Hiking, parasailing, there are a lot of things you can do on this mountain! Easy enough to talk for families on the easy route and offers more challenging route for those who like to hike for exercise. It's also not so far away that it takes up your whole day.

A low altitude walk up a small mountain to see Geneva from a different angle. The walk up is steep but as you're at low altitude you should feel less challenged than if you were starting the Via Ferrata de la Tour D'Aï.

You can cycle up and you can parapente down.

Wonderful view of Geneva and the mountains around. On a good day you can also see Mont Blanc too. Easy to get to from the city, a great way to spend a day.

Located south of Geneva, this is the cities backdrop when looking from the other side. It is a pleasent hike up to the top, with vies of the whole city. There are plenty of spots for a nice picnic. Biking is possible, but you should be skilled.. it's quite steep coming down. There is a gondola to the top for those who prefer not to hike, but whats the fun in that!
