SPECTACULAR SITES

The Fier Gorges

As one of the destination's must-see natural sites, the Fier Gorges are a truly spectacular sight to behold from the rock face.

On a walk of about 1 hour on a walkway suspended above the gushing waters of the River Fier, you can fully appreciate the natural power of water and its ability to carve its way through the rock and sculpt the landscape. This dedicated trail takes you into the heart of the gorges to discover their geological secrets and mysterious legends before you reach an amazing blockfield. An unforgettable tour!

The Angon waterfall

Magnificent 60-metre waterfall above Lake Annecy.

From Pré Vérel above Lake Annecy, take the shady path for an easy walk to the beautiful Angon waterfall. You’ll appreciate this refreshing scene from the balcony trail carved out of the rock face.

Cave and waterfall of Seythenex

Remarkable natural site and UNESCO-listed Geosite.

A unique place in Haute-Savoie where you can explore an underground gallery and understand how the cavities were formed, before returning to the surface to visit the Saut de l’Ange (angel’s leap), the 45-metre-high waterfall of Seythenex.

Several other beautiful waterfalls can be found on your walks in the lush green setting of the Sources du Lac d’Annecy region.

Waterfalls of the Aravis mountains

Even more impressive when the snow melts!

Just outside Thônes, the Nant Debout waterfall and the waterfalls trail offer a beautiful glimpse of the refreshing forest walks to be enjoyed in the Aravis mountains. You’ll find such a setting in Manigod at the Nant Burgeat waterfall, where the water cascades powerfully down a two-tier drop, or the mysterious waterfall of Le Grand-Bornand, surrounded by many a local legend. All of these walks are easy to do and promise a wonderful escape!
