Great lakes

There’s water of course, but also lots of greenery. Upon the arrival of summer, the territories of the Great Lakes are the ideal destination for a weekend or a relaxing afternoon.

This is one of the department’s most popular treasures.

The great lakes of the department, located less than an hour's drive of the major cities, are all havens for families, fishermen and other water sports enthusiasts.
The best known are called Monteynard, Laffrey, Paladru and Petitchet. Nearby, the areas of Trieves, Beaumont, Matheysine and the Voironnais lend themselves to many outdoor activities such as walking, hiking or mountain biking.
