On the shores of the lake of Nantua

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

Nantua is a small town near the Alps, The beautiful lake of Nantua is one of the largest natural lakes in France. This walk takes place mainly around the lake in Nantua, it is nevertheless possible to go around the whole lake (8 km), Unfortunately, the cycle and pedestrian path runs along the national road for a while, which spoils the fun a little. In summer the water of the translucent lake encourages swimming!
