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?
Lac de Moiry
A good road leads to the crowning of the dam wall (2250m), accessible from late June to the first big snowfall. By car, you can also drive along the lake to the glacier at 2350m. The emerald-tinted lake marks the starting point for wonderful hikes to reach the Moiry or Becs de Bosson hut, but also the arrival point of the Via Ferrata Moiry. The lake tour (about two hours walk) and the specialities of the restaurants of the Lac de Moiry will delight families.
