Hiking theme: Lake Aravis

Mountain lakes are magical places. Source of life, they are also fragile and therefore require all our respect. In the Bornes and Aravis massifs, they are rare because the local geology only allows their formation in certain configurations. Lake of Peyre, lake of Tardevant, lake of Lessy, lake of the Mont-Charvin, lakes of the Confins, lake Benit, lake of the late field: we propose you to leave to the discovery of these jewels during a beautiful excursion.
