This is a great shortish walk. It doesn’t require fitness or poles- but the view at the lookout is as good as if you’ve hiked for days.

After a day out in Samoëns we drive up to the Col de Joux Plane where we had spectacular views in every direction. We enjoyed a dessert at the summit while gazing at the view . The meadow was filled with a chorus of cow bells

This is a tough, steep 90 minute climb. But the view is with it.
360°. And the is an easier route down.

An 8km uphill drive from Samoens to the car park then a round trip walk of about 1.5 hrs. There's a large cross at the summit with great views over the valley and Samoens with Mont Blanc in the distance.
Walk up to the cafe for a drink and take in the lake. Well worth a visit!

If you are in Samoëns or Morzine in the Haute- Savoie, and you have a good day, you HAVE to go up La Bourgeoise! This viewpoint looks right over Samoëns and the Haute Giffre valley. Views are spectacular in all directions.
It is 12km up the mountain from Samoëns to the Col de Joux Plan - an easy trip for anyone In a car, but very hard graft for those cyclists one sees regularly pacing it out on the steep, and unremitting, climb.
From the car park it is an easy walk up to La Bourgeoise, 1770m, amply rewarded by the stunning view. Enjoy!
There is a restaurant by the car park (with one loo for patrons).

The Bougeoise is a summit accessible from a couple of starting points. You can drive to Col de Joux Plan from either Samoens or Morzine (in summer or when the Col is open). From there it is about a 40 min easy walk. Returning to the start point there is a restaurant so a picnic is not essential. Book on busy high season days, it is very popular. Alternatively, drive from Samoens toward the Col and park just after the hamlet of Combe Emeru. From there, take a marked walking trail which is a stiff, but not difficult, climb to the summit - you will be rewarded. Lots of parapenters use La Bourgeoise as a launch point, so enjoy seeing them take off. Continue on for 30 mins to the Col and lunch! Walking map IGN 3530ET. Walking book, Patrice GAIN - Vallee du Haut Giffre. This is in French but describes many excellent walks in the area.

Easy walk from parking - 40 min one way in 30cm snow. At the top you can see whole valley with Samoens down below. Great Mount Blanc view and all the peaks around.

A walk up to La Bourgeoise will afford fantastic views across to Mont Blanc and down the Giffre Valley; your efforts are certainly rewarded. Don't be put off if there is low cloud in Samoëns - the last time I went up we had a fantastic inversion and were in brilliant sunshine.

There is a relatively easy snowshoe trail from the Col de Joux Plane - this becomes a walking path in the summer - or for more of a challenge you could walk up from the approach road at Sur les Chables.

And as a reward you can treat yourself to Vin Chaud or coffee - or maybe more - at Le Ralais des Vallees.
