Fairmont Le Montreux Palace Rochers de Naye

Rochers de Naye

A singular panoramic view awaits: over the Swiss and French Alps from Eiger to Mont-Blanc and further to Lake Geneva. The railway up to Rochers-de-Naye operates year-round – even during winter. Actually, Father Christmas himself resides on this 2000 metres mountain in December. At 2000 metres a.s.l., visitors enjoy delightful hikes, observe marmot species from three continents and look at hundreds of plants from around the world. A particular highlight is the chance to spend the night in an original Mongolian love yurt (nomad-type tent).

A delightful journey to a dream destination
To get to this unique place, take the charming cog railway that departs every hour from Montreux and ascends more than 1,600 m on a magnificent journey through fields, villages and forests. After a journey that takes around 55 minutes – and is worth doing on its own – you reach the summit, where a whole host of activities are available.

The view from the summit of Rochers-de-Naye is simply stunning, overlooking Lake Geneva and the Vaud, Valais, Bern and even French Alps. From this point, you have a whole host of activities to choose from, including hiking or walks for the whole family, visiting the Marmot Paradise wildlife park or the La Rambertia alpine garden, skiing in the winter. To tantalise your taste buds as well as your eyes, there is a restaurant with panoramic views and a self-service café where you can recharge your batteries with tasty local dishes and snacks.

Known for their panoramic view over Lake Geneva and the Alps, the Rochers-de-Naye peaks are also a very popular ski resort with families. Reaching a high point of 2,042 metres, the runs benefit from excellent snow-cover from early winter. Once there, you’re welcomed by one of the most stunning panoramic views in Switzerland over the Alps and Lake Geneva, making your winter sports an even more magical experience! With 5 cable cars and a snowpark, the Rochers-de-Naye ski area is perfect for seasoned skiers as well as families.
