Summer snow and high adventure
One of the highest in Europe, this iconic mountain resort comprises three main villages, Le Lac, Val Claret, and Le Lavachet. All three are linked by a free 24-hour bus service, which puts a tempting selection of restaurants and shopping at your fingertips. Its lofty altitude grants the luxury of summer skiing on Glacier de la Grande Motte, open for morning sessions from late June until early August. And if skiing isn’t for you, don’t worry, there’s so many activities on offer that you’ll be spoilt for choice.
6 reasons we think you’ll love summer in Tignes
Lake Tignes
Once the spring heat melts the ice, this glacier-fed lake becomes a hive of activity. Enjoy the gorgeous mountain views as you stroll the lake perimeter footpath or take to the water in your kayak, canoe, stand-up paddleboard or pedalo.
High flying fun
Where do you get the best views? From the air! Witness the majesty of the mountains from the sky on a tandem paragliding flight from Tignes. This unforgettable experience will leave you buzzing for the rest of the day.
Mountain relaxation
Soothing post-hike legs or just taking well-deserved time for yourself? The Wellness and Aquatic Centre “Le Lagon” offers a tempting range of saunas, hammam, and hot tubs... With rates for multiple visits, you could treat yourself to daily pampering sessions.
Adventures on two wheels
During summer months, Tignes swaps skis for tires and opens its renowned mountain bike park. There are easy trails for beginners, technical routes for pros, and everything in between. E-bikes are available too, which makes things a bit more leisurely.
A big hit with thrill seekers, Acroland is a waterpark built on the lake. Its calling card is a series of jump slides that increase in height and propel riders into the air before they splash down into the water.
Ride the river
A rafting expedition on nearby river Isère offers a variety of conditions to suit families with younger kids or keen adrenaline seekers. Speed over rapids and through gorges as you go float down the beautiful tree-lined river.
