After Thonon-les-Bains, the ViaRhôna cycle route leads you along a mix of cycle tracks and quiet roads, through villages in the Bas-Chablais area. Don’t miss the stunning medieval villages of Yvoire and Nernier right by Lake Geneva. There are numerous other short detours to make to little ports and beaches, great for a dip. Reaching Chens-sur-Léman, while awaiting the continuation of the ViaRhôna cycle route further west into France, we suggest you carry on along the signposted cycle route into Switzerland leading you as far as Geneva.

The route

Leaving Thonon, you follow a series of cycle tracks and quiet roads, sticking close to Lake Geneva. The route is provisional on the stretch between Songy and La Fattaz (bypassing Sciez). At La Fattaz, you join a cycle track running beside the D25 road up to Excenevex. Between Yvoire and Chens-sur-Léman, you cycle on roads.
