A quick stop on the way to Cervinia. Great opportunity for beautiful photos. Not a hike, so easy for all fitness levels.

Beautiful lake, near Cervinia, and there’s a snowmobile rental right next to it, great times! you can also ski all the way down from Cielo Alto to the lake, one of the best rides of my life.

Just a short distance from the main road, the Lago Blu is worth a quick stop
to enjoy the fantastic view on the Matterhorn.

Small,blue lake located near Cervinia and under the Cervino's glacier. You can reach it by car but also with the steeps,on foot.

We went on a short family hike starting on the parking "perreres" which also offers an extraordinarily pittoresque and well equipped picnic area.

Upon arriving at Lago Blu we enjoyed the superb view of the Matterhorn. The lake itself is very cold due to the glacier water, so swimming in it is not really an Option.
We can recommend hiking there nevertheless! The lake is also easily accessible by car with a small parking area nearby.

The Matterhorn was completely covered in clouds so no nice reflection in the lake for us. An easy walk that we did just 3 days ago. Remember Breuil- Cervinia is absolutely dead from Sep 10th until the last week of October, look like a ghost town. I would not visit during that time if you have a choice. Much better areas to explore nearby.

Very small dam/lake and a lot of people. Are you lucky you can manage to take a picture where Matterhorn is reflected in the water. I would recommend a trip to any alps lake instead.

Very small lake, overcrowded. it still is interesting for families as it's a short and easy walk from the town.

Close to town if you have 30 minutes to spare for this short hike. I would not make a special effort to go there

I will preface this review by first stating that I travelled almost 2 hours to see Lago Blu. This may have influenced my feelings about it.

Pros:

- The colour of the water really is blue/green. It is very pleasant to look at
- The wildlife in the pond is a nice touch
- Nice views of the mountains in the background, plus you can hike a bit higher for better views

Cons:

- I have seen other lakes before and according to my understanding, this is more of a large pond than a lake. Don't be fooled by the pictures online
- The 'lake' is literally off the main road, feels a bit artificial
- Once you have taken the 6 minutes to walk around the lake, there is nothing else to do unless you want to sit and relax

Conclusion:

If I was staying at a nearby hotel, I would definitely visit, but even then only for an hour or so. If you are travelling for longer than 45 mins to see this 'lake' I really advise you to reconsider. The only saving grace about this place is he colour and that there are hiking trails in the same place that give spectacular views.
