Whether for romantic cruise, a bicycle excursion or to admire the shores of Lake Neuchâtel, a cruise with an LNM ship is a soothing and relaxing experience. In summer, the landing jetties at Yverdon-les-Bains, Grandson and Concise are served from Tuesday to Sunday.

The shipping company on the lakes of Neuchâtel and Morat (LNM) assures navigation between the main towns of the lakes of Neuchâtel, Bienne and Morat. Although services run all year round, the landings of the Yverdon-les-Bains region only have a service three times a day during the summer season.

Historical cruises on the freshly renovated century-old historic steam ship ‘Neuchâtel’, take place on the first Sunday in June, July, August and September.

The ships transport bicycles free of charge, which allows splendid excursions on numerous cycle tracks along the shores. Themed cruises are also on offer. The fleet of the company’s nine ships has a capacity of 3,500 places, 1,000 of them with restaurant service, and offers services to 35 landings. It is possible to hire a boat for a private event.
