* Reach the summit of the tallest mountain around Lake Annecy

* See the spectacular views of the surrounding mountains like Mont Blanc

* Enjoy the satisfaction of completing a physically challenging climb


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.

About the guide

Mountain Guide

After living for 20 years in the south Alps I moved in Annecy, here I like to be close to many world famous ski resorts... La Clusaz, Chamonix, Megève, Flaine.

In winter I like to find the best ski conditions according to my guest level and the mountains conditions. I also enjoy crossing to Italia for a good powder session or climbing an icefall.

In summer I am guiding around Chamonix but also rockclimbing and canyoning.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
