Trail
“Gorges du Fier was my most favourite thing to do around Annecy! This place is awesome! Gorges du Fier is a canyon carved in a rock by the flowing waters of the river. These days it is a very popular attraction, due to its cliff-hugging foot bridge, which is suspended 25 metres above the river bed. Now, that is a site to see! So cool and really pretty!”

Mountain
“Maybe THE hike everyone should do when visiting Annecy. Starting from Le Petit Port, it's a 3 hours hike, taking you on the top of the Mont Veyrier where you'll have a stunning view on Annecy Lake. Must do if you have time.”
