The tourists visitor center provides a book that describes the various hikes in the area. This is a nice hike that offers a beautiful view of the city and mountains. Wear good hiking shoes, bring water, and wear a hat.

This is a very special walk, and I did it on Palm Sunday, which gave it a special significance. Not for buggies or the faint hearted, the uphill walk leads to a series of little chapels, with life size plaster figures inside depicting the stations...More

Stunning views and a unique curiosity. A fairly steep incline leads you up to a series of chapels & churches. Well worth the small detour from the centre of Megève.

Not a hard walk at all, easy to find in the village, lovely views and trees and chapels. In summer lovely, I imagine no less beautiful in winter. A 20 min walk maximum.

Megeve is beautiful. The Chemin du Calvaire is accessible from the town centre. The tourist office people were very friendly and provided a map and information. The trail is a short distance, a bit steep but not far and definitely worth the walk.

The path is not that easy, but the landscape that surround you during all the way is really very beautiful (it was doable even on the very high winter season). The mountain, the cute chapels, the view to the village from the top. It is...More
