Narcissus Tours

During the last three weeks of May, A DIFFERENT VIEW has prepared an accompanied day tour to the wild narcissus fields. We drive to the pre-alps above the northern end of Lake Geneva to see, inhale the fragrant scent of, and photograph the glorious hillside carpets of wild narcissus.

We walk along designated paths and through the open fields where the flowers grow. The wild narcissus are now protected by environmental laws.  

With the guidance of a wildflower and plant expert, you will learn the botanical history of the flowers, why they grow only in this special area of the Canton Vaud, and what the future holds for these exquisite wild mountain flowers that are disappearing too quickly.

After a leisurely, flower-filled morning walk (approx. 2 hours), we will stop for lunch at a charming, hillside restaurant that serves excellent meals of local specialties.

We also provide a day trip that includes a springtime picnic lunch of seasonal and regional delicacies instead of a restaurant lunch. At the end of the walk, purchase small bouquets of fresh narcissus that are purchased from a special stall where payment is made to an 'honesty box'. We look forward to welcoming you on this uniquely beautiful, scented tour.
