Lac de Louvie

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.

A turquoise lake at the foot of the Bec des Rosses, with a matchless view of the Combins, and where the bravest can go for a swim.

The Chamois trail is the prettiest way of getting to this awesome mountain lake. A cable car ride up to La Chaux, then a good hike to Louvie and home on the bus from Fionnay – a fine way of getting to know the area around Verbier.
