It's a short trip, only a little hour from the road and you're up near the glaciers. Nice tables for pic-nic, cows all around and if you're brave enough, you can try to bathe !

Well worth walking up to the lake both for the lake itself and the mountain scenery. Despite the name, it is still a shock to see how blue the lake is. I visited on a sunny day in July, the meadows filled with flowers and...More

A great place to see if you are coming to Switzerland - boy what a walk though. It is tough going for us urban dwellers!! Worth every metre and step. Once we've got our energy back, we'll return. 😅

After all those mountains and blue skies, it's a welcome break in the scenery to see this gorgeous glacial tarn. Many day trip visitors too.

This lake is beautiful and the landscape is amazing. If you feel like it, you can walk until la cabane des aiguilles rouges from there, which is a beautiful place too. I prefer the lac bleu in summer, it is more scenery.

Lac Bleu is a short hike off the beaten track but well worth the up hill climb. The views are stunning surrounded by snow capped peaks and the setting one of tranquillity - great for a pic-nic or simply to chill out for an hour...More

A steep path, but without danger, and a real blue (but cold!) lake in a quiet place with beautiful view.

Start the walk to Lac Bleu from Arolla, as an alternative for the start at the Pension du Lac Bleu. You can choose from a yellow or red-white trail. Both are worth it! Especially in the end when seeing the lovely small Lac Blue.
