The Lac des Chavonnes is situated amidst beautiful woodland above Villars in the Vaud Alps. It’s just a 30-minute walk from Bretaye station (mountain railway from Bex). Meals and refreshments available at the lakeside restaurant.

Lago Bianco is fed by glacier waters and sand, giving it a milky-white colour. Lago Bianco is both a reservoir and a watershed. To the east, the waters flow into the Black Sea and to the south, into the Adriatic.

The Lago di Saoseo shimmers like an optical illusion, its waters a vivid, luminescent cobalt-blue, and the Lago di Viola nestles like a deep violet eye in the gentle hollow at the foot of the Scima da Saoseo, whose furrowed spine is a delightful contrast to the velvety meadows, still lakes and sparse Swiss pine and larch woods of the Val di Campo.

Lago Nero (2387 m)

Round Lago Nero offers a wonderful view of the Basodino Glacier and Lake Cavagnoli. The colour of the lake is attributed to the surrounding hornblende stone.
