GETTING FROM A TO B IN THE VAUD ALPS
In the Vaud Alps you will find many options for getting comfortably and on time to your destinations.
The Transports Publics du Chablais (TPC), the Montreux-Bernese Oberland Railway company (MOB), the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB/CFF) and various taxi companies will be happy to help you reach your destinations in total comfort upon arrival, during your stay in the region and on your way back.
Take public transport through beautiful sceneries, while you relax and admire the landscape and, with a bit of luck, spot deer or other wild animals grazing not far from the path.
Our region is well known for its small mountain railways connecting the valleys with the villages, as well as for the buses that take you to even the most remote destinations. This way, you can explore the region at your leisure.
Do you love travelling by train? Travel on over 100-year-old railway lines which remain a strong historical and touristic backbone of our region.
From Aigle, take the cogwheel train to Leysin. In winter, the Bex-Gryon-Villars-Bretaye line takes you directly to your favourite snow activities.
Connecting Aigle with Les Diablerets via Sépey. This line winds its way along the endless vineyards and runs alongside the Grande-Eau river.

This journey takes you along the sparkling Lake Geneva from Montreux, through the valleys and villages of the Pays-d'Enhaut to Zweisimmen, giving you an unforgettable journey in which one dreamlike panorama after another opens up before your eyes.

If you wish to admire the summit of the Rübli, the Videmanette cable car will take you to the foot of the mountain, or you can use the ski slopes connecting the Pays-d'Enhaut with Gstaad during the winter. In summer, the Videmanette hut is the starting point for countless hikes.
The various ski lifts and mountain cableways will take you directly and effortlessly to the start of our ski slopes or to the top of our mountains, where superb views await you.
Our cable cars, chairlifts and drag lifts will take you directly to the ski slopes or to the heights of the ski resorts.
The Berneuse cable car takes you from Leysin up to the summit to the revolving restaurant Kuklos, which offers you a unique 360° view of the Vaud Alps and Lake Geneva. From here, you can admire the impressive landscape panorama that passes very slowly in front of your eyes while you comfortably enjoy a moitié-moitié fondue, or the delicious pasta prepared by the chef. Afterwards, you can enjoy the ski slopes in winter, the mountain bike slopes in summer or a relaxing hike. Of course, many hikes are accessible from the Leysin ski lifts.
From the Col du Pillon, gain height with the cable car and reach the summit of the famous Glacier 3000, where countless activities are awaiting you: a dog sled ride, the famous Peak Walk or even a thrill on the Alpine Coaster. For those who love ski slopes, take the easy slopes of the Tsanfleuron glacier directly from the cable car station and make your personal skiing dream come true. The seven-kilometre-long and demanding Olden slope awaits for a real challenge.
The Villars lifts take you to the top of the Grand Chamossaire, from where you will have a magnificent view of the Rhone Valley and of the Leysin mountains. On the other side of the domain, the Diablerets Express cable car takes you to Les Mazots.
