Roc des Boeufs

25 May 2021 | by Pierre-Alexandre

The Roc des Boeufs is located at the northern end of the Massif des Bauges on the western shore of Lake Annecy. The walk to the Roc des Boeufs should be done in dry weather as the climb through the forest can be very muddy and the arrival at the summit can quickly become very slippery.


Le Parmelan

9 May 2021 | by Pierre-Alexandre

Parmelan is one of the must-sees of Haute-Savoie. Visible from the surroundings of Annecy, its imposing cliffs dominate and make it a panoramic viewpoint that will amaze any hiker. The ascent by the Grand Montoir is delicate


Aiguilles de Baulmes

14 September 2020 | by Pierre-Alexandre

Aiguilles de Baulmes is a group of crests located in the Jura massif in the district of Jura-nord vaudois. Culminating at an altitude of 1558 m, Aiguilles de Baulmes are a great classic of the region. Indeed, the path along the ridge offers a magnificent 180° panorama of the Alps, Lake Neuchâtel


Pointe de Talamarche

12 September 2020 | by Pierre-Alexandre

Pointe de Talamarche is a summit of the massif des Bornes culminating at an altitude of 1852m. Much less well known than the popular Tournette, Pointe de Talamarche is nevertheless a great idea


The Moléson

22 June 2020 | by Pierre-Alexandre

The Moléson is an emblematic mountain of the Fribourg Pre-Alps offering a prime hiking destination. Culminating at an altitude of 2002 m, the Moléson is very recognizable by its shape


Mont Clocher

1 June 2020 | by Pierre-Alexandre

Mont Clocher is a summit of the Beaufortain Massif culminating at an altitude of 1976m. Located in the commune of Hauteluce, Mont Clocher is the object of a hike for the greatest number. Indeed, the route is devoid of difficulties and it offers a very wide panorama of the peaks of Savoie and Haute-Savoie


Aiguillette des Posettes

16 October 2019 | by Pierre-Alexandre

Aiguillette des Posettes is a classic of the Mont-Blanc Massif. Located at the eastern end of the Chamonix valley, Aiguillette des Posettes is a choice hike that will delight both young and old. The panorama served at the top is one of the most extensive in the massif


Mont d’Or (from Vallorbe)

1 June 2019 | by Pierre-Alexandre

Highest point in the Doubs department, Mont d’Or is a peak of the Jura Massif. Located a few miles from the Franco-Swiss border, Mont d’Or naturally stands out as the perfect location for a beautiful family hike with its panoramic view of the Lake Geneva Basin, the Alps and the nearby mountains


Creux-du-Van

7 May 2019 | by Pierre-Alexandre

The Creux-du-Van is a rocky cirque located in the Massif du Jura in the canton of Neuchâtel. 1.4 km wide and approximately 200 m high, the Creux-du-Van is one of the most picturesque sites in French-speaking Switzerland with its impressive walls sculpted by the erosion caused 18,000 years ago


Praz Vechin and Col de l’Arpettaz

7 January 2019 | by Pierre-Alexandre

Located in the Aravis Range, Praz Vechin is a peak overlooking the Col de l'Arpettaz nestled at the foot of Mont Charvin. The term "Arpettaz" comes from the French word "alpe" which refers to a mountain pasture. The itinerary I propose here starts from the hamlet of La Penne


Tête de Lindaret

10 October 2018 | by Pierre-Alexandre

Tête de Lindaret is a summit of the Chablais Massif, located in the south of the protected natural area of Mont de Grange. The toponym Lindaret limitaris meaning something "that makes limits or borders". Of intermediate difficulty, the itinerary I propose here describes a loop that starts from the Lindarets
