Tour Itinerary
Day 1

We embark on our crossing to France and our overnight hotel.

Day 2

Continuing our journey through France, we arrive at our hotel late afternoon.

Day 3

La Clusaz
Today we enjoy a day at leisure in our resort. Monday is market day; browse the delightful alpine market and taste the local specialities. In the afternoon we can relax in the town or take the chance to relax and enjoy the hotel's leisure facilities.

Day 4

Annecy
This morning we embark on an excursion to Annecy. Often described as the 'Venice of the Alps', this beautiful lakeside town
is blessed with charming canals and narrow streets, just waiting to be explored. On Tuesday these canals and streets are lined with a bustling market. Our 90-minute guided walking tour gives us an insight into the history of this popular summer resort. Afterwards, we have some free time for lunch before we enjoy an hour-long circular cruise on the lake.

Day 5

Chamonix & Glacier Train
Today we journey to the chic mountain resort of Chamonix. We spend the day here enjoying the town centre and taking in the numerous sights, including the impressive mountain, Aiguille du Midi. After lunch, we board the Train du Montenvers for our return journey up to view the impressive glacier known as the Mer de Glace. Departing from Chamonix, this famous 'rack and pinion' railway brings us to the Montenvers site, for an imposing panorama of the glacier. At the summit, we can descend via cable car and walk within the glacier itself. (Please note: this requires a significant number of steps and is not suitable for those with walking difficulties). In addition, we can visit the museum at the summit known as the Glacorium, which charts the evolution of the glacier over the centuries.

Day 6

Yvoire & Evian
Today we travel to the lakeside village of Yvoire, on the shores of the magnificent Lake Geneva. This charming medieval village has hardly changed over the centuries, with beautifully decorated houses and gardens, and lots of shops and cafés to explore. We take a circular cruise on Lake Geneva from Yvoire's pretty port. In the afternoon, enjoy a drive to the lakeside spa town of Evian (famous for its mineral water) where we spend some time at leisure.

Day 7

After breakfast we retrace our steps back to the overnight hotel.

Day 8

We leave France behind and cross the channel back to England and on towards home.

Please note: Resort Tax: The resort tax is not included and will be collected from each passenger on arrival.
