Top 6 of beautiful mountain hikes

Northern Alps

The Croix du Nivolet (Chambéry)

Flanking the cliff, the Croix du Nivolet ovelooks Chambéry. The hike involves some climb but the view is definitely worth it! The view from the top stretches from the Ain to the Alps, including the Chambéry valley.

Park in the Lovettaz car park to shorten the approach and follow the signs. The usual itinerary includes a final section with a few ladders and a life line, however you can make a detour through the Doria Pass so you can keep both feet on the ground !

Crossing the Mont Veyrier crests (Annecy)

Overlooking AnnecyMont Veyrier offers a magnificent view over its turquoise lake. This hike is easily accessible and offers a breath taking panorama of the Annecy valley. Start from the Petit Port if you have half a day to spare or start from the Col des Contrebandiers to shorten this beautiful hike.

Southern Alps

Lac d'Asti (Molines-en-Queyras)

The Lac d'Asti is a glacier-fed lake located in the Queyras, on the Italian border. This high mountain lake is easily accessible from the Agnel Pass road. Its moon-like landscapes, slate gray rocks and turquoise lake make it a very special and unusual place. The hike isn’t signposted but you can follow the GPS track below.

Lac Laramon and Lac Serpent (Le Monetier-Les-Bains/Briançon)

This route is perfect for a sunny Sunday and will show you the full range of colors this place has to offer. A beautiful signposted path will take you through larch forests, past refuges before finally reaching the Lac Laramon and the Lac Serpent. Final surprise before contemplating the stunning view over the Ecrins. If you want to make it last a little longer, you can walk as far as the Lac de Gardiole, the highest of all three lakes.

Pyrenees
