WALKING AND HIKING

For walkers and hikers, we are very close to the Vanoise National Park with its unique and varied flora and fauna.

There is a huge choice of walks and hikes in the area, from scaling high mountain summits, to gentle strolls beside the river in the valley. You'll be assured of stunning scenery wherever you choose to walk. The ski lifts operate in the resort in July and August to whisk you up to higher altitudes to enjoy the fantastic views without having to slog uphill for hours.

We have lived in the area for almost 20 years and know most of the local hikes intimately. We have our favourite routes written up and mapped out on hand outs for our guests.

We know many of the local mountain guides personally, and would be happy to arrange this service if required.
