Come with me on a day of hiking in the Haute-Savoie as we journey to the summit of Talamarche. This peak is nestled in among other mountains in the Lake Annecy area. A hike to the top will give us some excellent views of those surrounding mountains and lakes.

We’ll meet in Annecy to begin this hike and travel together to the start point. Talamarche sits at 1,850 meters above sea level which might sound like a lot, but this is actually a pretty achievable hike.

The trail is well defined and maintained. The scenery alternates between steeper more mountainous sections and more gradual, green pastures, giving you some time to catch your breath.

Along the way, you’ll be able to see some local wildlife like mountain goats and appreciate the pretty wildflowers. The sights of the other mountains in the area are also spectacular.

When we reach the top we’ll take time to enjoy the lovely views, take photos and have a rest. We’ll then begin the descent.

All in all, you’ll spend around five and a half hours hiking. It’s great physical exercise but nothing too strenuous.

Reserve your spot today to join this great hike in nature and we’ll be waiting for you in the mountains

While you’re in the area, be sure to take a long at my day hike to the summit of the highest peak around Lake Annecy, La Tournette.

About the 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.

Sublime journée d immersion . Activité à réaliser encadré car la mer de glace est un magnifique environnement qui demande des connaissances et non l aventure. Gauthier nous a parfaitement planifié cette journée, de nombreux contacts nous ont permis de nous informer et de nous rassurer. Notre guide, Thibaut à été très très patient et emphatique envers moi . Tous nos remerciements à Gauthier et Thibaut Organisation et activité à vous recommander VIVEMENT sans hésitation.
