The closest airports to Lake Annecy are Geneva (50minutes transfer time) and Chambery, we can arrange airport transfers from both theses airports. For exclusive bookings we can arrange a fixed collection time. For individuals and small groups transfer times are determined by the flight times of everyone we collect on that day but 5pm is the deadline for a transfer. For example, if your flight lands at 10am and we have other arrivals landing at 4.30pm, the transfer is likely to set off at 5pm.
What is NOT included?
Return Flights from the UK to Geneva and Chambery are typically below £100 (Prices in 2013) and rarely more than £120. There are regular flights from many UK airports to Geneva with Easyjet also try www.skyscanner.net.
We do not include any form of insurance as part of our price but you must have adequate and valid travel insurance and it is a condition of accepting your booking that you obtain insurance cover and provide us with a copy of your policy. We strongly recommend travel insurance that covers medical costs, rescue (including mountain rescue) and repatriation in the event of an emergency. In addition we advocate having suitable cover for baggage and effects, personal liability and cancellation should you become ill and are unable to travel with us. Most good travel insurance policies will cover these items but please ensure that you are covered for your specific trek, climb or any activities that you will participate in. We find that Snowcard or Global Travel Insurance provide provide the best policies for adventure travellers.
Is This Trip for You?
This trip includes Via Ferrata (or protected scrambling) on high mountain routes and Canyoning so you will need an average level of physical fitness. There are steep ups and downs on gravel or rocky terrain and the average ascents/ descents per day are around 800m. Some Via Ferrata sections lead up/down vertical rock faces, which require good upper body and arm strength.
No previous climbing or Via Ferrata experience is required.
