Summer activities

Practice sports

Just like in winter, you can practice sports in the mountains in summer. There are different sports available according to what you like and your level and physical condition. For example, you can ride a bike in the moutains. You can choose a more or less easy path according to what you want; if you’d rather enjoy the view or really sweat. If the weather is nice, you can also try paragliding. The view over the moutains should be really amazing.

Reconnect with nature

In summer, the nature in the moutains really changes and everything blooms. This makes the perfect scenery to go hiking. Several paths are available whether you are an experienced hiker or a beginner or even if you go hiking with children. You will really be able to discover or rediscover the environment and reconnect with nature. Simply enjoy taking the time to observe the flora and fauna and the breathtaking landscapes.

Summertime in the moutains is also the perfect time to go explore and visit local heritage. Discover how local foold is made or visit museums to better know the history of the region. As ski resorts are less crowded in summer, you can really take the time to enjoy every little thing.

This is even easier if you own an accommodation in a ski resort like Les Menuires for example. This makes vacation all year round possible.
