BILLETTERIE

This is the perfect opportunity to discover the smallest nature reserve in Haute-Savoie. You will follow in the footsteps of the ranger, who will reveal its many secrets.


The nature reserve of the Dranse Delta extends from the Dranse to the shores of Lake Geneva. A preserved area, unspoilt, close to the town. From the nature reserve car park, you will take the path that leads to the "Lake St Disdille". Many birds take refuge and nest on the islands in the middle of this body of water. You will then enter a more forested area: below, there is an alluvial forest composed mainly of poplars and willows. This is the kingdom of small passerines: tits, warblers, dunnocks... Arriving at the mouth of the Dranse and the shores of the lake, you can observe herons, goosanders, sandpipers, little plovers.
