We are staying in Montreux next June and want to go to Yvoire. From my research, it seems the only way (without a car) is to take the train to Noyes on the north shore and then the ferry across the lake to Yvoire. This seems a very roundabout, time-consuming, and long way. Is there no other way to go more directly along the southern edge of the lake or a quicker way? We would like to stop on the way, maybe in Evian les Bains. Any help is appreciated.

HI stacy,

The quickest option is taking a boat across. There are limited bus options on the French side of the lake and no trains that I am aware of. In either case it is faster to train and boat across the lake from Montreux

The Swiss railways timetable will give you the quickest option when searching for transit option. This would be via Lausanne and/or Nyon and with a train and boat. The boat ride is quite a nice way to travel as well. :)

Lucas, thank you very much. It does look like this is the best option.
