  • Very nice Lake near super besse, which it is possible to make the tour by a path. Arrive in the morning and you can see the plates of ice melt at the surface. Nice show!

  • Remarkable visiting place. Very nice ride around the Lake to do, only downside on the Museum shop which is open only in the summer

  • We were two adults and two teens... Amazing quiet d an hour at least around this Lake. He was still frozen and snow on the course. Different paths are available. Park down because at the foot of the Lake c is not allowed and you are fined regularly... In short, after a good meal c is nice.

  • Peaceful lake. You can walk round it in about an hour. Some parts are not suitable for flip-flops! Swimming is forbidden.
  • Blah, you don't see much of the Lake when we do the ballad autour. Forbidden to swim and not fun activity for children (besides the prohibitive pedalo).

  • They are very friendly. Very good value for money. We eat very well.

  • Come and take a tour of this wonderful place! However don't stop especially not at the restaurant bar... The terms of service and friendliness or even exist for tourists that we are passing in the summer!
