73000 Chambéry, France
Croix du NivoletA nice hike to the top of this 1500 meter mountain leads you to the Croix du Nivolet which overlooks Chambery in order to keep the residents safe.
As you are hiking you will experience amazing views of the town, the Alps and the largest lake in France, Lac du Bourget.
If it is a nice day you can also get up close and personal to the wild life along the trail. You may also have an opportunity to watch paragliders flying in between the mountains. Definitely a must see that you may not find in a tour book.
