Lot of great walks around the lake. Easy to reach from Font-Romeu by chairlift, ONLY in summer time. Otherwise, you have to drive, and if too busy, you have to park on the bottom and take a shuttle.
You have some awesome walks to do around

We had a great walk around the lakes and watched the wild horses posing for photographs. The lakes are in a beautiful setting and taking the ski lift to the start of the walk added to the amazing views and set the scene for the day. The only disappointment was that the oversimplified map does not offer any hint of the difficulty of the walks around the lakes. Definitely worth a visit. Next time might spend a night in one of the b&bs to make the most of two days walking.

“good trip beautiful scenery”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Really enjoyed spending a day walking around the lake and relaxing. Bring your mosquito repellent!!
Beautiful scenery took the teleski to get to the lake, another half hour walk and you are there. Very busy during the summer. Downside is that the teleski close during thunderstorm and this can shorten your visit unless you are prepared to walk up the hill - would need to be very fit!!

“Stunning, Scenic and great fun for the kids”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We loved visiting this lake after our first sleepless night at Villa Paulita as it was very relaxing and great fun for my kids (twins age 14, and little ones aged 4 and 1). We parked in a big free carpark (one of the most beautiful ones I've ever seen!) and took the bus up to the lake. We then walked over the bridge over the dam which was the first any of the kids had seen. My eldest son and daughter then went climbing over the mountains while my youngest explored the lower rocks towards the bottom with me looking at the beautiful wild flowers. We then all went to the area by the lake below the dam and looked at the cows. There was a big bull and some little calves as well. There were also lots of wild 'horsies' which my little girl adored. There were huge stones there that the big ones helped the little ones sit on and all the children were allowed to pet the horses. It was fantastic, an amazing day out, enjoyed by all. If you want to go higher up on the walk than my children did however, proper climbing gear is essential.

“Meadows in the sky”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We were lucky to get to the lake, the last day you were allowed to go by your own car, all summer there will be bus schedules running
often and with some stops. Bring a picnic and enjoy it at one of the meadows, it is beautiful.
