There is a multitude of climbing opportunities around Annecy. These limestone mountains offer a wide choice of crags and a spectacular range of routes, all of which are easily accessible from our parcs in the area. Chamonix and Mont Blanc are both just 45 miles from Annecy, offering the most concentrated mountaineering area in the world and a major sports climbing venue. North of Annecy, for serious thrill seekers, is the huge via Ferrata in Thrones, renowned as the most difficult in this climbing region. The awe-inspiring Gorges du Fier is definitely worth a visit, where you walk through a narrow canyon on a footbridge attached to the rock face, as the river rushes directly beneath you.
