Hiking Routes

Throughout the year the Chablais mountains offer a breathtaking backdrop. Most summer hiking routes lend themselves to snow shoeing in the winter.

When the snow has melted in the spring time, the region bursts into life with flowers everywhere, and the deciduous trees to sit next to their evergreen counterparts in equal standing once more.

The spring offers rebirth, the summer basks in the warmth while the autumn is a truely magical time as you watch winter approach as it moves its way down the mountains from the summits to the valley floor over a matter of months like an approaching tide.

What ever time of year you decide to visit us, you will not be disappointed. We have selected a few of the more accessable hiking routes for you to browse through. Whether you choose to join a group, take a guide or just get out into the great outdoors - the unspoilt Chablais Geo Park offers some world class routes and of course - awesome views!
