The name Blanchemer has a very poetic history, as it comes from the fact that in winter, the snow is reflected in this lake, giving it the appearance of a "white sea".

The lake is located at 984 meters above sea level in the commune of La Bresse in the Vosges, close to the Grand Artimont ski slopes at the bottom of the Vologne valley.

It's a glacial cirque resting on a pile of rocky debris.

All our guides have a high level of training, guaranteeing their ability to supervise, lead, teach and train people or groups safely in the mountains.

We propose to accompany you on a beautiful and varied itinerary! We'll be walking along the wild side of the Rainkopf, home to the Blanchemer peat bog lake, located in the Moselotte valley at 980 m altitude at the foot of the summit. It's also known as the Firtsmisse and features a renowned floating peat bog.

We'll pass through forests of beech trees (foyards), and take a picturesque path to reach the sparsely vegetated ridges: the stubble fields, a vast snow-covered steppe beneath the feet of snowshoers in search of solitary panoramas.

Discover this route accompanied by a mountain guide who will help you appreciate nature's treasures!

Option to enjoy a mountain menu at the Breitzhousen farm inn.
