This summer, take a few days to experience the sparkling magic of Lake Geneva – the largest freshwater lake in Europe. Set right at the water’s edge, Four Seasons makes the perfect home base. Choose from our five lake-inspired adventures, each custom-tailored for you by our team of local experts.
- Champagne by the Lake
Board an ultra-modern yacht for a private cruise on Lake Geneva, guided by our experienced Captain Balthazar. You’ll love his stories of local history, as he shares tales of the lake’s treasures and emblematic residences along the shoreline. As sunlight turns the waves into sparkling diamonds, sip a glass of chilled Champagne and enjoy delicious chef-made appetizers.
- Ride the Waves
Set out aboard a next-generation yacht for a personalized wakeboarding, waterskiing or swimming experience on the warm summer waters of Lake Geneva. “I suggest starting the trip at sunrise,” says Chef Concierge Mina Bayat. “You’ll be surprised by the lake’s beauty and quiet. And of course, we’ll serve a custom breakfast right on the boat.”
- Cruise & Dine
For an afternoon of sportfishing, embark with Captain Balthazar in an elegant motorboat, and journey to secret spots for perch, whitefish and trout. Return to Il Lago restaurant where our one-Michelin-starred Chef Massimiliano Sena will prepare your catch for you – or you may even assist him. As Chef Sena says, “Sharing my knowledge with our guests is one of the most beautiful parts of my job.”
