Breakfast at your hotel.

 

Grab your walking shoes and follow the paths of a hike that will take you to the top of Mont Veyrier and offer you a panoramic view of Lake Annecy.


You will ascend on quiet forest trails, catching glimpses between the trees of the marvellous views that await, higher up. Not long before the top, we will pass by the Col de Contrabandier (smugglers pass) and an exciting steep, rocky section, well protected with chains and a barrier.

On the summit, the trail follows the very crest of the ridge and offers stunning photo opportunities galore. We will find the best spot to enjoy a picnic of fresh, locally sourced produce while drinking in the views. During lunch, your guide will explain more about the local cuisine, the culture and the history of the lake and town.

The route can be lengthened or shortened by your Experience Mont Blanc guide to meet the needs of your group and a half day option is also available.

 

Take advantage of the end of afternoon to wander around the old town of Annecy and visit the old prisons or the famous Château d'Annecy!
