Route Overview

59 tour du lac

Savoring the Annecy Lake Region

The Tour du Lac is one of the region's iconic rides, popular because it is accessible to casual cyclists as well as to highly trained athletes. There's one long hill, to Talloires, but it climbs only about 90 meters over two to three kilometers-- a piece of cake by local standards.

Epic Road Rides

Tour du Lac Léman (AKA cycling around Lake Geneva)

The Tour du Lac Léman is a 175 kilometre cycling route that allows cyclists to complete a full loop of beautiful Lac Léman/Lake Geneva on a well-signed cycle route.

The route offers beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and, to a lesser extent, the lake, and takes you through ancient towns and villages.

If you happen to be in Geneva with your bike (or the time to hire one), you should definitely consider tackling this cycle around Lake Geneva.

John Vicars, and his wife Sue, did just that.

Here he shares his experience of this Lac Leman cycling tour.

Where is Lac Léman?

Lac Léman is the French name for what most non-French speakers know as Lake Geneva. The Swiss city of Geneva sits on the shores of Lac Léman.

Lac Léman is a huge lake that separates Switzerland from northern France. It is the largest natural lake in the Alps and Europe’s second largest freshwater lake. It sits on the course of the River Rhône, with the French Alps to the south and Switzerland’s Jura Mountains to the north.

Broadly speaking, the northern side of the lake belongs to Switzerland (the canons of Geneva, Vaud and Wallis) and the southern side to France (the Haute Savoie region). French is the most commonly used language around the lake.

As well as the mountain vistas, there are impressive towns and cities all around the lake, with highlights including Lausanne, Montreux and Evian-les-Bains, not to mention the medieval Chateau de Chillon. We also enjoyed the beautiful vines you pass when cycling by Lake Geneva – this is Switzerland’s second largest wine-producing region.

Tell us about the Tour du Lac Léman.

Cycle route 46 comprises cycle lanes that allow you to cycle all the way around the lake through both Switzerland and France.

As you would imagine from a route in the bottom of a valley, this Lake Geneva cycle route is a relatively flat course with just over 800 metres of climbing spread over a 170 kilometre distance. It’s known as the Tour du Lac Léman.

GPX Download Terms of use reminder

What prompted you to tackle this route?

I had spoken to French cycling friends who had recommended taking a bike around Lake Geneva. As I was driving north from Spain back to the UK, it was relatively simple to take a detour into Switzerland.

I was intrigued to check out this cycle route that runs for around 100 miles around Lac Léman, through two countries. I was also interested to see how cyclists were integrated with both pedestrians and motor vehicles.

For those living in the UK it’s still something of a novelty to be able to ride straight through manned border controls between different countries! Think breakfast in Switzerland, lunch in France and back for a Swiss dinner!

Tell us what the day was like.

For our Lac Leman bike tour, we were based in Switzerland near the town of Nyon and travelled in a clockwise direction. So we were always riding right by the lake side.

We passed through well-known towns such as Lausanne and Montreux on the Swiss side of the lake, and the spa towns of Evian-les-Bains and Thonon-les-Bains in France. We then crossed back into Switzerland, through Geneva and then back towards Nyon.

We did the loop in late July and it was very hot, around 35 degrees. Yet during this Lake Geneva bike ride I was pleased to note that there were ample opportunities to stop in the many towns and villages on the route, for stocking up with food and drinks.

It should be said that this is not a rough track route adjacent to the beaches and waterfront. Rather, the Tour du Lac Léman route is a marked loop, in the main, that runs either on or adjacent to the main roads that circle the lake. The entire route is on asphalt.

What were your three favourite parts of the Tour du Lac Léman?

The three things that stood out to me were as follows. Look out for these when you cycle Lake Geneva in Switzerland and France!

Swiss cycle lanes

On the Swiss side, the quality of the cycle lanes in terms of both the markings and the smooth surface was impressive. You felt totally safe, even when approaching main road junctions, and it was clear that the cycle lanes are extremely well used by commuters as well as leisure riders. Motorists seemed used to the volume of cyclists and as such were totally integrated. Pedestrians were in the main using paths and tracks nearer to the water’s edge. (For our opinion of the lanes on the French side, see below .)

Alpine views

After Montreux, with about 100km of distance around Lake Geneva to go, there were several kilometres away from the lake through woodland that took us across the River Rhone. These afforded us stunning views of the front range of the northern Alps. You can see the magnificent peaks of Les Jumelles and Les Cornettes de Bise.

Evian-les-Bains

I loved the ride through Evian-les-Bains, home of the famous bottled water and a very classy looking holiday location. It was by far the most glamorous and appealing place on the lake, and I made a mental note to revisit at some point in the future. We found a nice little waterside café for lunch here and enjoyed a cheese tart salad.

Cycling Tour du Lac leman, cyclist coming into Geneva

What were the best and worst parts of the route?

Cycling into geneva.

I thought the best part of our Switzerland cycling tour was the ride into the city of Geneva. The route here is on good quality surfaces, because you are back in Switzerland, cycling close to the beach and water’s edge. This section of the route is also slightly downhill. After nearly 150 kilometres in the saddle, this was very welcome.

Cycling in Geneva seems very popular. I remember following a man in business attire for a couple of kilometres and I don’t think we travelled at less than 30 kph at all!

French cycle lanes

The worst part of our Lac Leman tour was unfortunately the quality of the cycle lanes on the French side. While you could see that the lanes were built with a purpose and as part of an overall strategy in Switzerland, in France they were of inferior quality. At times, they seemed to be something of a ‘bolt on’ to the main road.

That said, in contrast to the Switzerland bike tour, the French side could be more peaceful. It did take us away from the main road on several occasions, and these sections offered the quietest and most isolated part of the loop.

How fit do you have to be to ride the route?

Riding 170km is no mean feat, but for an experienced rider this is not a particularly difficult route as in the main it is relatively flat. That said, it is not a route for a novice rider, as you need to be in the saddle for around 6 hours or so. The timing will depend upon your pace.

The most difficult part of lasting the Lake Geneva distance was the heat.

If you wanted to ride the equivalent of 100 miles in a circular loop, then there cannot be many more picturesque and flatter places to ride. The Tour du Léman also has the added bonus of having plenty of places to stop to eat and drink, plus a well signposted route to follow!

Views of Lac Leman

What sort of logistics are involved?

A cyclo tour of Lac Léman requires some thought. Here’s how we went about tackling our cycle tour at Lac Léman.

Depending on your average speed, you need to allow 6 or so hours in the saddle. Plus an extra hour to cater for lunch and miscellaneous breaks.

If you are planning to negotiate the route in the summer, then beware that the temperatures can reach 35 degrees or more.

The earlier you start the better when it comes to Lake Geneva cycling. We left our hotel, after a hearty breakfast, at 8.30am and enjoyed a good two and a half hours before you could feel the sun burning through the layers of sunscreen.

We planned our lunch stop before we setting out on our Lake Geneva bike tour. The spa town of Evian-les-Bains was our target after 100 kilometres, as we wanted to break the back of the journey before it became really hot. After that I knew we had Geneva and Nyon on the agenda, where there were plenty of opportunities to take on further food and drink. Plus of course the opportunity to cool down for a few minutes.

You can complete the route comfortably on a road bike. We took our own and knew they were in top condition, but we did take spare inner tubes and gas canisters. Fortunately, we didn’t need them!

One thing to note is that you will lose your way unless you follow the GPS route for your Geneva road trip. There are plenty of twists and turns, particularly on the French side, that demand full concentration.

Tell us about your kit choice.

We wore Stolen Goat jerseys and matching shorts as we knew that it was a long ride and needed to be comfortable throughout the day.

We were riding in the middle of a hot summer, so wet/cold weather gear was not required.

How did you organise your nutrition?

We planned our lunch stop, and decided how to replenish before and afterwards, ahead of our Switzerland bike trip. We stopped to refill our bidons every 90 minutes (adding our own electrolyte tablets), and took plenty of energy bars and gels with us.

In the midsummer heat, I cannot stress enough how much you need to drink – even when you’re not feeling thirsty. I worked on the basis of breakfast fuelling me for two hours, then made a mental note to eat something each hour.

We took the remainder of the route on feel: if one of us felt thirsty or hungry, we stopped at the next available village or town. Bizarrely, after 160 kilometres, I had an uncontrollable urge for an ice cream and duly bought one from a little kiosk at the side of the lake in Nyon!

Ice cream stop on the circuit of Lake Geneva

What tips would you give someone wanting to cycle around Lake Geneva?

I think anyone contemplating Switzerland cycling tours around this large lake needs to have completed some prior rides of at least 4 or 5 hours in duration. Whilst the terrain is relatively flat, it still demands concentration, and the ability to know how to refuel.

In any event, take some electrolyte tablets to add to the water you purchase, as well as as much food you can carry – you will eat it, I can guarantee!

You need to be comfortable in riding with traffic. Whilst the cycle lanes are clearly marked, there are areas in the towns where you have to mingle with cars and lorries. This is not a cycle path around the side of the beach.

On the Swiss side, look out for the red cycling route signs with the number 46 in white on a blue square. On the French side, the signs are the green and white bike route signs, with Tour de Léman on a blue square.

The signs are pretty regular and easy to spot on the Swiss side, but it’s harder on the French side. I’d suggest you have someone in your group following a GPX route around the lake. Otherwise, you will probably get lost on the French side, and waste unnecessary time and effort.

If you can, plan to do the loop during months other than June to August. It’s very hot, and in the bottom of the valley there is not much wind to cool you down.

Bear in mind events like the world-famous Montreux jazz festival ; if you decide to visit when that is on, I imagine the roads and hotels would be really busy.

We took our passports with us but didn’t need them. The border crossings are manned, but no-one seemed to be stopped as they passed through the lines.

Language and currency

Everyone we met spoke French and a little English. The currency in Switzerland is the Swiss Franc, but we found they accept the Euro in most establishments.

If you are ever in the area, the Tour de Lac Léman is highly recommended.

A big thank you to John for sharing his experience with us.

Good description. I’m planing this for Summer 2022. What year was this written?

May 2021, but for anyone reading this comment in future, we do try and keep content updated so it may have been updated since then! You can check the date by searching for the article and the date appears on hover.

Hi, the gpx link is broken, is there any chance it could be uploaded somehow.

Fixed! Thanks for flagging this.

I cannot do 175km in one day. How to break it up? where to stay?

There are lots of towns and villages around the lake, so I’d suggest deciding how much you want to ride each day and then book accommodation based on that. Alternatively drop me a line and I can put you in touch with a cycling tour company that can assist.

Planning to do this in June. Anyway to get a guide to go with me? I am planning to ride this in a day.

Hi Tariq, sorry for the slow reply, always best to email us if you’re looking for a quick answer. Feel free to drop me a line at [email protected] if you’re still looking for assistance?

Hello, I enjoyed reading your trip around the Lake. I am not a trained cyclist but a former marathon runner. Due to injury I can’t run at the moment. I will be in Lausanne the last week of August. I am interested in renting a bike and riding it from Lausanne to Montreux. How busy the path in this segment for novice rider to be aware of and what spots you recommended to stop for sightseeing. I can return via train if they let me drop the bike at Montreux station. Thank you!

As always, best to leave early in the morning to avoid the worst of the heat and crowds! Enjoy!

Hello! The gpx file doesn’t work. I want to do this in a few weeks. Could you send it to me? Thanks a lot !

We just got back from a long weekend riding around Morzine / following the TDF and fancied a flat ride so decided to ride the lake, so taking away the epic views of the mountains (as we had first hand experience of them) I must admit I was slightly disappointed with our visit to the lake. I was hoping for amazing view’s of the lake and small little villages and quaint towns, but we found the majority of our day just on ordinary roads with no view of the lake…

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience and sorry to hear the views weren’t as impressive as hoped for. Hope you had an amazing trip nonetheless! Best wishes, Clare

59 tour du lac

   In 2014, we began to host small tours on the west side of Lake Biwa, Shiga prefecture. With your warm assistance, we were blessed to receive so many wonderful guests from around the world. 

 Our tours are focused on experiencing and learning about local people and their culture through activities such as farm to table cooking with the elders of beautiful villages and visiting a quiet local shrine together to feel the belief of the inhabitants. We were honored to receive numerous local awards for offering such tours that are both unique and original. 

 However, in this day and age, it is truly a great challenge to preserve those beautiful countryside sceneries that so charm us. Mountain villages are suffering from decreasing populations and, subsequently, abandoned fields increase each year. 

 It is immeasurable how much history and culture are lost once a house, a village or a field are left and forgotten. As we know, in many cases, local wisdom handed down over generations is far more sophisticated and interconnected than many modern technologies.

 Your choosing to visit this area and finding value in the life of the locals provides us with an opportunity to rethink how and why we need to continue making efforts to keep the environment, history and culture that form the foundation of their pride and enable them to continue to find value in their way of life. 

 The tour also made us realize that it is our important mission to shed light on the daily activities and pure hearts of the many nameless villagers who existed behind the cultural customs that have been passed down from our ancestors in this region. 

 We have witnessed many times guests from all over the world being deeply touched by the humble people of these nameless villages.

 We have seen the joy of acceptance and felt a little sliver of hope for the future, in addition to the remuneration we have received from our guests.

 We do not know to what extent this small tour will contribute to the sustainability of the region, but we hope that it will at least offer a beacon of hope for those who live and work here with pride.

 Therefore, we would like to offer our sincere gratitude for choosing to spend a day with us in a small countryside village instead of visiting a famous tourist attraction.

 We wish to remain a socially and ecologically responsible tour company. It has been our great pleasure to receive many comments from our guests that the tour they have taken with us was the highlight of their trip to Japan. 

 We would like to extend our invitation to you all to spend an unforgettable day in this beautiful Shiga prefecture and for this we will continue to make great efforts. 

 We are eagerly awaiting your visit.
