My favorite spot is… at the top of a mountain.

My best camping experience ever: The Mont-Blanc tour with my dog Caline.

When I camp it is like this: Just feel purely well and relaxed.

That’s what I like to hear best while driving: I like so many, but “What’s Up” by 4 Non Blondes is my favorite.

What I love most about my job… is to share adventures and spots.

Why hire a camper in Geneva-Pays de Gex??

One camper – three countries! That could be the short version of the answer, but of course, we’d love to tell you more about why Geneva is a good choice to rent a camper. On the one hand, Geneva is a city with beautiful nature. On the shores of Lake Geneva, you can set up your home away from home on idyllic campsites and explore the city and its surroundings from there. On top of that, Geneva is an internationally renowned city with a special status and is also known as the “smallest metropolis in the world“. After New York, many international organisations are located here, including the UN, CERN, WHO, and WTO. If you’ve always been interested in visiting CERN or want to see the UN building, Geneva is of course “the place to be”.

If you want a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, you’ll find it on a tour of Lake Geneva or a hike up the local mountain, Mont Salèvedu. Cities such as Lyon, Grenoble, Annecy, Lausanne, Bern and even Turin can be reached from Geneva in a few hours. Would you rather leave the city and the crowds behind? Then rent a campervan in Geneva and experience nature and solitude. The Jura mountains, Mont Blanc, the Aosta Valley, and the Alps on the Swiss and Italian sides are all right under your nose. The choice for a road trip from Geneva is huge!

From Switzerland, you can rent a camper van at these locations: Campervan hire in Switzerland

Here are a few ideas for your camping holiday in and around Geneva:

  • Get to know chic Geneva with its international flair and sights.
  • Make yourself at home on a campsite right on Lake Geneva.
  • Get to know Switzerland, France and Italy in just one road trip.
  • Experience high alpine landscapes on mountain passes and hikes in the Alps.
  • Catch a glimpse of the highest mountain in the Alps – Mont Blanc.
  • Taste the four cheese delicacies of the Jura mountains.
  • Test yourself on a multi-day hut hike or via ferrata in the Alps.
  • Experience hiking and MTB fun on the designated trails in the Haut-Jura.
  • Travel to the French wine regions around Dijon, Beaune and Macôn.

roadsurfer-Tip: In addition to the “Bois-de-Bay” campsite, which is the most centrally located campsite in Geneva, we recommend TCS Camping Geneva-Vésenaz – located directly on Lake Geneva and only 6 kilometers from the city centre. All campsite guests receive the “Free Geneva Transport Card” and can explore Geneva and the region free of charge by public transport.

Rent a campervan and get a taste of the international flair in Geneva

Many languages and nations come together in Geneva, even though the main language is French and the region belongs to French-speaking Switzerland. A total of over 150 nations live in Geneva and the proportion of foreigners is almost 50 percent. This is partly due to the many international organisations. This mixture makes Geneva a city with an international flair, which you will also feel as you stroll through the city. Switzerland’s second-largest city is bordered by Lake Geneva, which gives the city an almost Mediterranean flair in fine weather – especially when the people of Geneva meet on the lakeside promenades for a café or cocktail.

Exploring Geneva and Geneva’s sights

  1. Jet d’eau: The fountain on Lake Geneva is one of Geneva’s landmarks.
  2. Collège Calvin: Collège dating from 1559, making it one of the oldest public schools in the world.
  3. Jardin botanique de Genève and Jardin Anglais: Both beautifully landscaped parks in Geneva.
  4. Birthplace of Jean-Jacques Rousseau: One of the most important thinkers and pioneers of the French Revolution was Genevan – Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
  5. International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum: Geneva is the birthplace of the International Red Cross and has an entire museum dedicated to its history.
  6. Palais des Nations: The European headquarters of the UN is located on the edge of the international quarter in a small park. Take tram No. 15 to the last stop “Nation”. If you want, you can take part in a 1-hour guided tour.
  7. Stroll through the old town: The old town in Geneva is situated on a hill, is manageable, and not overrun by tourists. It is ideal for a leisurely stroll. In addition to the Palace of Justice and the City Hall, the Cathédrale Saint-Pierre is especially worth a visit.
  8. View from the Cathédrale Saint-Pierre: Climb the north tower for an awesome view of the city and the lake with its jet d’eau.

Our insider tips: Geneva from a different angle

  1. Trip to Carouge: The suburb of Carouge is known as the “Greenwich Village” of Geneva and is home to many artists. There aren’t really any exciting sights here, but there doesn’t have to be! Saturday mornings are best for a stroll and lunch: cosy alleys, elegant houses, courtyard gardens, studios, and cafés that invite you to slow down. On Wednesday and Saturday mornings, the weekly market takes place on the Place du Marché! You can watch the hustle and bustle from the Café du Marché.
  2. Explore Geneva with the “mouettes”: Mouettes is Geneva’s water taxis. They take you to the following stations: Molard, Pâquis, Eaux-Vives, Port Noir and De Chateaubriand.
  3. By boat from Geneva to idyllic lakeside villages: Boats leave from Geneva to take you to many other places around Lake Geneva. The village of Yvoire is particularly worth a visit.
  4. Visit the CERN nuclear research centre: for those who are passionate about the mysteries of the universe! In 1954, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) founded a research laboratory for particle physics in Geneva. CERN is home to the largest particle accelerator, which is used to research the smallest components of matter: elementary particles. There are exhibitions and from Monday to Saturday, you can take part in guided tours that are really worthwhile – not only for nerds and quantum physicists!
  5. Taste Geneva specialties: The “Brasserie Genevoise” offers a wide range of traditional Geneva specialties: Perch fillet (filet de perche) from Lake Geneva, the gratin of freshwater crabs (gratin aux écrevisses) or cheese fondues.
  6. Les Grottes” residential district: Not far from the station, you’ll find architecture reminiscent of Hundertwasser. The colourful, mushroom-shaped building complexes are also called “Les Schtroumpfs” (the Smurfs).
  7. Les Pâquis: This district is not far from the Geneva train station and is considered the most disreputable in the city. Geneva’s red-light and gay scene lives here and it gets particularly turbulent in the evening hours: nightclubs, cabarets, bars, and hipster shops line up here.
  8. Day trip to Mont Salève: Although Geneva’s local mountain is already in France, it is a popular excursion destination for the people of Geneva. You can get to the top either on foot, by car or by cable car.

Road trip from Geneva: Tips for excursion destinations

There are many destinations around Lake Geneva that you can visit with your camper. The Swiss Riviera on Lake Geneva is beautiful almost everywhere. Vineyards, mountain panoramas and idyllic villages will enchant you. In keeping with this, you’ll find campsites almost everywhere around the lake. But of course, we’ll also look a little further afield: to France and Italy, to give you even more ideas for your road trip and convince you why campervan hire in Geneva is an excellent idea.

Highlights in Switzerland around Geneva

Lavaux vineyard terraces and Swiss Riviera: There are many charming wine villages right on the shores of Lake Geneva. The best known are the vineyards of Lavaux not far from Lausanne.

Thrills on Glacier 3000: Glacier 3000 is located in the Parc des Diables and can be reached by cable car. The first suspension bridge in the world that connects two peaks – the Peak Walk – provides a special thrill. From up there you have a wonderful view of the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc Massif, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

Highlights in France not far from Geneva

Annecy: It only takes 45 minutes by camper from Geneva to Annecy – “the Venice of the Alps”. Like Geneva, Annecy is also situated on a beautiful lake. Enjoy the old town with its waterways, the beautiful half-timbered houses, and the lakeside promenade with a view of the mountains.

Geopark des Bauges: Whether it’s hiking, snowshoeing, MTB trails, caving, canyoning, climbing or skiing, and snowboarding in winter, you’re sure to find your outdoor adventure to suit you in the Geopark des Bauges near Annecy.

Chamonix and Mont Blanc: Hire your campervan in Geneva and drive through the beautiful Arve Valley towards Chamonix before reaching the foot of the highest peak in the Alps. Either hike to get closer to Mont Blanc or take the Aiguille du Midi cable car to the top and enjoy the incredible views of the highest mountain in the Alps.

Hiking in the Haut-Jura & discovering regional specialties: rent a camper in Geneva and spend your holidays in the Haut-Jura Nature Park. On the Rando Nature Haut Jura site, you can plan your hikes while visiting cheese makers, beekeepers, and other local producers.

The Grand Paradiso is divided into the valleys: Valle Orco, Valle Soana, Valle di Cogne, Valsavarenche and Valle di Rhêmes. Everywhere you will find a network of hiking trails and cycling routes. If you wish, you can also take part in guided mountain hikes. There is also the Paradisia botanical alpine garden and, of course, ski slopes in winter.

Turin: In just 3.5 hours from Geneva, you can be in the Italian metropolis of Turin and the beautiful Piedmont region. Walk in the footsteps of the Romans and the Dukes of Savoy. Taste homemade pasta à la mama and Turin specialities such as bicerin, grissini and martini, which originated in Turin.
