What you'll do

We meet at the main train station (Gare Cornavin) and hop on one of the public trams and busses. After a short ride to the French border, we walk about 5 mins to the cable car which departs every 15 minutes and takes us up to the Mont Saleve, to 1.100m. From there, we start with an easy hike up to the top of the Salève 1.379m while we are passing a Buddhist monastery. We will enjoy the magnificent view over Geneva and the French Alps. From there we will walk slightly downwards until we reach our final hiking path away from the main tourist locations. We will hike up and down, partly along the ridge of the Saleve on a narrow path and stop at a big painting on the rock. In the end, we will have a traditional swiss picknick with original swiss sausage (cervelat), swiss cheese, bread or baguette and a glass of wine. For a detailed view -> https://youtu.be/BRdxV7hXJzs I am open to any question and would like to tell the story of Geneva, the surrounding Alps and the area around. Attention: This hike is just for experienced hikers with steady feet and without fear of heights. You should be fit enough to hike up to 3 hours and approximately 450m of altitude gain

Where you'll be

Even though the Saleve is in France, it is known as the 'balcony of Geneva' with great vistas of the city, the lake and the jet d'eau. I enjoy exploring off-the-beaten track paths and can show you interesting areas away from the typical tourist locations. We will spend the day on the back and on the west side of the Saleve, switching from good trails to narrow paths along the ridge. For a detailed view check out my video -> https://youtu.be/BRd
