Vaud stretches from Lake Neuchatel in the north, where it borders the canton of Neuchatel to Lake Geneva in the south, bordering the canton of Geneva, Haute-Savoie (Lake Border with France) and canton of Valais.

The areas in the southeast are mountainous, part of the Swiss Alps, the Diablerets with 3,210 metres are part of these mountain range. There are significant glaciers in these mountains, home to some well-known ski resorts, such as Les Diablerets and Leysin.

The canton is the second largest producer of wine in Switzerland. Most of the wine produced is white wine, and most vineyards are located on the steep shores of Lake Geneva.

There is agriculture in the areas away from Lake Geneva. Sugar beet is important around Orbe, tobacco in the La Broye Valley and fruits are grown on the foot of the Jura Mountains. Cattle breeding and pasture are common in the Alps and the Jura Mountains. There is a salt mine at Bex.

Tourism is important in many towns along the Lake Geneva. Major lakeside resorts include Lausanne, Montreux and Vevey.
