Alpine Route Tour Day 2: Geneva -> Yvoire -> Chatel

Begin your trip across Switzerland with a boat ride to France. The pier is a short walk from our hotel. From there you’ll take a lake cruise to the medieval city of Yvoire. We suggest packing a lunch to eat on the cruise so that you can start riding upon arrival.

You will bike from Yvoire to Thonon to begin your first climb. You have got 950 meters over the course of 45 kilometers, a nice, gradual climb to get your legs in the mood for things to come.

You’re in the French department of “Haute Savoie” and this region is known as Chablais. The road follows the Vallée d'Abondance, an appropriate name given the vast resources. Winter tourism is big, but in the spring and summer, the towns may seem rather sleepy. You've got the roads and scenery to yourself right now.

You will keep climbing until Chatel, a popular ski village near the peak of the climb.

Have a shower, sauna or swim before tucking into a French mountain meal downstairs.
