Semnoz was the site of a summit climb in the 2013 Tour de France. At 1, 699 m (5,574 ft) above sea level, it was a feat for any professional cyclist. Fortunately, you can master the mountain by car and visit the summit’s highest point for spectacular views of the surrounding peaks on the horizon and the villages dotting the land below your feet.

  • A must go if you love a good view. We took a taxi up to the top, wish we could have stayed longer. Great spot for picnic and champagne in summer.

  • The view from the top is incredible, you can see for miles and the air is so clear. We decided to go back at night to do some stargazing which was amazing. On a clear night you can see Saturn, Jupiter, and the milky way.... Be warned though, at night the D41 road attracts some crazy drivers who think it's some kind of rally course. We took the D241 on the way back and it was much quieter.
  • Peak.. cold.. calm.. Scenic.. Winter jackets are much needed atleast to have a visit there. You can drive directly to the place, open place.
