Alunis Lake

Bear Lake overflows into Alunis Lake, whose salt content and heliothermic properties are therefore lower. A walk along Alunis Lake is well worth it for its serenity alone. Take a coffee break by the lake and feast your eyes on a “green” view of the lush trees and the green colour of the water.
