At the edge of the lake of Nantua

A nice little walk along the lake of Nantua in the Ain

The very beautiful lake of Nantua of glacial origin is one of the largest natural lakes in France. This walk takes place mainly around the lake in Nantua, it is nevertheless possible to make the complete tour of the lake (8 km). Unfortunately the bicycle and pedestrian path runs along the national road for some time, which spoils the pleasure a little. In summer, the translucent water of the lake invites you to swim!
