Lake Activities

All our resorts have beautiful lakes nearby, whether they’re fresh and beautiful mountain lakes or the incredible lake at Biscarosse. We love them for wild swimming, water sports and kids fun and games.

They’re fringed with sunbathing beaches around the shore and lovely cafes you can visit by kayak or paddleboard.
Main Facts
  • Great for wild swimming
  • Great for water sports
  • Kids Fun and Games
  • Lakes in all our resorts


Discover Lac Montriond, easy for our guests to visit and great for kids to have fun-in-the-sun, trying water sports or just larking around in its clear waters. Go for an afternoon swim or explore the lake by Paddleboard or Kayak, (free session with our Active Packs). 

It’s great with a picnic lunch, (available from our hotels) or to dine at one of the two lakeside restaurants. You can cycle to the lake, get the free shuttle bus, (it’s not very far), or use the lifts from the resort centre and try hiking or mountain biking to the lake via high mountain trails. Stunning views are guaranteed!

Dotted around the lake are two lovely restaurants and a walking and biking path leads all the way round which is perfect for jogging around too.

Les Gets

The lake in Les Gets is very easy to get to, (you can walk there in under 10 mins) and provides a stunning centrepiece to this wonderful family resort. It’s great for swimming, sunbathing, kids’ fun-and-games and enjoying a picnic lunch.

Kids (and adults) love the Wi Bit fun park, which is a series of inflatable obstacles, bouncy cubes and slides which you can try (for free) on our Active Pack as an option instead of paddle boarding and kayaking at Montriond.

The lake is just above Les Gets centre and is a perfect stopover during a bike ride or walk using the trails above. There are family bike trails leading to it, and you can also access it on foot using the chairlift from the town centre for an added factor of fun!

The lake in Tignes is the resort centrepiece. A beautiful and large mountain lake with many free water sports to try on our Sportignes pass, (free with our Active Packs). So, have a go at kayaking, paddle boarding, pedalo and the famous Acroland among many other lake-activities like water balling and fishing (of course)!

Kids and adults have plenty to do all week (in fact almost too much!) and everyone loves to visit Acroland for its somewhat crazy activities like the Giant Water Slide and the Hot Jump.
