Lake Walk Tours

Lake Geneva Cruise Line has a special way for you to enjoy your day with a self guided lake walk and cruise.

Besides the wonderful views of Geneva Lake, walkers see opulent multi-million dollar mansions, wooden boats valued at more than $400,000, beautifully manicured gardens and designer boat houses as they stroll along the public path where the lake-facing estates are front and center.

The unique opportunity is made possible because of an old law that requires the winding lake path around Lake Geneva be maintained and open to the public. Walkers are not trespassing on the yards of the rich and famous as long as they stay on the path. Walkers should wear sturdy shoes because the walkway, originally a Native American Potawatomi footpath, ranges from stone, brick and wood planks to concrete ramps, sandy beach, steps, and packed dirt.

PLEASE NOTE:  Reservations for all lake walk options must be reserved in advance with our sales office.  Lake walk reservations can not be booked online.  Please contact our sales office for details and reservations.
*Lake Geneva Cruise Line reserves the right to dictate the availability of pick ups and/or drop offs on certain days and at certain locations based on weather, pier conditions and boat accessibility.
