Leading from the Castle of Vufflens to the Castle of Morges, this two-part trail in the winegrowing villages and in the heart of the medieval town shows you the treasures of the La Côte AOC region and the delicious vintages from the largest vineyards in the canton of Vaud.
From the villages in the Morges vineyards, there is a fantastic view of Lake Geneva, the medieval town and, weather permitting, Mont-Blanc, which is exactly opposite. The winetouristic hike in this picture postcard scenery offers a fun discovery of the region, its specialties and wines. Starting out from Vufflens and its impressive castle, the free app called Vaud:Guide shows you the way along approx. 4 miles (most of which is in the vineyards and some in the town of Morges) and about thirty historic, unique and must-see sites. Each of these sites presents a challenge to participants, who can reply to multiple-choice questions, find a specific location thanks to their GPS or make a selfie in front of a beautiful panorama. All this can make you win points! For novices: Don’t panic. The answers are quite straightforward for those with an observant eye.
