At the end of a hike or a stop on the Chamois Trail, the Lac de Louvie is an unspoilt paradise.
Imagine for a moment a nature reserve in the heart of the Alps with vast steep meadows filled with flowers. While the particularly shy chamois might stay hidden, you’ll likely see marmots and ibexes, animals that are emblematic of our mountain regions. Nestled in this beauty spot is a body of water whose glassy surface changes from deep blue to emerald green and reflects the surrounding snow-covered peaks. The Lac de Louvie is paradise for all nature lovers, as well as wild fishing enthusiasts, trail runners and hikers. Situated at 2,213 metres above sea level, it’s a 2 hour walk from Fionnay. The evocatively named Sentier des Chamois (Chamois Trail) is 3 to 4 hours from La Chaux, high above Verbier. The Cabane de Louvie hut, a charming mountain refuge on the edge of the lake, welcomes guests for a locally sourced meal or a good night’s sleep.
