Gave us a totally different and very enjoyable perspective of Annecy, the mountains and the lake itself. The lake is about 13km long and about 4km wide with small towns/hamlets dotted around. The number of cruises daily allow time to disembark at any of the stops to reboard later. There are three cruises daily with five during July and August... More

Only €13 for an hour on this beautiful lake. English information is provided. Don't forget to take a camera. Beautiful views of the surrounding mountains

We took the 1 hour boat trip. Very good narrations in English and French give you a real feeling for the lake and its history.

The boat trip around the lake, and the two hour trip flies by, is a wonderful calming experience. The mountains, the crystal clear water, the beautiful homes along the way all make for an unforgettable experience.

We are mountain bikers, but had read on tripadvisor that the ride by the lake is nice so we decided to rent bikes and go. The weather was good(late April). You can bike by the lake all the way from Annecy to Ugine which is aprox 35 km one way, we stoped before that at Doussard and back. Aprox 45... More

Done it with friends, and it was really unforgettable. Every part of the lakes are beautiful and the surrounding have been well preserved. I would recommend it in Annecy.

Our tour group enjoyed the boat trip even with sprinkles. We sat inside because it was cold and too windy. Really beautiful sights along the shore. Some English narration but not as much detail as I would have liked.

This Lake Tour is the best thing to do in Annecy. Duration one hour is enough to go around the Lake of Annecy and to see its fantastic views. The mountains falling down right to the waters of lake looks absolutely amazing. You'll never forget this place.

The lake is wonderful,you feel like you are at the seaside with lots of sailing boats and power boats too.The great thing to do is to ride a bike along the lake .Most of the lake has a nice and safe bike path and is nice to stop here ad there to visit the little villages along it.
