The Grand Tour of
Lac du Bourget
The Great Cruise around Lake Aix-Les-Bains
Duration: 4 hours
With family or friends, come and discover the largest glacial lake in France and tour the Lac du Bourget with the Canotiers. We will tell you about its history, especially the remains of its lake cities, dating back 4000 years and classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Without forgetting the more recent history of Hautecombe Abbey, the poet Alphonse de Lamartine or the development of thermalism. We will also make you discover its natural caves, only accessible by boat, and admire its fauna and flora, very protected.
At your own pace, and according to your wishes, you will sail or stop the boat near deserted beaches, creeks with warm and transparent waters, at the foot of a castle or a Savoyard village, near the wild coast, near a pontoon to enjoy an ice cream or a refreshing drink, before setting out again towards the open sea.
