In the heart of the winter, the Lac de Joux, largest lake of the Jura massif and neighbouring Ter lake turn into immense natural ice-skating rinks.

A unique experience in an ideal decor, ice-skating or walking on the Lac de Joux is an unforgettable moment that you have to experience once in a lifetime!
At winter’s coldest, the 9.5-square kilometres of the Lac de Joux transform into an immense natural ice-skating rink. The banks of the lake are animated by refreshment stands held by local organisations, while ice-skaters, walkers and families set off to have fun on the frozen surface of the lake. The most popular spots on the lake are in the villages of Le Pont and L’Abbaye as well as at the beachs of Le Rocheray in Le Sentier.
And not far away, Ter lake offers families the same joys of gliding on the lake’s surface on a more modest scale. Access the lake in the village of Le Séchey.
