The tour of the lake of Embrun

A beautiful and easy walk around the Embrun water level

The Embrun lake is located right next to the Serre-Ponçon lake and the Durance river. It is the result of the municipality's desire to develop tourism in Embrun. A pedestrian path of 2.6 km goes around the lake, it is very easy to access, there is a huge parking lot next to the leisure center. For those who wish, you can rent a canoe, a paddle board or a dinghy to navigate on the water. Don't miss this beautiful ride if you are in the area.
