A Land of Champions
A great opportunity to (re) discover Tignes, labeled "active and sporting town". If the resort is known to be a land of champions for the events it hosts (The Stars of the sport, Tour de France, L1 football rehearsal, trails ...), it is also a big playground (golf Mountain biking, hiking, summer skiing) and nautical thanks to its lake and its highest beach in Europe (2 100m above sea level). Paddle, catamaran, water jump, hot jumping ... No doubt, Tignes has something to refresh your ideas!
