Lake Lioson

Description

Lake Lioson deserves its nickname « pearl of the alpine lakes ». The ultimate destination for a family hike or a place to rest before climbing the surrounding summits, its emerald coloured waters both seduce and inspire visiting hikers to relax.

High above Les Mosses, in unspoilt countryside with its clear waters reflecting the surrounding peaks, the shores of Lac Lioson are the ideal place for a picnic and a siesta in the sun after your hike. When you reach the lake, you'll be rewarded for the climb. The small animal park adjoining the restaurant is a delight for children. Want to cool off? What could be better than a dip in the emerald waters of the lake? How about a fish supper? Lake Lioson is regularly restocked with fish. It's home to Arctic char and rainbow trout. If the fish haven't taken the bait, the restaurant's terrace can save the meal by offering cheese dishes and specialities on the slate.
