It would be a shame not to use your campervan rental in Haute-Savoie to flirt a little with the Swiss border. One way to do this is to wander along Lake Geneva, making sure to pass through the beautiful communes of Evian and Thonon.
Hit the snowy slopes in winter or seek out the fresher climates up high in summer. There’s never a bad season to hire a van in Haute-Savoie. Whether you’re into hiking, paragliding or mountain biking, or fancy a more tranquil outing on one of the region’s lakes, there is something for everyone here!
A campervan hire in Haute-Savoie goes hand-in-hand with adventure, naturally. We must admit that the scenery does a lot of the work. But by no means should you feel obliged to go full throttle! If it’s rest you’re looking for, a few days of lakeside lounging will do you a world of good, and there’s certainly no shortage of gorgeous spots.
Start with Annecy and its lake, a location that lives up to its reputation. Once you’ve fallen for the dazzling charm of the old town, the shores of the lake are only a few steps away. Whether it’s swimming, paddle surfing, pedalo or a boat trip you fancy, there’s no shortage of activities available. If you’re looking for something calmer, a few minutes in your rental campervan will take you to a more secluded spot. And for the experienced climbers out there, an exceptional panoramic view of the lake can be seen from the summit of the nearby La Tournette. Guaranteed to blow your mind!
Annecy isn’t the only place to satisfy your lakeside desires. Van hire in Haute-Savoie also presents the perfect opportunity for a Swiss getaway. Make your way around Lake Geneva, push on to Neufchâtel (and its lake), pay a visit to the lovely cities of Lucerne (located on the shores of Lake Lucerne) and Thun (which also has its own lake), admire (or climb!) the famous Mont Cervin before returning via the charming Montreux, Thonon and Evian on the French side.
Those who would rather aim for the altitude will be just as happy, because hiring a campervan in Haute-Savoie includes, of course, Savoie. And its peaks. Especially its peaks! There is no shortage of hikes in the region, especially around Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval where you can visit the cirque of the same name (the largest mountain cirque in the Alps), the Cascade du Rouget waterfall, aptly nicknamed the Queen of the Alps. Or stop by the Désert de Platé, a rocky plateau that offers you a breathtaking view of the Mont Blanc massif. Whatever your passion, whatever your desire, a van rental in Haute-Savoie guarantees you will leave with lungs full of fresh air and a head full of memories.
