Perched 900 metres above sea level, the 4 Lakes viewpoint offers a 360° panorama of the gently-sloping mountains of Jura and 4 of their glacier lakes: Ilay, Narlay, Petit Maclu and Grand Maclu... From up here, the hues of green and blue vary from day to day and through the seasons, between jade, saphire, turquoise and kaki, to offer an everchanging spectacle.

Good to know

Three panoramic views for the price of one!

A section of the GR®559A long-distance hiking trail, a ridge of barely 5km in length, features not one, but three panoramic viewpoints:

They offer three different angles on the same landscape, the same unspoilt wilderness, so wouldn't it be a pity to make do with just one?

Zone de tranquillité des 4 lacs - carte
PRNHJ-CEN
Protecting wildlife

A tranquillity zone for the natural habitats of the 4 Lakes

A voluntary tranquillity zone is established from 15th April to 15th September (the most sensitive period for wildlife).

The areas concerned lie between the lakes of Ilay, Petit Maclu and Grand Maclu and also include the island of La Motte and the banks. The purpose is to mitigate impacts on the landscape, water resources, biodiversity and the quality of the living environment.

Walkers are therefore invited to stay on the multiple waymarked paths which lead to the site's most beautiful spots. Please remember that lighting fires, camping and swimming are strictly forbidden. To avoid disturbing the fauna, watersports are also prohibited (except fishing for permit holders) and it is strongly recommended to keep dogs on a lead.

 

Other lakes to contemplate

Serenity and the sweet life. That's what you feel when you visit our lakes. For a day trip, a weekend or a whole holiday, here's a selection of the most beautiful among them.
