Robert lakes

Within a mineral setting, Robert lakes are easily accessible by La Croix gondola by hiking in summer or skiing in winter.

Robert lakes


The four Robert lakes are located at an altitude of 1,998 meters, and occupy a 28-hectare area at the bottom of the basin of a natural cirque. They are bordered and dominated to the east by Petit Van (2,439 meters), Grand Van (2,448 meters) and Grand Sorbier (2,526 meters).

The 2,677-hectare site is also part of the Natura 2000 network, under the name "Cembraie, pelouses, lacs et tourbières de Belledonne, de Chamrousse au Grand Colon".

In summer, you can hike at the gateway to the high mountains and even fish for rainbow trout and Arctic grayling in the Robert lakes. In winter, you can go ice diving and discover a ski slope and lift bearing the same name.
In winter, their altitude means they remain frozen and snow-covered.
