In the heat of summer, Rhône-Alpes keeps children and grown-ups happy with a host of fun and refreshing activities. As soon as the springtime sun appears, the tranquil blue waters of France's three biggest lakes, Lake Geneva, Lake Bourget and Lake Annecy, offer aquatic pleasure such as swimming, sailing and wind surfing. The picture-postcard lakeside scenery is also popular with anglers, while others prefer to fly fish for trout in the mountain rivers and tarns.
