The topographically varied Aigle-Leysin-Col des Mosses region is located only about 10 kilometers from Lake Geneva. This playground for sports enthusiasts of all levels will enchant visitors seeking unspoilt nature and mountains as well as lovers of fine wines.
The Aigle-Leysin-Col des Mosses region boasts a wealth of diversity shaped by its long history. Its heritage is linked to the evolution of holiday resorts, winter sports and wine growing. The history of its wines (and especially those of the Chablais vineyards) can be discovered through the interactive exhibits at the Vine and Wine Museum housed in Aigle Castle. This, the region's iconic fortress, is silhouetted against the vineyards and the Alps − the majestic backdrop for the villages of Leysin, Les Mosses and La Lécherette. Their three interconnected ski zones offer sun-drenched pistes for skiers, freestylers and snowboarders of all levels. This region also offers plenty of distinctive skiing options such as snow tubing, cross-country and biathlon.
In winter and summer alike, French-speaking Switzerland's only revolving restaurant – the Kuklos, atop the Berneuse mountain – affords stunning views of an oasis of natural beauty, criss-crossed by signed hiking routes.
