Serre Ponçon Lake

2 days touring kayak in Southern Alps

Lake Serre Ponçon is the biggest lake in the Southern Alps, and with its never ending sunshine it offers the perfect introduction to sea kayaking. Fed by the rivers Durance and Ubaye, 2 valleys form the lake which is surrounded by mountains, similar to those of the Norwegian fjords.





We offer a variety of 2 day trips to discover this treasure nestled in the Southern Alps:

A 2 day tour of the lake, discovering St Michel’s Bay, the valley of Ubaye as well as the hidden creeks of the lake.

A 2 day getaway with a bivouac in the Ubaye valley.

(All camping and cooking material is provided).

We are also proposing a 2 day trip in January, the lake at this time of the year offers an ambience similar to that of the great Canadian North.

For further information or to obtain our road book of trips, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Day 1: We meet again at Savines le Lac. Briefing, loading kayaks and departure for hiking. We drive along the south coast of the lake between meadows and forest, pass at the foot of the cliffs of Sauze, then enter the valley of the Ubaye and will establish the camp in a creek to spend the night

Day 2: After a breakfast, we leave towards the old wood beach, not far from the dam. Then we go up the lake, from cove to cove, we pass in the bay of chanteloube and its viaduct partially submerged by the waters of Serre Ponçon. After a picnic break in a bay we head back to Savines where the stay ends at the end of the day
