Less than an hour away from Annecy, Geneva, Yvoire and the shores of Lake Geneva and Chamonix – let the mountain rivers guide you! The Giffre Mountains provide an open-air playground – from the gorges in Mieussy with their emerald water, to the ‘Cirque du Fer à Cheval’ and its waterfalls (which is in the process of being classified as a ‘Great National Site’) and the traditional village of Samoëns. Explore the villages, ancient market towns and picturesque hamlets. Relax beside a lake, a river or at the foot of a waterfall. Your future memories will be made in our mountains, whether you walk to enjoy the scenery or are an experienced hiker, want to explore the legendary passes or the mountain bike trails, wish to keep your feet on the ground or take to the skies, or be close to the rocks or the white water!
