A responsible territory

The Monts de Genève is the ultimate natural destination that strives to preserve the natural spaces that make this territory so special.

On a wider scale, everyone involved is doing their part to encourage initiatives that foster sustainable tourism and respect for the natural environment.

A responsible destination,

& an unspoilt natural environment



Classified Natura 2000 zone and decrees for the protection of biotopes… The Monts de Genève and the rest of Haute-Savoie boast countless sensitive natural areas.
Some of them are found along the coastline, in the mountains, in wetlands or elsewhere, and all these areas are open to hikers but are protected by regulatory measures.
