Water, water, everywhere! Three major features make up this aquatic itinerary. First of all, discover Lake Annecy, considered one of the most beautiful lakes in France. Surrounded by high Alpine peaks, it is also one of the cleanest lakes in the world. Your first day’s riding takes you on a tour of the lake, with impressive views of the surrounding mountains. Linking Lake Annecy and the Rhone River, follow the River Fier as it winds its way westwards. Despite its passage through Lake Geneva, the Rhone is not yet the mighty river it becomes further downstream. Nevertheless it guides you as you make your way between the mountains of the pre-Alps, with a stop in the beautiful medieval town of Pérouges. The route then takes you past the marshy plains of the Dombes and onto your final destination: the Gaulois capital. Welcome to Lyon! The price of this tour includes 6 nights in guesthouses and 2* hotels in double rooms with en-suite facilities, 6 breakfasts, daily baggage transfers, a carefully designed itinerary, navigation app for smartphones and a detailed road book including maps (digital format) and GPS tracks.
