You can experience Swiss lakes even if you are staying in a mountain resort.
Bernese Oberland: Bachalpsee and Oeschinensee are crystal clear lakes fed by pure glacier waters. In summer they are surrounded by alpine flowers including edelweiss.
Valais: Riffelsee, Schwarzsee and Blausee offer fantastic views of the Matterhorn. Riffelsee is famous for its reflection of the mountain and Blausee has water of the deepest, purest blue.
Central Switzerland: Härzlisee is an idyllic mountain lake with wonderful views and a traditional Kniepp path to massage your bare feet.
Graubünden: the region around St. Moritz and Pontresina has a chain of beautiful lakes offering views of breathtaking scenery in the high Alps. Lake St. Moritz, Lake Silvaplana, Lake Champfèr and Lake Sils are highly recommended for scenic walks. For summer swimming, try Lake Cauma near Flims, Untersee near Arosa or Heidsee near Lenzerheide. Temperatures reach 20ºC and there are sandy beaches, sports facilities and restaurants - all in the midst of beautiful scenery.
