Switzerland: Sailing

A summer and winter sports paradise

Switzerland Sailing

The lakes in Switzerland offer many opportunities for sailing. Whether you are an experienced sailor and want to hire a vessel for the day, or want to get some lessons, or would rather hire out a boat with an experienced crew while you relax and enjoy the view, all these options are available to you in Switzerland. At Lake Geneva, for instance, a visit to the marina will find you dinghy hire, sailing instructors, a kids’ school and motor boat hire.

If you’re staying in a hotel at any of the lakes in Switzerland, they may offer their own boat hire or sailing school. Just bear in mind that the weather on the lakes in Switzerland, which are often surrounded by mountains, can change very quickly. Always pay heed to local weather advice and stay aware of any changes in the weather.
