The Regional Nature Park extends from the shores of Lake Geneva to Montreux and into the destinations of the Vaud Alps as well as Gruyère and Gstaad.
Spread over more than 630 km², this Swiss park is located in a mountainous area representative of the northern limestone pre-Alps. Its territory is home to remarkable biotopes and geotopes, as well as a rich fauna and flora.
In addition to the breathtaking natural scenery, traditions and culture are an integral part of the park's identity. Whether through farming or cheese-making activities, more than a century of history is linked to it.
