“Relaxing way to take in the scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

The boat trip around the lake, and the two hour trip flies by, is a wonderful calming experience. The mountains, the crystal clear water, the beautiful homes along the way all make for an unforgettable experience.

“Amazing bike ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We are mountain bikers, but had read on tripadvisor that the ride by the lake is nice so we decided to rent bikes and go. The weather was good(late April). You can bike by the lake all the way from Annecy to Ugine which is aprox 35 km one way, we stoped before that at Doussard and back. Aprox 45 km with return. Easy ride flat in the nature, the road is only for bikes and rollers so no danger with cars. It is a good way to visit all the coast on the left side of the lake (as you look at the map). The other side of the lake we drove past it and stoped at some beaches. If you go in the summer visit Menthon palace.

“Beautiful scenery, to do by foot or bike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Done it with friends, and it was really unforgettable. Every part of the lakes are beautiful and the surrounding have been well preserved. I would recommend it in Annecy.

“Beautiful even in the rain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Our tour group enjoyed the boat trip even with sprinkles. We sat inside because it was cold and too windy. Really beautiful sights along the shore. Some English narration but not as much detail as I would have liked.
