Enjoy lake life in Annecy with this group walking tour that showcases the famous turquoise lake, its château-topped town and the nearby French Alps

Lake Annecy sparkles like a jewel in France’s verdant Haute-Savoie region; its pure, mountain-fed waters a magnet for bathers and boaters. Set in the French Alps, the lake is surrounded by forested peaks and ringed with hiking trails. On its northern shore, the namesake town of Annecy is where you’ll lay your head, the canal-grooved streets earning it the nickname: Venice of the Alps. Ramble cobbled lanes lined with pastel-hued houses once home to Genevan counts and the Dukes of Savoy, while the formidable Château d’Annecy stands guard on a hilltop above. 

Spend your days on slow-paced group walks with scenic picnic stops, circling the lake’s shore which is lined with vast reed beds where rare water birds nest. The tour includes a free day to laze on lakeside beaches laced with alpine air, sail across Annecy’s paper-flat waters on a peaceful boat trip and feast on local cheeses melted into fondue and raclette, accompanied by Savoie and Jura wines in waterfront eateries.

Further afield, the craggy peaks of the French Alps await, where you can follow trails from ski resorts through meadows decorated with wildflowers. Journey to the Bauges Mountains, a UNESCO Geopark, to discover the 1,699-metre-tall Semnoz summit walk, which provides 360-degree views of Lake Annecy and Europe’s highest peak, Mont Blanc. At the heart of Bauges, you’ll find the fortified town of Tamié, where you can stroll through 16 hectares of landscaped grounds dotted with Cistercian monasteries and abbeys.
