WALKS & HIKING
Dare to gain altitude!
Dare to climb by taking the lifts spread over the whole valley and follow the many marked trails that are offered to you.
Enjoy the mountain scenery, the beauty of the rhododendrons when they bloom and the undergrowth of larches, the only conifers in Europe that lose their needles in winter. With a bit of luck, you will see marmots, roe deer or Bruyère roosters!
And don't forget to take a break at the picnic area for example: it is equipped with planchas!
