Description

Hike from the Forclaz pass (1147 metres). Spectacular panorama over Lake Annecy and the surrounding mountains: the Bauges, Tournette, Dents de Lanfon and Semnoz.

Family-friendly hike. Bring walking sticks, a camera and enough water in summer. Remember to take binoculars to observe the animals: chamois, ibex, eagles.
Shaded path in summer with passages in the forest. Superb panoramic view from the Rocher du Roux lookout!
Paragliders take off from the Col de la Forclaz to admire one of the most beautiful views of Lake Annecy!
