The short cycling trail along the river Rhône is ideal for a family outing, mostly on safe, nature cycling routes. On the longer trail, amateur cyclists will be thrilled with the view after an uphill effort to Pic Saint-Romain.

Activities available : fishing, walking, jousting (enquire for the dates). Bathing is not allowed. The lake is situated not far from the mooring post at La Roche de Glun on the neighbouring Rhône river. Information source : La Drôme Tourisme
