About a 1 1/2 hour hike along a twisting trail from the Arolla Hotel. Have a cup of hot chocolate at the rustic cafe there at Lac Bleu.

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. 😅

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.

I`ve been there in the summer of 2009, and after a walk over the mountains, in the end we saw this beautiful and cold lake.

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.
