GR5
The GR5 is an incredible hiking route that  starts in the Netherlands, crosses Belgium and Luxembourg before crossing France from north to south. It is part of the European walking route E2. This trail is famous for its route through the French Alps from Lake Geneva to Nice called Grande Traversée des Alpes.  A large area of it passes through the Morzine area and so we have put together 2 sections of it for you.
