Hiking is an activity in a magical setting

Hiking is discovering nature according to the seasons: fauna, flora, geology, mountain culture, leaving with an open book, which at the bend of each path will give you the secrets of an environment as demanding for nature as for the men who try to settle there.

In summer, we will drive you to the most beautiful peaks around Lake Annecy, Tournette, Parmelan, Aravis, Bauges, Bornes... or in less known secret walks.

In winter with snowshoes, we will discover wild places where you may cross chamois, ptarmigan... Your guide will teach you how to use avalanche detectors, dangerous areas to avoid... if you want to know more, come and walk quietly and take a good bowl of fresh air!
