The splendour of winter lakes
7 itineraries for everyone to enjoy, on foot or snowshoes
Fascinating, mesmerising and, at times, wild: these are the winter lakes. As the first snowflakes start to fall and the temperature drops, the lakes’ surface turns into a gleaming sheet of ice covered by a soft white mantle.
The whole landscape is draped in wintery hues, framed by the stunning natural backdrop of snow-capped mountains; the atmosphere is surreal, almost mystical. This is the perfect time for a peaceful wilderness excursion, on foot or strapped to snowshoes, to discover the landscape and its hidden gems. We selected for you the most captivating winter lakes easy to reach through short nature trails.
