A good road leads to the crowning of the dam wall (2250m), accessible from late June to the first big snowfall. By car, you can also drive along the lake to the glacier at 2350m. The emerald-tinted lake marks the starting point for wonderful hikes to reach the Moiry or Becs de Bosson hut, but also the arrival point of the Via Ferrata Moiry. The lake tour (about two hours walk) and the specialities of the restaurants of the Lac de Moiry will delight families.
