadows of sweet-smelling narcissi, and to learn more about these emblematic flowers and why they are now endangered. Walks are proposed at different levels of difficulty, mostly following hiking trails in the regions of the Riviera, Veveyse and Gruyère.  


Information, prices and registration

Advance registration is obligatory at Montreux-Vevey Tourisme: phone +41 848 86 84 84 or e-mail info@montreuxriviera.com, as the number of participants is limited. Once reserved, your places cannot be cancelled and are not reimbursable; your credit card will be charged with the total amount for all the places you reserve. The prices listed for each walk are payable in advance, with a special rate for families for full-day walks.


Who will guide the walks?

The walks will be guided by Sarah Clark and Carole Bardy, mountain leaders qualified with the Swiss Mountain Guides Association (ASGM).


Languages

Most of the walks will be guided in French. For English-speakers, one walk will be guided in English (13 May afternoon).
 

Equipment

You need to come equipped with good walking boots (adapted to mountain paths, with a profiled sole and ankle support), fleece/jumper, rain jacket, hat, sun protection, umbrella (depending on weather forecast), hiking poles, and rucksack with a drink and snacks. For full-day walks, bring at least one litre to drink and a picnic for midday as refreshments will not be available during the walk.
For the security of each participant and of the group, we reserve the right to refuse anyone who turns up without the necessary footwear and equipment. 
 

Responsibility and insurance

Each person participates under their own responsibility; children are accepted under the responsibility of their parents. All participants must follow the instructions of the mountain leader and inform her if they have concerns about the walk or if suffering from any illness or condition that might affect them during the day. Each participant should have appropriate accident and repatriation insurance. The Association Narcisses Riviera declines all responsibility in the case of accident.
 

Cancellation

The walks take place under most weather conditions. If the weather is very bad, we may decide to cancel the outing. In this case, all participants will be informed and will be free to reserve a place for another outing of their choice.
Please let Montreux-Vevey Tourisme know as soon as possible if you need to cancel your own participation, so that your place can be given to someone else.  In this case, your payment will not be reimbursed.
