Activity description

An old classic by excellence, this long descent in the undergrowth will fulfil the mountain biking needs of all riders from beginners to experts.

Your instructor who is a specialist in Annecy, notably Semnoz will guide and advise you about the techniques you should use and the security protocols you should apply, allowing you to enjoy the trip in a safe and sound environment.  

From the get-go you will witness an exceptional panorama of Lake Annecy and the Alpine mountain ranges of Les Aravis and Les Bauges and of course you’ll also get to see Mont-Blanc in the background, at an altitude of 1700 metres.

Then off you go for the descent towards Lake Annecy (1300 metre negative altitude difference) in the middle of the Semnoz forest. The route combines technical passages and more friendly sections. The terrain is very varied but still very pleasant for riders, in the difficult sections as well as in the easier ones. The majority takes place in the undergrowth, but you will have certain vantage points of Lake Annecy from time to time. 

You’ll alternate between wide slopes, narrow paths and forest tracks helping you appreciate the diversity of the circuit. We guarantee you’ll finish the day with a big smile on your face as you come out of the mountain at the foot of the lake, before going to dip your toes in the water!

It was great i booked for myself and my boyfriend and we were the only ones so had 2 guides, essentially a guide each I am not very confident and have only been MTB a few time whereas my boyfriend is very experienced they were able to take us on separate routes which met so so that both our levels were catered for yet we didnt feel separated and cycling on our own Paul and Adrian were very good and taught us both new skills and improved our riding.

Descente au top!
