Annecy, a sublime scenery between lake and mountains.
Annecy is situated in the North of the French Alps, 5O km away from Chambéry and 40km from Genève. From turquoise water of the Lac d'Annecy to often-snow-capped mountains, the city of Annecy is certainly one of the most beautiful French cities, combining a real city life with the outdoors.
Around Annecy, you will find a plethora of extreme and outdoor sports to do. Lake activities include wakeboarding, swimming, kitesurfing, windsurfing and kayaking. The lake's water is crystal clear and not too cold during spring and summer time. The lake shore and surrounding countryside is great for roller-blading, mountain biking and trekking. There are also great rock climbing spots around, on the nearby cliffs, and an active local paragliding scene.
Go mountain biking in Le Semnoz, famous for its nature trails. Go rock climbing, trekking or paragliding in Le massif des Aravis et le massif des Bornes (Mont Veyrier, Parmelan, Tournette, Dents de Lanfon) at the East of Annecy or in the Genevois, in the North.

Magnifique, supert vue du lac et de la montagne
Mountains and water, what else?
Absolutely breath taking! Beautiful views!
Beautiful place on top of the mountain. There are also nice restaurants with amazing view.
Veyrier du lac
Col de forclaz lake annecy France
The site was pretty hard to find. The point on the digital map was not placed at the right spot, so we were looking and searching for the right place... Once we've found it it was all perfect!
Magnifique ! Réellement magique !
Annecy! What else can be said!
The Angon canyon was incredible, many tourists go to visit it, but to be in it was amazing.
Lieu idéal pour l’activité. Gros dénivelé, végétation et vue sur le lacs à certains endroits
Fantastic view, a little scary being perched on the edge of a mountain awaiting take off.
Magnifique spot, parfaitement adapté au paddle
Wonderful to fly over lake Annecy.
The area is easily accessible. Just a short drive to the rendezvous spot and then a short but steep walk to the start of the course. There is also a short but steep walk from the finish back up to the car park
Beautiful and breathtaking, Annecy is the perfect place with the mountains and clear lake!
We actually ended up going to Montim canyon instead and the instructor said that was way better for jumps and slides so we got very lucky!
Gorgeous views of the lake from the jump-off point. A must see!
Très joli endroit
Quoi de mieux que le lac d’Annecy comme spot?
Génial on se croirait dans un autre lieu
Beatiful area and view s howerver as a not very confident mountain biker a guide is definitely needed in this area would have been very easy to get lost no signs or indication how difficult each trail is.
Incroyablement beau ! Le bleu du lac, les sapins...
Spot au top aussi
Vue à couper le souffle, sensation de liberté rare
Eau froide, belles cascades!
spot easy to found nice place
The spot is more like a dream .. perfect !!
Covered the mountains and the lake !
Très bel endroit
Un très beau panorama sur le lac
Beautiful, kind of secluded
Descente au top! Entre Jura et Lac d'Annecy. Arrêts le long de l'activité qui vallent le détours.
Perfect spot for take off and landing. Loved it.
Annecy is Annecy an amazing place with amazing scenery
The jump was good. However there was no much sensation and that was not as fun as expected.
The Annecy lake is beautiful
Très beau canyon surtout le départ de la cascade
Très jolie et eau à bonne température
Beautiful place to fly
Beautiful views on both the mountains and Annecy lake; Ideal!
Annecy is the best place
Vu magnifique. ...
Le lac d'annecy par temps ensoleillé est le spot idéal.
Annecy j'adore !
A l'image de l'activité, magique.
Bien adapté à une initiation
It was very difficult to find the spot.
