solar boat tour lavaux cully switzerland

About us

It all began on a beautiful day in April 2016. Whilst chatting to my friend Gli, I asked him if anyone had ever contacted him about visiting our beautiful Lavaux on board his solar-powered Aquarel boats, (of which I had painted the hull at the end of their manufacture). When he answered no, the idea was born and it was immediately and clearly  fleshed out. It was necessary to organize visits of the Lavaux region on his solar boat at all costs!!! And that was it! The project started. I'll spare you the many laborious details and dull logistics. To give you an idea of ​​this new initiative, let me invite you to come and test our 'Along the waters of the Lavaux'. Let yourself be seduced!!
