Best Summer Activities in Annecy

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Chamonix team

Chamonix in the summer is a real delight. Little known as a summer holiday destination amongst Brits, the whole valley basks in long sunny days with cool fresh mountain air. Whether you just relax and take it easy or want to be sporty, it´s here.

In summer Chamonix transforms itself into a popular 'lakes and mountains' destination in the French alps, with pleasant activities such as hiking, climbing, cycling and horse-riding. If you want something more adrenaline-fuelled there's everything from downhill mountain biking and rafting, to tree adventure parks and paintballing.
