Spend a day hiking to the summit of the La Tournette overlooking the beautiful Lake Annecy. Let me lead the way on this great day trip in the Haute-Savoie region of the Alps.

We’ll start our day early, as in the lower sections of the mountain it can get very hot during the day. We’ll make our way to the summit in a group of no larger than 8 people.

This is a fun and varied hike, with steel ladders and chains in some of the more difficult sections. There is also some great wildlife living up in the mountains, expect to see at least one wild Ibex.

Climbing this mountain is no easy feat, sitting at 1,514 meters it’s actually the tallest mountain surrounding the lake. For this reason, you’ll need to have a good level of fitness.

When we do reach the summit you’ll be blown away by the exceptional views. You’ll get a 360 view of the mountains in the area, including Mont Blanc, and of the lake. We’ll take some time here to enjoy the views, take photos and have a snack before heading down again.

The hike will take around six hours in total but trust me, that goes by in no time!

So, are you ready to put your fitness to the test and enjoy awesome views in the Alps? Get in touch today to reserve your spot.

While you’re here, you should also join me on a 1-day traverse of the Dents de Lanfon, another impressive mountain in the region.
