How to have a good holiday in the mountains without skiing?
Skiing is the most popular winter holiday activity in the mountains. However, some holidaymakers will want to experience something different. Fortunately for them, ski resorts take this into account and explore the possibilities to offer other varied activities accessible to all. Winter sports, adventure, relaxation, culture... there is something for everyone.
Practice other winter sports
The resorts have no shortage of resources to give non-skiers the opportunity to enjoy the joys of skiing. Between snowboarding, sledging, snowmobiling, ice skating or snowshoeing, families and thrill-seekers have plenty to enjoy.
Fancy a walk to discover the sublime landscapes of Savoie? Snowshoeing and Nordic walking are excellent ways to explore the natural beauty of the Alps at your own pace. Snowshoe walks are available in most ski resorts, and in Tignes le Lac, the activity is combined with a dinner in a yurt followed by a sledge ride back to the village.
Extraordinary activities for an unforgettable holiday
An original activity that you can add to your holiday programme is ice diving. This activity takes place at the Lac du Lou, located between the lower part of Val Thorens and Les Menuires or at Tignes le Lac. The experience lasts about 30 minutes and equipment is provided. Once you have put on your wetsuit, you dive under the ice in the dark, connected to a breadcrumb trail, and travel through the icy waters in an almost abysmal calm.
Dog sledding is all the rage. This activity is a great way to have fun while exploring the white nature of the snowy mountains. First, you will meet the huskies and help them get ready for the ride. Once everything is ready, you will set off to conquer the alpine landscape with your guide and your four-legged friends.
A holiday of well-being
For those who prefer to take advantage of the holiday to recharge their batteries, wellness activities offer several possibilities. Residents of our hotels and chalets can relax under expert hands during massage sessions. After a day of nature walks or a visit to a Savoyard village, why not relax in a sauna and enjoy the benefits for body and soul? Our swimming pools are also open every day so that you can swim a few lengths or take a leisurely dip during your stay.
