  • The spinner is a mountain that dominates the Annecy Lake, it is also the 2nd highest mountain of the chain of Aravis. Several roads lead there: the tourist (mountain highway) from the cottage of the Aulp; the a little sportier since Serraval (stiffer and less rushed) and the sportier and with the most vertical drop (person on the way but almost not shown) from Montremont Valley. But still atop the Chair and its wonderful view of the Lake! Avoid tong and converse (déjà vu) or platform (view also), enjoy the chamois and other jackdaw! Allow between 3 to 4 hours at a minimum or 6: 00 to 7: 00 by Montremont descent or understood loop. Watch out for the younger children of the not easy passages or difficult! To do and see!

  • For lovers of beautiful views and hiking, perfect. Allow 4 hours climb from the chalet of Aulp.

  • A great ballad, certainly long and steep, but with still a view along the way. Requires having a good shape when same, but accessible to children not fearful/fearless. (17km and + 1700D) The day we went there, it was not very nice (not the usual cagniar) and c "is by this time that I recommend this ballad! The view from above is splendid and we do forget some difficult passages
