I started in the city of Annecy and skated all the way around the lake in the clockwise direction, a little less than 40 km or 25 miles. I skated on the public road on the east side of the lake (this page), then returned to the city by skating on a paved bicycle path on the southwest side of the lake (next page). Annecy is in the French Alps, less than an hour's drive south of Geneva.

the ancient city of Annecy, at the northwest corner of the lake -- a delightful place to walk around, even without skates
