Itineraries to take in the sights

The valleys, trails and summits are gradually becoming accessible with the arrival of spring. Each itinerary has its own particularities and deserves a minimum of preparation. That's why the mountain leaders of the Annecy office offer you a selection of day and half-day hikes that change with the seasons. 

The half-day hikes are done on itineraries of about 2h / 3h of walking and the levels of difficulty vary from beginner to intermediate.

The day hikes are done on itineraries of about 4h30 to 6h30 of walking and the levels of difficulty vary from intermediate to expert.

You will find all the practical information and topo of each hike on the booking link or on the technical sheet to download on this page.

Each outing will be an opportunity to discover a little more than just hiking trails. Your guide will know how to highlight the richness of the chosen itinerary through its local heritage, its geological specificities or its fauna and flora: the promise of living beautiful moments of conviviality in the open air.

Face the lapiaz of the Parmelan, meet the mountain animals, stroll in the green alpine pastures of the Semnoz, challenge the differences in altitude on the mythical summit of the Tournette, enjoy panoramic views of the Aravis range... So many possible experiences in the mountains at varying altitudes from Annecy and always in accordance with the weather conditions of the moment for safety reasons.

And if you still want more, why not try some multi-day hikes?
