Lake Montriond, also known also as the emerald green lake, sits quietly at the foot of immense cliffs with idyllic views of the French Alps. This hidden gem is surrounded by forests, waterfalls, and famous summits. Although the view and experience are grandeur, the lake offers an intimate setting that evokes a feeling of calm that is perfect for hosting a wedding.

The lake feels quiet even though it hosts many adventures over the seasons. In the summer kayakers, climbers, runners, swimmers, fishers, and paddle boarders all enjoy the warmer months. In the Winter, the lake freezes over and people can ice dive, cross-country ski, and snowshoe walk at the water’s edge. The view from every side of the path around the lake provides a new perspective that will leave you in awe no matter the season. One of the most well-known peaks in sight is Roc d’Enfer, towering over the water at 2,244 m tall.

This stunning Alpine lake makes for an amazing wedding ceremony location and is very close to the town of Morzine, which offers many amazing venues and restaurants. – Check out a recent wedding from Lake Montriond.
