The largest nature reserve in Haute-Savoie, the nature reserve of Sixt-Passy extends over a vast territory. Located near Samoëns, it benefits from the presence of two imposing glacial cirques, those of Fer-à-Cheval and Fonts, from which spring impressive waterfalls. An ideal natural setting to discover during family hikes.
The largest nature reserve in Haute-Savoie, the Nature Reserve of Sixt-Passy is an exclusively limestone world with a great variety of forms shaped by erosion: cracks, lapiaz, etc. Its 9,000 hectares cover the mountain, subalpine, alpine and nival levels from the banks of the Giffre 900 meters to the summit of Buet culminating more than 3000 meters. This altitudinal amplitude, associated with the diversity of environments encountered (wetlands, mixed forests, cliffs, lawns, …), offers contrasting environments with a rich and diverse flora and fauna.
