At an elevation of 1,155 metres, Lamoura is the highest lake in Jura! It formed more than 15,000 years ago following the last ice age.
In the Upper Jura Regional Nature Park, you'll find a green haven and, at its centre, the crystal-clear waters of Lamoura Lake. Here, children and adults will find everything they need for a pleasant afternoon, including lifeguarded bathing in summer, and snowshoe walks in winter.
Longing for the tranquillity of nature? You'll find what you're looking for at Lamoura Lake. Spread your towel on the beach with supervised swimming and an exceptional view like none you'll find at the seaside.
Forget the vast, flat expanse of water with no contours or colours! Here, the scenery features a peat bog on the right, a typical Jura pine forest on the left and, far out on the horizon, entire meadows scattered with wild orchids.
Did you know?
A quick tour of the peat bogs
The distinguishing feature of Lamoura Lake is that it is at the very heart of a fragile peat-bog ecosystem. The wildlife and vegetation of these wetlands are quite simply outstanding and can be explored via a designated discovery trail.
Follow the hiking trail
Fancy hiking into the wilderness? We recommend a walk around the lake. This is an accessible adventure the whole family can enjoy, along the easy and picturesque footpath that follows the lakeside and never takes you far from the water. Not only that, but it presents no real difficulty and is totally flat, so even the children will love it!
Places to visit in the vicinity of the lake
Besides being a summer destination for watersports activities, Lamoura Lake also attracts ice-skaters when the winter temperatures are cold enough. You can also go snowshoeing or cross-country skiing on the banks of the lake, or even take a ride on a dog sled
