Far from being nothing more than a business hub, there is more to Geneva than meets the eye. Party animals can have their fill in the Pâquis neighbourhood, the parks are filled with concerts, festivals and open-air cinemas in the summer and Geneva’s counterculture occupies Les Grottes. But that’s not all. Your private tour guide has organised running tours in Geneva that cover both the well-known attractions and everything that doesn’t flow with the mainstream.

Speaking of streams, Geneva’s Jet d’Eau (Water Jet) dominates Geneva’s skyline, despite being entirely liquid. It shoots water 140 metres into the sky and is dramatically lit by coloured lights at night. Top tip: its enormous spray comes in very useful after hot summer running tours in Geneva.

Water is ever present in the city, located at the tip of Lake Geneva (Lac Léman in French). Our guided runs can take you by the lake itself and the rivers it feeds. If you want to test yourself, take the Climb of Your Life tour. This is not for the faint-hearted and involves a gruelling trail run that climbs 900 metres through a forest path to a mountain peak. Your reward is a fantastic view over the entire city and Lake Geneva.

Of course, Geneva is known for bringing cultures together in a melting pot. Whether it’s home of the UN, the Palais des Nations, or CERN, home to the Large Hadron Collider, Geneva is a place where cosmopolitan collaboration reigns supreme.
