Discover Lac Montriond, a 1.3Km lake near Morzine. It’s a beautiful place. You’ll find it easy to get here on two wheels or two feet. You can hike across using the lifts or take the free resort shuttle buses. And it’s a great spot to spend the day - for walks, sunbathing and paddlesports; or for the kids to have fun-in-the-sun. Make use of our inclusive Paddleboard or Kayak session, (free with our Active Packs). There are two lovely restaurants on the lakeshore, which are some of our favourite places to eat. The lakeside pathway is great for walking, biking and jogging.

Les Gets

  • Swimming
  • Sunbathing beaches
  • WiBit obstacle course (30 modules) - free
  • Ropes course (tarzan nets) next to lake

The lake above the centre of Les Gets is very easy to get to. You can walk there in a few minutes (5 to 10 mins) by using the free lift system; and it 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) with our Active Pack - instead of paddle boarding and kayaking at Montriond.

Learn more about Tignes


  • Numerous lakes for walkers and sunbathers
  • Wild swimming, sunbathing
  • Access by walking or biking (and cable car for some)
  • Restaurants/Cafes & WC at some lakes

The Mont Blanc area has numerous lakes on the valley floor and at altitudes between 2,000 and 2,500 metres which are attractive destinations for hillwalking or family days out. 

Lac Gaillands

One of our favourite lakes is the floor lake at Le Gaillands - known as the Lac de l'Anglais. Situated by the impressive climbing area of Les Pècles is the charming little Lac de l'Anglais, which tells an amazing story of an Englishman so in love with this Chamonix lake that he decides to buy it in 1886.

Lac Blanc

Located in the Aiguilles Rouges nature reserve, take the cable car and walk to this must-see lake which must be one of the most beautiful in the Alps; famous for its unique panorama facing the Mont-Blanc massif. Restaurant and WC available.
