The 4 Lakes Tour is the little sister of the 5 Lakes Tour. If you want to skip the enormous altitude difference to the Blauseeli, but still want to experience the magic of the mountain lakes, this route is the right one for you. All 4 lakes are nestled in rocky, wild nature and quickly let you forget the stress of everyday life.
