Organise your own short break between 3 and 6 days, booking your own accommodation and meals.

Get hold of the IGN 3430ET map which is on sale this summer at the tourism infoprmation kiosk at le Petit-Bornand-les-Glières.

At each stopping place and from each accommodation or restaurant, there are any number of walks you can do !

Summit of Rochers de Leschaux, the Aiguilles Vertes.

On this adventure, you will discover the key sights of Le Petit-Bornand-les-Glières !

The Plateau de Cenise, and its alpine pastures overlooking the Pic du Jalouvre which is 2408 m high.

Lac de Lessy !  Today the lac de Lessy continues to delight both hikers and anglers alike, thanks to the work done in 2007 to increase thewater levels and restock the fish.

In fact the project was given the Marianne d'Or eco award.

You will walk in the footsteps of the Maquis to reach the Plateau des Glières !

The Glieres Plateau is a memorial place, once used by the Allies during WW2 as a parachute landing area.

In February and March 1944, over 460 resistance fighters gathered on the plateau to take delivery of weaponry destined for the whole of the Haute-Savoie.


Monument Gilioli

The Tom Morel and Pariots trail : in 1944, these were the only access routes to the Plateau des Glières in the winter.

The footpaths were used to provide the "Maquis" with most of their supplies before the Vichy forces put in place a blockade.

You will also discover the Col de Freu and the little mountain hamlet of Bellajoux !
