♡ Dam of Serre-Ponçon

Rousset | Serre-Ponçon

Largest dam in Europe (made of soil). The lake is an important source of energy, and a gigantic water tank for the agriculture in la Provence, and in the meantime also a place where you can have a lot of fun! Do you want to know more about the dam and the lake? Then go to the museum Muséoscope du Lac, or to the Maison de l’Eau et des Energies of EDF (Électricité de France).


♡ Bridge of Chanteloube

Chorges | Serre-Ponçon

One of the remains of the railway that was supposed to connect Grenoble with Barcelonette. The project came to a standstill after four years in 1934. At low tide the bridge is completely above the water level, so you can go walking or cycling on it.

Quiet moutain lake, with a breathtaking view of the Pic du Morgon. The perfect place for sport fishing (catching and restoring is a must!), picnicking, swimming and relaxing.

The Rabioux Wave

Châteauroux-les-Alpes | Serre-Ponçon

Almost everyone practicing water sports has heard about it: the Rabioux Wave is nowadays internationally known as the most entertaining place for freestylers. Fun fact: Every year in early June the Radeliers de la Durance navigate down the river, on old-fashioned rafts, as a reconstruction of the past.
