Whether you're setting off from Treffort or Mayres-Savel, start your day with a 30-minute guided boat trip to the other side of the river. Then set off at your own pace to return to your starting point via the two footbridges. The Drac bridge is 220 meters long, and the Ebron bridge is 180 meters long. These bridges offer a surprising experience 80 meters above the lake. You'll enjoy an air of the Mediterranean in the heart of the Alps, with the song of the cicadas and the brilliant color of the water.
There are several picnic areas where you can relax and enjoy the panoramic view of the lake. Dry toilets are also available along the way.
