Hiking from Samoens in Haute-Savoie

But that adventurers and other regulars of the mountain hike are reassured: they will also find challenges of their length!

Mont-Blanc offers itself to you!

Do you want to discover the GR5 – Alps? Samoëns is the leg of the hiking trail in 40 stages. We offer two ideas for route stays, praised by GTA, Grande Traversée des Alpes: hiking and canyon in Haute-Savoie. Mont-Blanc and all the richness and biodiversity of the Alps are here for you! The tour of Haut-Giffre on foot is realized by small steps. This course, decorated with mountain huts, lets you discover all facets of this jewel of the Alps: the valley, the forest, the mountain meadows, the mountain paths, the lakes …

Hiking in the Alps with your family

Another idea for a route: the hike of the Lacs aux Dames at Lac Bleu. This walk is ideal for families. It takes you along the banks of the Giffre between Samoens and Morillon in a wide forest path. Finally enjoy the exceptional panoramas of the Alpine massif, thanks to the opening of the ski lifts in the summer at Samoens 1600. Another idea for a family outing. A ride that also offers you a wonderful view of Mont Blanc, since the Tête-des-Saix.
