Hikes

A sea of Narcissus in Les Pléiades, Switzerland

Everybody love a field full of wildflowers. Imagine a field full of wild white Narcissus, thousands of them spread all over on green hills with mountains behind as decor. You think that I am dreaming. If I am dreaming please don’t wake me up!

Ever since I heard of the Wild Narcissus hikes around Montreaux, Blonay and Vevey area I was waiting with patience for the wild narcissus season to begin.

They are in fully bloom between mid-may and last until mid-june. The narcissus flowering is dependent on height and sunshine as well as the weather conditions. Click here where you can get all the information of all the six narcissus hikes and you can enter your planned date to be informed if the narcissus are in bloom for that particular hike you want to do.

A few weeks ago as the narcissus were in fully bloom at the Les Avants I was so excited to take our first hike on mountain slopes covered with white flowers also known as white daffodil. All I can say is that I was heartbroken as the flowers were not as dense and beautiful as I have imagined.

But I didn’t want to give up the thought of laying on a bed of thousands of narcissus! So when the narcissus forecast for Les Pléiades (and the weather ) seems good we decided to have a look.

And I am so happy for our decision as the place was so beautiful!

It’s not a stroller friendly but it is very short walk, 4km with not much to climb. You can take the train either from Vevey or Blonay to Les Pléiades. We parked our car at the parking Motalles in Lally and then walk up 20 min to the Les Pléiades. It’s a loop hike so you will end up at the parking lot.

At the parking aux Mortalles, Lally.

Walk toward direction Les Pléiades. Or you can start the other direction, which I think would be easier!

You can pick the white flowers but only a handful without the leaf and the root.

  1. I’ve never seen such huge fields of narcissus flowers before. And I didn’t know that they could be found in Switzerland. They are absolutely beautiful. Your daughter is so adorable too!

  2. It was hard to believe that such a beautiful place exsists! This looks like a pure wonderland and your daughter in the picture playing made me think of “Alice in Wonderland”. Have to visit this place in this life because it is so amazing!!😊

  3. Oh this is so lovely! The wild Narcissus in full bloom looks gorgeous. The landscape look like a perfect background for pictures. I can see why you didn’t want to miss the opportunity to witness the bloom.

  4. Wow so many beautiful flowers! One of my fondest memories as a child has to be running and diving into daisies in flower fields – just gorgeous! Some lovely photos too!

  5. Switzerland looks like a hiker’s dream, I would love to hike amongst the Wild Narcissus simply because it looks so beautiful. it’s great you caught them while in full bloom and even luckier you seemed to have the place to yourself 🙂
