Savoie Mont Blanc's choice

A family ride that can be combined with a dip in the Lac des Marches. You will meander through vineyards, small lakes and the undulations of the 'Abymes'. From 2017, an alternative route will allow you to discover the village of Saint Baldoph.

Total elevation gain : 110m
Signed walking trail

On this family-friendly route, take your time as you explore the labyrinth of charming narrow streets in the south of the Chambéry urban area, wedged between vineyards and mountains. The entire ride is under the shadow of the famous Montagne du Granier, whose collapse in 1248 marks the biggest mountain collapse in history. When you arrive at the Lac des Marches, have a drink in a nearby restaurant or go for a dip (unsecured and unsupervised area) in the lake. From 2017, a variant of this route to the north will let you discover Saint Baldoph, its old basins and views over the Belledonnes mountain range.
