The Lac du Der, a real inland sea

The largest artificial lake in Europe, Lac du Der is an exceptional natural site with many sport and cultural events, most of them free. More than 250 km of marked trails will offer you unforgettable walk or bike rides. You will have fun with tree climbing, windsurfing or paddle boarding.
