Passy (Plaine Joux)
Stroll the rolling mountain
The Fiz mountain range has views of Mont Blanc deep in Haute-Savoie’s biggest nature reserve (Sixt-Passy Reserve). The route takes you into a protected natural setting where water (lakes, waterfalls) meets mineral (Platé desert) against a backdrop of heady peaks. This is the perfect opportunity to meet hotel managers and tickle your tastebuds with local produce.
