There is nothing more refreshing than jumping into a clear, cool mountain lake. But of course it takes a little courage. Those who prefer to stay warm can safely appreciate these jewels of the Alps from the bank. Most lakes can only be reached on foot, and they are extremely popular hiking destinations thanks to their wonderfully rejuvenating and relaxing effects. Untouched, they mirror their surroundings and the colours of the sky, while radiating a pleasant calm. What can be more enjoyable than cooling your feet in clear mountain waters after a long hike in heavy boots?
