Average length : 01h10
Distance : 3.6km
Signed walking trail
Animals allowed

From the Col de la Ramaz, follow a wide stony path slightly uphill towards the Lac de Roy. In the summer season, there are herds up on Véran pastures so remember to close gates. It’s possible to just walk around the lake, or you can go on a longer walk up to the ridge, for a superb view down across Giffre Valley, the Môle and Aravis Mountains (360-degree panoramic view from the Pointe du Haut Fleury).

The magnificent glacial Lac de Roy is a must-see of our resort. Panoramic view of the Grandes Alpes.
Getting to the lake via this mountainside footpath facing Mont-Blanc is an incredible experience.
You’ll most likely see marmots on the pastures, so take the time to observe them!
