Adult Day - Very good Walkers

The ascent of La Tournette, the highest peak around Lake Annecy, is not an easy task! It is a route with many overhead passages (cables, chains, ladders). Hopefully, we'll meet the ibex herd in our path. The summit will give us a 360° view of the surrounding mountains and the famous Mont Blanc massif. The descent will take place along the same ascent path.

Carpooling is possible from Annecy for people who are not transported (limit of 4 places).

Walking times are calculated from an average speed defined in the hiking difficulty levels sheet. These are indicative times that do not include breaks. The itinerary may be slightly modified for security reasons (weather, level of participants) or for organisational reasons.

The hike can be organized on another day of the week in private commitment: Link
