Absolute essentials

Whatever the season, there are some activities that simply have to be ticked off the list when you are in the region of Aigle, Leysin and Col des Mosses.

The area is full of unique attractions so you will definitely spend some unforgettable moments with family and friends joining in on any number of activities and visits. Naturally sport takes pride of place in this region that boasts a huge choice of ski fields and a myriad of walking trails. But there’s even more unexpected treasures to discover at the World Cycling Centre in Aigle as well as in the magnificent Aigle Château.

If it’s downhill thrills you’re after, then Leysin’s Tobogganing Park is the place for you. The first of its kind, this spine-tingling snowtubing park is the creation of olympic bobsleigh medallist Silvio Giobellina. For an awesome 360° panoramic view of the mountains, there can only be one destination – the Kuklos revolving restaurant unique to french-speaking Switzerland.
