Today, the mountains are no longer considered only as a winter sports destination: far from the scorching heat of the southern beaches, the trend is moving in favour of altitude for summer holidays.
Are you looking for activities and thrills in a natural, calm and soothing setting? Discover the good reasons to prefer the mountains to the sea during the summer period.
Outdoor activities: family fun and sharing
On foot, on horseback or by mountain bike, hiking has long been the flagship activity to be practiced in the mountains: the best way to evolve in the middle of nature in peace and quiet and to be able to discover at your own pace lakes, forests, mountain pastures and landscapes.
Take advantage of the water, omnipresent in the mountains, to get the most out of your thrills! White-water sports such as rafting, canoeing, kayaking and hydrospeed are fun and friendly activities that everyone can enjoy, whatever their level or age.
For adrenaline lovers, leisure activities such as climbing, paragliding, hang-gliding or microlighting offer you a completely different way to tame the mountain and its summits.
Access to many advantages with the leisure card
Every summer, the resorts of Tignes, Val Thorens and Les Menuires offer their own leisure menu: individual and adapted to everyone, it gives you access to a multitude of activities to discover during your holidays.
We propose you to book it at the same time as your accommodation:

Close to nature Mountain air and climate: real assets for your health
Why don't you take advantage of your vacation to get some fresh air? Far from the stifling heat of the tourist cities, nothing is purer and more invigorating than the air of the French Alps!
Between lakes, regional parks and landscapes, altitude is your body's best ally. The higher you climb, the less oxygen is present in the air: your body will then have to compensate by increasing its level of red blood cells, which will considerably improve your physical and sporting performance.
Physiological benefits yes, but also for your mental health! A stunning setting, a mild climate and optimal sunshine: what better energizing virtues to offer to your morale and mood?
