Alpine lakes

They reveal themselves to those who wish to see them…

You don’t have to be a great walker to go and see our region’s loveliest lakes.
The Mont Blanc area has numerous lakes at altitudes between 2,000 and 2,500 metres which are attractive destinations for hillwalking.
Admire the reflections of the mountain-tops in such pure water. The beautiful sights are worth the effort: you will very quickly forget about your fatigue and your sore feet!
