Ride your bike while gliding into the wintry panorama of the Swiss Alps. In this tour, you will be given the opportunity to take a peek at two contrasting worlds: Switzerland's famous global city, and the olden town of Annecy. Spanning for three days, this short adventure will take you along less-traveled paths, giving you an insider's view

This trip can start from the center of Geneva or from Gaillard in the Greater Geneva area, on the French side, where our office is located.  Regardless of your starting point, you will head south, passing through Haute-Savoie within the waterways of Rhone. Farms, vineyards and quaint houses sculpt a pastoral setting for your excursion. On your way back, you will be led onto a different route, offering a glimpse of the towering Saleve Mountains, known fondly as Geneva's Balcony


D1Arrival in Geneva or Gaillard. Ride to Seyssel Short Option: 62 km/38 miles, 690 meters/2,265 ft of climbing; Challenging Option: 70 km/43 miles, 740 meters/2,425 ft of climbing


Depending on your logistics to reach Geneva (driving, flying, or by train), we'll organize your tour from the center of Geneva (at a pre-agreed location), or from our office in Gaillard where free parking is available.

From there, set off on a trip along the Rhône River where you'll pass by quaint Swiss villages, busy farmlands, and local vineyards. As you reach the French border, it's time to make your decision. Perhaps you will choose to explore a little more with the Col de Richmond and the Col de la Biche. The trip is serenely quiet, with the calming sound of chirping birds and ringing cowbells in the background. A downhill ride will take you to Seyssel.

D2Seyssel — Annecy 47 km/29 miles, 1,010 meters/3,315 ft of climbing


Seyssel, a picturesque village by the banks of Rhône River, will allow you to slow down and take a nice break. Use your GPS to get back on track — for those seeking a challenge, you can start your morning with our optional loop from Seyssel, before making your way towards Annecy. Your route today includes a pass by the Fier River-- enjoy the lapping waters of its gorges!

As you go further through the rolling farmlands, you'll arrive in Annecy, an alpine town known for its medieval setting. Stone cobbled streets, pastel-hued buildings, and a maze of canals make it worthy of being called the Venice of the Alps. Bask in its setting; explore by bike, foot or boat, and experience its old-world charm.

D3Annecy — Geneva or Gaillard and Departure 73 km/45 miles, 1,350 meters/4,430 ft of climbing or 67 km/42 miles, 1,270 meters/4,165 ft of climbing


The final day of your tour includes a trip along the pre-alpine massif of Bornes and a refreshing stop in Cruseilles. From there, you’ll climb the Salève, which will give you an unobstructed view of Geneva and its lake. This is your last stop. Give yourself a pat in the back for the job well done - and set off on a new adventure.
