Annecy Alpine Adventure

Annecy Alpine Adventure

Enjoy stunning scenery on this charming tour, as we visit picturesque towns and magnificent mountains. We begin in Chamonix, home to one of the world’s highest cable car systems, allowing you to view the spectacular sights from above. You will have the chance to visit the city of Geneva, which has a fine selection of buildings, parks and gardens, stylish shops and cafés and is set alongside Lake Geneva, where you can take delightful waterside walks. Dominated by its castle – which took over four centuries to build – we arrive in Annecy, where you can stroll the city’s quaint old town with its canals and revel in the beauty from the lake-side promenade.

Your Itinerary

Sunday 13th: We continue our journey to the heart of the French Alps to the mountain village of La Clusaz.

Monday 14th: This morning, we embark on an excursion to Annecy. Often described as the “Venice of the Alps”, this beautiful lakeside town is blessed with charming canals and narrow streets waiting to be explored. Our guided walking tour will give us an insight into the history of this popular summer resort. After free time for lunch in one of the many waterside restaurants we will enjoy a 60 minute circular cruise on the lake itself before returning to our hotel.

Tuesday 15th: Today we journey to the chic mountain resort of Chamonix. We spend the day here enjoying the relaxing town centre and have the opportunity to visit the numerous sights including the impressive Aiguille du Midi (not included). After free time for lunch in the town, we board the Train du Montenvers for our return journey up to view the impressive glacier known as the Mer de Glace. At the summit, we will have the opportunity to descend via cable car and walk within the glacier itself (please note that this requires a significant number of steps and is not suitable for those with walking difficulties). In addition, we can visit the museum at the summit known as the Glacorium, which charts the
evolution of the glacier over the centuries.

This pretty village has hardly changed over the centuries with beautifully decorated houses and gardens.
