Nestled in the heart of an exceptional area between lake and mountains, Tignes opens its doors this summer to give you a lot of freedom!
In summer, the resort of Tignes completely changes its landscape and the activities are as different as in the winter season. A change of scenery, nature, the great outdoors, sporting activities and well-being in the heart of the Vanoise National Park. Let's discover together what this little corner of paradise has to offer with family or friends 😊
Wake up the sportsman in you.
Hiking, accessible to all and offering an infinite number of possibilities will be the flagship activity of your holiday. In fact, we advise you to discover the one that encompasses the resort, right in the heart of the Tignes-Champagny reserve. The levels of difficulty of the hikes vary and adapt to everyone. Horse riding is also organised. And for those who prefer speed, it is also possible to rent a mountain bike to explore the Tarentaise valley region in a different way but also to get fit and relax for a successful holiday.
With family or friends, it will be a question of filling up with thrills while admiring the magnificent landscapes of Tignes. In the same idea, summer skiing is an activity that has developed on the Grande Motte glacier to allow each of you to discover skiing or snowboarding in a new environment, under the summer sun. Some people also like to play golf or tennis and several facilities such as the skate park and trampolines will allow young and old alike to exercise. All in all, in Tignes, summer and winter, everything is done to satisfy you.
Relax by the lake
What could be better than a summer vacation to indulge in a variety of water activities. While some people dream of fine sandy beaches and turquoise water, you could almost be mistaken when you arrive at the edge of these 25 hectares of pure water of a striking blue, then no, the coconut trees will not be there but the charm will work quite differently in front of these gigantic mountains.
While you can enjoy canoeing, kayaking or stand up paddle... the lake of Tignes will perfectly satisfy your desire for swimming and will become an excellent playground for the most daring. In addition, the lake is bordered by a small park where you can even have a picnic with your loved ones. And what about the beauty of this place!
Our favorite : Lac de la Sassière
A small jewel of the region, easily accessible by hiking, this walk is ideal for families and even with children. To find this little corner of paradise, from the parking lot of Le Saut, you will need about 45 minutes walk. Breathtaking scenery, daffodils, gentians and other flowers will follow your path. The green grass will contrast with the still snow-covered summits. Once at the top, you will finally be able to admire the sublime Lac de la Sassière at an altitude of 2465m, we promise you won't be disappointed.
