There are several beautiful waterfalls in Bugey Sud for a refreshing interlude on a hot summer’s day or to enjoy an exhilarating sight in any season: waterfall of Glandieu, Clairefontaine and waterfall of Cerveyrieu.
Glandieu is undoubtedly the favourite among Bugey Sud’s waterfalls, with its impressive 60-metre chute of cascading waters.
Clairefontaine at Virieu-le-Grand and Cerveyrieu in the Artemare area are equally magnificent sights.
The whole of Bugey is teeming with less well-known but just as pretty chutes such as the Cascade des Dards at Cheignieu-la-Balme and the Biez-des-Cruies waterfalls at Contrevoz.
These unspoilt beauty spots make a wonderful destination for country walks.
