Lake Bicaz also known as Lake Izvorul Muntelui (Mountain Spring), is the largest artificial lake in Romania and a beloved tourist destination, especially in summertime,

A pitoresque place, especially in good weather, the lake makes you rejoice in its surroundings, quiet, fresh mountain air, coolness and existent fauna.

The fishermen can enjoy their passion, the lake being populated by numerous species: perch, scabar, plaice, clean, trout, etc. You can sail on the lake or rent boats or hydro-bicycles.

The lake is a tourist destination in the region, especially in summertime, when visitors take the ferryboat from the Bicaz port for a short trip on the lake, and to view Mount Ceahlău on the west shore.

It's worth visiting! You will discover an incredible landscape!

Trivia: The dam was built between the years 1950-1960 with the help of 15,000 people, and 22 villages in this area were displaced to provide the needed space.


Tourists can hire boats, dinghies or hydro-bikes at reasonable prices.

There's also a floating hotel nearby where you can stay, but there are also plenty of guesthouses on both banks.
