  • We did a route that passed by this Lake. We liked it so much, but there are other smaller and more paragraphs (obviously also more difficult to get) that we liked much more. This Lake you can climb by car, although in December the road was closed by snow.

  • Couple, family, this hike is a must in the corner. Especially not to be missed, while both bucolic and magic. Plan to do so with a start in the morning. The site of Bouillouses is accessible, the summer with a shuttle to avoid distorting the site.

  • You can see more information about the area of Font Romeu and Les Angles in my personal blog of travel unachicatrotamundos.com Lake of Bouillouses or in French Lac des Bouillouses is a large lake located in the highest part of the high Pyrenees or French Cerdagne, Capcir. It is located in the French commune of Angoustrine-Villeneuve-des-Escaldes. And is located very near the area of Bolquere (where we stayed) and the area famous of Les Angles. This area has only a Lake, but it is filled with smaller pond, bathed by the Têt River, and surrounded by big mountains. There are marked trails in the surroundings of the Lake, one of the most famous is the path that leads to the Carlit peak. On a day cannot be everything, so we decided to make the path bordering the Lake, a route very easy and well indicated, suitable for all, and that more or less lasts 3:45 hours. The only thing I didn't like was that there were many people making the path, because I like to go quiet, but well, who is going to do if we are going on a holiday. At least there was enough free parking on-site. However, a very nice trail, took the opportunity to take many pictures. To part there is a mountain and a hostel, hotel if you want to stay there, and I even imagine that you can eat there.

  • Car south of the Lake from may turn off and then walk westwards for unique nature experience uauf over 2000 metres above sea level.

  • Just simply beautiful! a place unique and really far from civilization. I also find that the bus company benefits because you cannot reach the Lake by car (4 star because of this). Even if you do not have the obligation to take this means of transportation, the 10 km separating the parking lot of the Lake can be discouraging to walk. A little advice for the brave: take it because the morning and follow the path sloping in late afternoon to reach your car below. The beauty of nature is not limited to the Lake...

  • A magnificent site, in full mountain and lakes all more beautiful than the other. The 12 Lakes hike is really beautiful (6 hours of walking with breaks and the included picnic time), well signposted and with wonderful views. Horses and cows in freedom, and excellent blueberries.

  • The Lake with the colder waters have ever seen; but surrounded by a quiet and beautiful environment. Definitely, very pleasant.
