The most visited ski resort in the world!
From 700m to 3,250m, in the heart of the Tarentaise valley, La Plagne is a natural source of well-being and oxygenation, with Mont Blanc in the spotlight. The most visited resort in the world, it abounds in activities and XXL spaces so that everyone can renew their energy in peace and quiet, summer and winter alike. As such, it has been awarded the "Qualité Tourisme" and "Famille Plus" labels.
Whether in the valley, the village or at the summit, La Plagne is an outdoor paradise. Its exceptional environment and its diversity of panoramas (including its incredible 360° panoramic view of the French Alps), its 10 resorts, its typical Savoyard villages (Aime-la-Plagne, Champagny-en-Vanoise, La Plagne-Tarentaise), La Plagne is a gigantic open-air playground for relaxation, sport and contemplation!
An energising summer
In the summer, rivers, lakes, glaciers, forests, gorges, gentle and steep slopes provide a mountain of activities... and stories!
Hiking, whether contemplative or sporty, is practised in the form of orienteering, thanks to 12 routes to be criss-crossed with map and compass in hand, to find the hidden beacons. The walks, day or night, can be recounted in order to enrich this rich mountain heritage. The 150 km of mountain bike trails, the bike park, the Pump track and the enduro routes are sure to satisfy all fans of 2-wheelers, classic or electric versions. Here, life-size summer activities can be enjoyed from all angles: in white or calm water, in the air, perched in trees, on the cliffside, on a "mountain cart", vertically in via ferrata mode, or horizontally, on your stomach, for a 125 m descent in ventriglide mode!
In winter, welcome to ski paradise! The ski area is indeed well on its way. Paradiski is 425 km of downhill slopes for all levels, 2 ski glaciers, miles of ski touring and cross-country skiing possibilities, all with an ultra-modern network of cultivated snow. Mushing, night in a snow groomer, far north expeditions, ice climbing, ski joëring... the pleasures of winter are both multiple and singular. As such, La Plagne has the only Olympic bobsleigh and skeleton track in France, accessible to anyone over 1m 30. An experience in the image of the resort: energising and unique!
