If you are staying in Annecy without a car, you can use Semnoz Summer Bus for some fresh mountain air.
9 buses can take you from Annecy to Semnoz mountain:
* every week ends or bank holiday in June
* every day from July 1st until August 31st
The bus is running from 8h40 until 19h and is departing from Annecy Gare Routière quai 11.
The price is 6€ return, with or without a bike.
You can also stop at Station du Semnoz and take a next bus to the top.
For those who have a bike, we will recommend you to be there 10 min before.
If you show your bus ticket to most places in Semnoz, you will get some discounts!
If you need more information about Semnoz, please check an older post about Semnoz.
You can also take the bus at the City Hall bus stop, Auberge de Jeunesse, Belvedere Camping, the deers park, the Puisots, Semnoz ski departure (summer sludge), Rochers Blancs restaurant and the Terminus at les Alpages.
The deers park is nice and kids love it!
Station Semnoz (ski departure in the winter) but in the summer you have some activities for kids, summer sludge, black mountain, Runix, a mini kart and a snack bar.

The Rochers Blancs is a nice restaurant/bar. If you walk back down a little to the next turn, you will have a beautiful view on the lake.
You can also walk to the Alpages.
At the Alpage stop, you will find the Courant D’Ere Restaurant/bar.
From there you can walk to the Alpage farm (and maybe buy some fresh cheese) or walk further to the Semnoz Refuge.
