Colle San Carlo - Lac d'Arpy

Resorts: Morgex

An easily accessible alpine lake with a view of the Mont Blanc massif.

Technical Information


When you reach Col San Carlo you take the un-made road marked no. 15 opposite the Genzianella Hotel which goes uphill and widens as it goes through a wood with fir and larch trees and takes you on to Lac d’Arpy.

From the back of the Genzianella Hotel you can also take a short walk suitable for everyone which takes you to the observation point near Tête d’Arpy with marvellous views over the Mont Blanc range and Valdigne. Since it is only a short walk taking about 25 minutes each way, this route can be done together with the walk to Lac d’Arpy.
