A very nice cruise

Scenic views, prices much lower than in Switzerland, even those dining, you may hop in and off. Enjoy the stopovers.

It is a 42 km ride around the lake, medium difficulty if you choose to go via Annecy then Annecy le vieux, if you go the other way around it is much more difficult. We loved the surroundings - this was the best thing in Annecy.

This is a great way to spend a sunny afternoon, the route around the lake is over 50% cycle path with more cycle path being constructed this spring. Plenty of places to stop and all with beautiful views of the lake.

I decidded to do this on foot. Was unable to talk anybody else to it (it is 40 km, so not a short one). It was during my February stay in Annecy. The weather was good. Started on eastern side of lake. It is a more difficult side. Unfortunately part of it is on the road with traffic (or at... More

My mom was visiting and we did the Omnibus double decker boat tour around the lake. It was early September and the weather was beautiful! The tour of the lake was better than expected and included English language explanation which was great for history. We sat on the upper deck and my mom was camera happy. We met some other... More

A boat ride on the lake is one of our favourite memories. There are small villages dotted all around the lake. Well worth taking the time and spending the money to do this.

Really loved this trip you saw so much more of the landscape and shoreline from the boat. Very good. It's a lovely way to spend some time.

A ‘Compagnie des Bateaux du Lac d’Annecy’ boat had just disgorged its passengers and a fresh mob surged to the gangway. The upturned hand of the Captain prevented boarding. A Group had priority went on first and occupied all the small front deck shepherded by a small but tough looking female Group Leader. The motley then elbowed their way aboard... More

If you are a bit sporty, it is not too difficult. The midway is on a bike path, so it's safe and cool. You're cycling along the lake and it's beautiful with the mountains!

There are 2 boat tours of different lengths. We took the shorter tour which lasted about an hour. We cruised the shore line most of the way down the lake. The lake narrows about 2/3 the way along and that was the point our boat turned and continued cruising the opposite shore back to the dock. The boat we were... More
