Champex in Summer
Summer is a wonderful time of the year in Champex. There are hundreds of panoramic walks to experience throughout the area, cycle ways to explore and sports to enjoy. Alternatively why not just sit by the lake, enjoy the mountain sunshine and relax.
In Champex itself you can take a pedalo or rowing boat out on the lake and enjoy a coffee or a light lunch at one of the lovely restaurants overlooking the lake. The ride in the chair lift to the top of La Breya is a breathtaking experience and the panoramic views from the top are spectacular.
