Rivers, Lakes and Mountains: Geneva to Geneva via Annecy – 2 nights/3 days
|Day 1: Arrival in Geneva. Ride to Seyssel. (Short option: 70 km/43 miles, 876 meters/2,874 ft of climbing; Challenging option: 97 km/60 miles, 2,049 meters/6,722 ft of climbing)
Your new venture begins outside of Switzerland's famous city, Geneva, that is conveniently reached via a short tram ride. Our staff will meet you there to brief you on your itinerary and outfit you with a reliable bike. You can choose between the shorter route or the longer excursion. Don't worry; you will have plenty time to make a decision. 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.
|Day 2: Seyssel to Annecy (39 km/24 miles, 793 meters/2,602 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, your route including 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.
|Day 3: Annecy to Geneva and Departure (71 km/44 miles, 1,339 meters/4,393 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. Now it's time to get back to the Swiss metropolis to retrieve your belongings, and set off on a new adventure.
