Today, Claire and Momo are taking you on a cruise on the lake for 3 hours (in yellow on the map) with the Belle Epoque steam boat «La Suisse». With the current heat here, I hope this article will help you to stay cool !
Be on time, because the boat won’t be waiting for you !
Today, I’m taking you on a walk with Claire and Momo, close to home, on the Plantour Tour.
The hill of Plantour is located between Aigle and Ollon; Claire and Momo left from the cloister quartier at Aigle, They walked towards the castle and through the vineyards, then quickly took a path that goes up through the forest. The trail is quite steep in places, we advise against it in case of rain.
After sweating, they arrived at the Belvedere of Plantour. From here you have a magnificent view of the whole Rhone plain, up to the Lake of Geneva.
The Plantour Tour is a loop that goes around the hill ; on the other side, we see the village of Verschiez in the foreground, the Rhone plain towards Valais, and the Dents du Midi in the center (unfortunately hidden by the clouds that day).
The return to Aigle is done by the paths that wind through the vineyards to the castle.
