Thanks for your rating
Mount Salève is a paradise for lovers of nature, wildlife and flora and for those seeking the pure mountain air. From here you may also enjoy a unique view of Geneva, the harbour, the lake and the Jura mountains in the background. Then again, its southeastern side offers an incomparable view of the Alps and Mont Blanc.

Paradise not only for those who have come to relax, Mount Salève is also the "place to be" for sports fans, including hikers, rock climbers, mountain bikers, paragliders, hang gliders and, in winter, skiers.
