    Lakes Walk

    The Lakes Walk is a lovely adventure in Crans Montana, Switzerland that will take you past nine lakes, ponds, and reservoirs that add a real charm to the region. This walking route invites you to explore the plateau, passing from one body of water to the next, all while making a few stops at terraces along the way. Some of these bodies of water are located in the resort, while others are further removed and closer to nature.
