Achard lake

The Achard lake, a touch of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Beautiful mountain lake at 1,917 meters of altitude easily visible from the Infernet Pass and the Croix de Chamrousse in summer and covered with snow in winter.
Achard lake


You can discover it by hiking, walking or snowshoeing in winter. It consists of a main lake in the form of small filling lakes (the exact name is Achard Lakes). In fine weather, you will have an exceptional view of the Taillefer mountain.

The Achard Lake is part of the Sensitive Natural Space (ENS) "Arselle Plateau and Achard Lake". It is also located in Natura 2000 area.
Thus fire, wood gathering, camping, flower gathering, fishing and swimming (even the dogs) are strictly forbidden (punishable by fine). Dogs must be kept on leash. The bivouac is allowed from sunset to sunrise (except during mid-June to Mid-September).
Thank you for staying on the trails to preserve these fragile environments.
