Leysin  1263/2200m www.leysin.ch Day CHF49.00-59.00 (2009)  

With its sweeping views across Lake Geneva, little Leysin has some of the most impressive views in the Alps.


Leysin is a small resort, especially when compared to nearby Gstaad and even Les Diablerets. It means that the place remains slightly off the beaten track. And yet, there is an indefinable something about Leysin that enables it to seem more than the sum of its parts. Well worth a drive to (about 50mins?)  and a good day spent exploring. Incredible views. Good value. Up the valley at the northern end of lake Geneva.
