2 days through small lakeside ports and spa towns
Saint-Gingolph, the starting point of the itinerary, is located on the banks of Lake Geneva, on the French side. A link between France and Switzerland, the lake's microclimate favours the development of southern vegetation. The ViaRhôna starts along the French shoreline where you can admire the beauty and vastness of the lake, as well as its villages and spa towns including Evian-les-Bains, Thonon-les-Bains, and the medieval village of Yvoire. A beautiful stretch of the ViaRhôna recommended for experienced cyclists!
