The Vouglans lake - Tourism in the Jura

Situated at an altitude of 429 metres near Moirans-en-Montagne, the Vouglans lake is, with its 35 kilometres in length, the third biggest artificial water reservoir in France. Benefiting from an unspoiled environment, this magnificent turquoise lake surrounded by forests can be admired off several viewpoints. Besides its beauty, the lake is perfect for numerous water sports activities. Its three harbours, its three sandy beaches that are the Bellecin beach, the Mercantine beach and the Surchauffant beach, along with the vast range of leisure activities will without a doubt delight holidaymakers and watersports fans. Sailing, pedal-boating, canoe kayaking, windsurfing, water-skiing, fishing, swimming and boat trips are among the activities on offer. Hilking and mountain-biking is also possible, the shores of the lake offering 82 km of footpaths.

Not to be missed: the impressive Vouglans dam that was built in 1968 and measures 130 metres in height.
