Canton Vaud, situated in the Lake Geneva Region, extends from the peaceful Jura Mountains up to the fascinating Vaudoise Alps and along crystal–clear and majestic lakes that blend into the authentic charm of the landscape.
Vaud is one of the most important wine-producing areas in Switzerland (mainly white wines), with vineyards and wineries primarily along Lake Geneva. Wheat is widely grown. Sugar beets are cultivated at Orbe, tobacco in La Broye Valley, and fruit at the foot of the Jura. The total area is 3,212 square kilometres (1,240 sq mi). Along with the canton of Berne, Vaud is one of the two cantons whose territory extends from the Jura to the Alps, through the three distinct geographic regions of Switzerland.
