Lake Joux, in the heart of the Vaudois Jura, is the largest lake in the entire Jura massif. In winter, it turns into the largest natural ice rink in Europe and in summer it attracts sports fans and lovers of nature.

Lake Joux (1,004 m), together with Lake Brenet and Lake Ter, is situated between the Risoud mountain chain and the Mont Tendre massif (1,679 m). Its surface covers 9,5 square km. It is fed by the rivers Orbe and Lionne, whose waters mostly infiltrate into the chalky depths of the lake and flow out at the caves of Vallorbe.

The wind conditions around Lake Joux are particularly appreciated by windsurfers. At the height of summer, the water may reach a temperature of 24°. The natural beaches are sought after by people in search of natural and romantic settings. Campsites, hikes, and bike tours are the ideal ways of enjoying the magnificent scenery around Lake Joux in any season.​​
