Description

On their tour around the lake of Geneva, cyclists will be rewarded for their efforts by the stunningly beautiful landscapes. 130 km of marked trails lead through 5 regions in 2 countries: Geneva, Pays de Gex, the cantons of Vaud and Valais, as well as the Chablais Haut-Savoyard.
Lake Geneva is the largest natural lake in the Alps and offers an incredible panorama to everyone delighting in its shores. The vast expanse of water, which reflects the snowy mountains, is encircled by a varied landscape. The contrast between water and mountains is a constantly changing feature of the route around the lake. The easy pedal along the lake shore is followed by steep sections on the slopes; the urban bustle on the busy streets is replaced by a peaceful, rural ambiance.

Some protected sections are more suitable for families than others that are exposed to road traffic. We recommend cycling clockwise around the lake to stay as close as possible to the shore. The route runs from Geneva along the northern lake shore via Chablais in the French Departement Haute-Savoie. At one end Geneva, the well-known Swiss metropolis, at the other a peaceful oasis, the nature reserve of Les Grangettes. To the north Lausanne and the Vaud Riviera, one of Switzerland's main tourist hotspots. To the south the sheltered French shore, where the mountains seem to plunge directly into the lake.

Lake Geneva also owes its charm to its border location. The rich variety of culture is the same yet very different. Those wanting to really sample and understand it however must take at least two or three days. If you could only make time stand still!
