I would recommend getting here before 10am when the crowds start lining up for boat tours. When the boat docks at the other side of the lake, if you have the energy, do the hike back to the smaller lake behind it and the hike...More

Yes . You certainly don’t need to pre book any rides for the lake . You have two options - go until st bartholomew or go until the end of the lake and do a nice walk . The last ferry goes back at 6 pm I think
