Day trips from Lake Annecy

To help you best organize your stay, find here ideas for outings less than 2 hours from the campsite, in the Annecy region in Haute-Savoie.

The Mont Blanc

AIGUILLE DU MIDI : Ride France’s highest cable car: from 1035m to 3842m in 20 minutes! It’s the easiest way to discover the high mountain environment and the perpetual snows.

MONTENVERS TRAIN and MER DE GLACE: : The famous red train takes you on a 5.1km journey. After a 20-minute ascent, you’ll have a panoramic view of the Mont Blanc range and the glacier. You can then descend to the Mer de Glace: a unique experience is in store when you enter the ice cave.

Our recommendation : If you want to make the most of your day, we advise leaving very early in the morning so that you can enjoy both of the activities described above.

Le Beaufortain

BEAUFORT : Visit the cheese dairy and its interactive museum to discover the secrets of making the delicious “Beaufort” cheese.

BARRAGE DE ROSELEND : Situated in the heart of the alpine pastures, this is a great place for hiking. Trails of varying difficulty allow you to admire this impressive dam and meet the marmots, even with children.

Notre recommandation : By stopping at the cheese shop in the morning, you can buy something for a delicious picnic near the chapel, with a view of Lake Roselend.

Le Léman

YVOIRE : A flower-filled medieval village by the lake, listed as one of France’s Most Beautiful Villages. Castle, ramparts, garden, art shops.

ÉVIAN-LES-BAINS : A charming spa town, famous for its mineral water. Stroll along the quays, cable car, cruise on Lake Geneva, magnificent casino.

GENÈVE : Cross the Swiss border and discover the world’s smallest metropolis. Place du Bourg-de-Four, Jet d’Eau, Palais des Nations, Natural History Museum.

Our recommendation : Remember to deactivate passage through tolls on your GPS because the Swiss motorway requires an annual vignette.

Annecy: the Venice of the Alps

THE OLD TOWN : Between historic monuments and canals, along the narrow streets or under its medieval arcades, the old town invites you to stroll and take the time to admire its history.

CROISIERE SUR LE LAC : Between castles, reed beds and mountains, embark on a timeless discovery cruise. You will discover the magnificent lake landscapes, but also its history told along the water.

Our recommendation : Plan your day in Annecy on a Tuesday or Friday as it is market day in the old town. You will enjoy the prettiest and most typical market in the region.

Sports & well-being day

TOUR OF THE LAKE BY BIKE : By traveling this 40km loop of fully developed cycle path over half a day, the landscape between the crystal clear waters and the Alpine peaks will amaze you.

CARE and MASSAGE : after exercise, enjoy a moment of recovery and relaxation. The “Muscle Recovery Ritual” will delight you: hammam session to soothe and reduce tension then massage to relax and soothe your muscles.

Our good tip : remember to book your treatment with our beautician
