As a family

Dive into the deep end

Take the plunge

During the summer, everyone flocks to the ponds, rivers and mountain lakes for swimming and water sports. Some like to sunbathe, while others prefer staying active on the water. The water sports centres in the Vosges Mountains offer all kinds of activities for all ages.

Se jeter à l'eau

Point info : Discover a white sandy beach around Gérardmer Lake for basking in the sun.

Envie de glisse

Glide through water

Looking to relax? Set sail on Gérardmer Lake. Unwind to the sounds of the water aboard a boat or a pedalo. Looking for action? Try your hand at windsurfing on the lake. By the whims of the wind, glide along the water while learning to master your sail. Such a sense of freedom!

Point info : Vosges dans l'vent offers electric boat and pedalo rentals on the lake.

Massif des Vosges - Plonger dans le grand bain - Tous à la piscine

To the pool!

We swim, jump and dive in a family atmosphere. The little ones have fun in the wading pool while the big kids go down the slides again and again. To finish off a great afternoon, we enjoy a bit of ice cream as a family.

The joys of camping

A barbecue, a nap, a game of beach volleyball, catching some rays … welcome to the campsite! Families love camping in the Vosges Mountains for its inexpensive, complete accommodation options, and many campsites have swimming pools or are near a lake.

Les joies du camping
