A flexible walk around the beautiful Moiry reservoir. However you decide to explore the area you will be rewarded with beautiful views of the lake, moiry glacier and surrounding mountains.
Take a direct bus from Zinal to the barrage de Moiry (35 mins) from where you have various options to explore the aqua marine Moiry reservoir. We recommend taking a walking route around the entire lake. Start with a ‘low route’ around the right bank of the lake, with views to the Glacier de Moiry in the distance. At the head of the lake, follow the trail as it ascends before returning to the barrage on the high path. Return to Zinal by bus.
Take a picnic to enjoy by the Lac, or you can grab some lunch at the restaurant 'Clems and Fabs' which is located just next to the bus stop.
Weather conditions can change quickly in the mountains - always be prepared and carry appropriate clothing; warm as well as waterproof layers, hat and gloves etc. Please see your information pack for a detailed packing list.
Good waterproof boots are a must. Make sure to bring plenty of water and a snack or packed lunch.
