Active Europe specialist, UTracks has announced its first-ever Via Francigena in Switzerland from Lausanne on Lake Geneva to Aosta in the Italian Alps.

The new Swiss Francigena itinerary takes in the UNESCO-listed vineyards of Lavaux, the Rhone Valley and finally crosses the magnificent Swiss Alps leading to the historical Great Saint Bernard Pass.

The Via Francigena in Switzerland runs through a variety of landscapes and is without doubt also one of the most spectacular pilgrims’ paths in Europe. This new itinerary, which covers the final section of the Francigena pilgrimage route in Switzerland, offers spectacular views, delicious local cuisine and fascinating history.

Trip highlights include:

  • Walking through the alpine landscapes of the Valais
  • Soaking up the history on the Great Saint Bernard Pass
  • Passing alongside the beautiful shores of Lake Geneva and the vineyards of Lavaux
  • Descending into the Aosta Valley through breath-taking alpine terrain
  • Staying in warm, comfortable family-run hotels and delighting in their friendly hospitality.

From Canterbury in England to Rome in Italy, the 1900km “Francigena Way” dates back to the 11th century when pilgrims travelled across Europe on foot to visit the site of Martyrdom of St Peter and St Paul in Rome.

With the modernisation of Europe and the shifting of borders the route became obsolete, until a recent revival of the pilgrimage has made it one of the most exciting pilgrimage trails in Europe today.

Graded moderate to challenging, the 11-day, self-guided Francigena Way Switzerland: Lausanne to Aosta itinerary is priced from $2250 per person with daily departures from

1 June – 30 September 2018.
