The Rhône-Alpes region

Saint Gervais is situated at 850m, standing in the shadow of Mont Blanc with its snow capped peaks all year round. The town is typically French with excellent restaurants and friendly bars. The local boulangeries and shops provide wonderful food for you to savour.

The area boasts a vast ski area. The evasion ski pass offers 500km of slopes. In the summer there are an array of activities from the extreme thrill seeker to the more relaxed rambler.

It provides a central base for visiting the famous town of Chamonix and the lakeside town of Annecy as well as crossing the border into Italy.


The area provides arguably some of the best walks anywhere in the world. Walks range from low level strolls to ascents of Mont-Blanc. The summit of Mont Joly is the area's local peak and stands at 2525 metres. The Tramway du Mont Blanc, a rack and pinion railway takes you to the Nid d'Aigle. From here you can follow the Bionassay glacier back down to the valley or walk up to the Tête Rousse refuge which lies at over 3000 metres.

For a more casual walk, take a trip to Chamonix, from here take the cable car to the Aiguille du Midi at 3842 metres and enjoy the views over the Chamonix Valley. On the descent get off at the mid station and follow the Grand Balcon Nord down to the ice caves of the Mer de Glace. From here you can walk or take the Montenvers railway back into Chamonix and enjoy a beer at one of its many lively bars.

If it is mountain biking you enjoy, the area provides a fantastic opportunity to ride the Diamant Vert (Green Diamond circuit). The circuit offers 90km of marked trails with 5380 metres of downhill. A lift pass (July and August) will give you access to 11 lifts to take you up hill. The circuit will take you through the villages of Megeve, Saint Nicolas de Véroce, Demi-Quartier, Combloux, La Giettaz, Flumet, Praz sur Arly, Notre-Dame de Bellecombe and Les Contamines Montjoie and of course Saint Gervais.

White water rafting/canyoning, in nearby Chamonix. Experience the thrill of white water rafting, you can also experience the thrill of canyoning near Megeve, Annecy or across the border in Italy. Paragliding - There are many companies in the area that allow anyone to experience the thrill of paragliding. After a few steps you and your instructor will be soaring through the skies above the Alps, experiencing the amazing scenery.
