Monts de Genève

Between city and mid-mountain

The Monts de Genève area contains three mountain ranges: Salève, Vuache and Voirons. 29 communes are adjacent to Annemasse and Saint-Julien-en-Genevois, its two main towns. These little villages and hamlets give this destination its natural, authentic character.

A combination of plains, verdant landscapes and mountains make for a beautiful area.

Land of leisure

The playground is immense.

Whether in the air, paragliding, parachute jumping, in a helicopter ride, a cable car or even a flight simulator, the thrills and spills are guaranteed.
On foot along the hiking paths or by bicycle along the Via Rhôna are both equally good ways to soak up the nature. A breath of fresh air just outside Geneva.

There are also unique facilities for some unforgettable experiences. Vitam, the largest aquatic leisure centre in Haute-Savoie, casinos, theme parks, treetop adventure parks and other unique moments with The Little Country and its famous Father Christmas’ Village.

A real area for recreation!
