To whet your adventurous spirit :

Some memorable walks or cycle outings can be enjoyed along some 40 kilometres of Lake Annecy’s perimeter. Also known as the ‘blue lake’, is popular with tourists and is very pretty. There are lots of water-based activities on offer here and you could even go paragliding above the lake!
