Haute-Savoie is a popular alpine region where travellers can enjoy thrilling cities, scenic natural features and outdoor fun. One of the most prominent destinations here is the city of Annecy, which offers historic sites and an overall picturesque setting on Lake Annecy. Enjoy the famous gardens, the many historical monuments, and the classic architectural designs while in Annecy. Plus, you may want to stop by the quaint nearby villages as well, such as Veyrier du Lac and Talloires.

In the Lake Geneva area, you’ll find stunning landscapes and picture-perfect alpine villages like Abondance and Evian les Bains. Several mountains in the area, including Mont Blanc, offer adventurous ski opportunities at resorts like Chamonix and Avoriaz. However, travellers visiting outside of the winter season can also enjoy several well-maintained hiking paths. If you drop by Sallanches, you’ll find a charming village between the mountains and several clear-blue-water lakes.
