Water is life! And never more so than in the Pays d’Évian-Vallée d’Abondance. Throughout the region water is in a variety of forms, the symbol of life, purity, and unity. From the world-famous Évian mineral water to the iconic Lake Geneva, passing by the wetlands, natural and artificial lakes and by the relentless River Dranse that serpentines the territory.
When the latine sails, vestiges from the past, meet stand-up paddles, windsurfers, and fishing boats…
Lulled by the gentle waves on Lake Geneva or rocked about on the River Dranse’s whitewater, you can combine both tranquillity and adventure in the Pays d’Évian-Vallée d’Abondance.

From Saint-Paul-en-Chablais to Châtel, the valley is overflowing with high-altitude lakes where fishing is authorised (once you have a valid permit)!
Lake Geneva is like the sea in the mountains. With an average temperature of 25°C in the summer, the lake’s beaches are as delightful as any Mediterranean seaside resort. And as a bonus, it’s freshwater not salty!
