Water Body · Nature / Park
Lac Blanc is a glacial runoff lake with cold, pure waters that reflect the peaks in a mirrored pool. It's best known for its hiking, so wear your sturdiest shoes to get the most out of your visit. If you’re an adventurous hiker, you can start from the bottom of the mountain and make a stop at the charming "La Floria Cafe" for a drink. However, if you prefer an easier walk, take the cable car along with a picnic to the lake. Traverse the lake paths for the best vantage point to see the beauty of the “White Lake.” In the late afternoon, the lines for the cable car tend to be shorter. For Lac Blanc and beyond, use our Chamonix trip itinerary maker website to get the most from your Chamonix vacation.
