Geneva Lake

A boat ride in Geneva Lake; it is one of the unmissable things to do in Geneva.

Many companies along the lake shore line offer various combinations for excusions in the lake. Check the time that you can spare and fit in a cruise in the lake. We enjoyed our trip. The views we got to see were of old castles, mansions that belonged to rich, new tall buildings and even a good view of the United Nations building; all of them in a visual capsule of one hour. This, probably is the best way to see the highlights of Geneva.

It was windy that day and we saw sail boats topple over like little toy boats. Guess that is the kind of thrill the sailors look out for in their little yachts. Run the mouse over this picture below to see the fate of the yacht.

  1. Must be a good rule of thumb on every coastal town we visit to take a cruise.

    I haven't taken a cruise by SF yet and I've lived around the area for the longest time.

    Have a lovely week.

    how did you do it, I was looking at the photo before I read you commentary. I had to move up and down, until I read.

  23. Kim, USA says:

    I agree you. This way the business grows more so people could see Geneva from the water point of view and this is awesome!

    Watery Wednesday

  24. A boat ride sounds like a perfect thing to do on a sweltering summer day.


    Water on Wednesday
    And other days too,
    Water for me, friend,
    And water for you;

    Water as ocean
    And water as sea,
    Water for you, friend,
    And water for me;

    Every day water
    In puddle or ice
    Or snowflakes or mist—
    Oh, water is nice!

    A cruise on the Geneva Lake sounds really an enchanting experience. We missed Geneva on our last trip there. Hope to make up next time.
