Lac de Joux

 Lac de Joux   

Lac de Joux in the Vaud Jura is located at 1,000 metres in the valley of the same name (Vallée de Joux). The stark beauty and unspoilt nature of the high valley and the lake attract countless visitors all year round; in summer mainly for water sports, biking and hiking and in winter for ice-skating and cross-country skiing. Set between Mont Tendre (1,679 m) and the densely wooded chain of the Risoux, along the ridge of which runs the border between Switzerland and France, the Lac de Joux is the largest expanse of water in the Jura region. Well known for its favourable wind conditions, the lake attracts a large number of yachters and windsurfers, but is also ideal for rowing boats, water skiing and wakeboarding. Water temperatures between 18 and 24 degrees also tempt a lot of swimmers here. There is an extensive network of routes for cycling and mountain biking in the hilly natural paradise around the lake, and a number of fine footpaths
