Day Trip: Salève


I am not a very sporty person, however I do enjoy a little hike in the nature from time to time (effort free, promise) ; specially when there is not a lot of wind and tons of sun! If you are looking for a nice activity on a Sunday morning this is the perfect thing for you.

Just 15 min away from Geneva in the  french countryside you have the Téléférique du Salève, it is situated at  Étrembières very close to the Swiss border. There you can take the cabins up the Salève to enjoy a beautiful view of the Leman lake and the panoramic view of Geneva and its surroundings. Once on top you can start a small hike to the highest point of the Salève to have an even better view.  Check their webpage for more information about the hiking roads and the weather.(Téléférique du Salève).

The price to go up and then down is 11.3€. However if you have a discount card or planning to do a single way, there are different prices.

If you are looking for a food expedition you can do that too! On top, after the arrival of the cabins there is a gastronomical restaurants called Horizon. After a 20min walk you have L’Observatoire which is more familiar type of food and also you have another place to have snacks and drinks. My favorite one is still a good homemade picnic which you can enjoy outside admiring the sumptuous view!

I hope you will enjoy your hiking experience and let me know if you have done it before! Have a happy hiking!
