A responsible destination,

& an unspoilt natural environment

Salève, Voirons, Vuache

The 3 mountains

The Monts du Genevois is the ultimate natural destination just a few minutes from the centre of Geneva in Haute-Savoie, where you are guaranteed an unforgettable experience in the mountains!
You will be blown away by the three mountain ranges of Salève, Voirons and Vuache, each one with its own special characteristics.

The protected


The Monts du Genevois mountains are brimming with protected natural areas.
These areas are worthy of special care and attention. Various protective measures are in place to limit the impact on these places, such as a classified Natura 2000 zone and decrees for the protection of biotopes.

Management of

natural areas

The people in charge of protecting our mountains.

Salève Syndicat Mixte (joint association) and the planning association for Le Vuache & Annemasse urban community are in charge of protecting remarkable natural environments, organising events related to the environment and awareness campaigns.



Classified Natura 2000 zone and decrees for the protection of biotopes… The Monts du Genevois and the rest of Haute-Savoie boast countless sensitive natural areas.
Some of them are found along the coastline, in the mountains, in wetlands or elsewhere, and all these areas are open to hikers but are protected by regulatory measures.
