The skies turn more blue with every passing day, and that frosty chill in the air has begun to subside. The flowers are in full bloom with lush green vegetation suggesting the first hints of summer. Grab your swimsuits and towels, because it’s time to spend the hot days in Lake Davos.
Lake Davos (Or the Davoser See in Swiss German) is conveniently located near the city centre. Only a five-minute drive away from Tivoli Lodge, the lake has plenty to offer for adults and children of all ages. The blue water against the rolling green Alps offers an idyllic location for the summer holidays. Formed through landslide from the Totalp in the Parsenn area, Lake Davos is a natural reservoir, which spans 3.8km along the bank. The waters reach 20° Celsius in the height of summer, and offers all water-lovers sports and leisure opportunities to indulge in.
For the adventurous type, enjoy a variety of water sports such as canoeing, surfing, sailing, and wakeboarding. Due to the thermal winds, there will always be perfect wind conditions to do surfing and sailing – which is especially useful for any beginners or intermediates looking to try for the first time. There’s also a temporary water ski lift set up during the summers to enhance your wakeboarding experience. If you’re looking for a more relaxing type of play, why not rent a paddleboard or taking a romantic trip on a pedalo-boat.
After an active day in the water, set down your towels and grab your favourite book to enjoy on the Lake Davos lido while you take in some sunshine. If you get hungry, feel free to bring a picnic or something to throw onto one of the BBQ’s set up all along the water. Otherwise, enjoy the traditional Swiss nibbles at one of three different restaurants and cafés surrounding Lake Davos.
The lake offers a variety of fantastic activities for the whole family to ensure the perfect summer holiday getaway. If the lakeside water gets too chilly in the evenings but you’re still feeling fresh for a swim, join us at Tivoli Lodge and take a dip in our swimming pool or hot tub while enjoying the summer sunset from the south-facing window views.
