List of Hikes in Haute-Savoie, Switzerland, and Italy
On this page, you will find a list of 119 hikes in Haute-Savoie, Switzerland, and Italy. The ranking ranges from the easiest itinerary, which is accessible to the greatest number as it’s short and has no particular difficulty, to the hardest one that requires a good training and a certain physical condition.
Among the summer outings, you will also discover a selection of hikes on snowshoes or skis. This is another way to discover the mountain in the winter, away from the hustle and bustle of ski resorts.
Despite the care taken while describing hikes, errors or differences can still remain. For instance, markings and environmental conditions can change and modify the perception of the difficulty.
I would like to remind you that these route cards are suggestions and that I can not be held responsible for any incident or accident.
Before leaving for a hike, even the easiest, you have to learn about the weather and know how to turn back in case of unexpected changes in weather conditions.
