Tignes and its village

Nestling at an altitude of 2000m, Tignes is one of the biggest ski resorts in France and one of the most beautiful in Europe! It is linked to Val d’Isère to form an area of over 300km of pistes. But did you know what the mountains are like in summer? Now that it has shed its thick white coat, Tignes also offers a host of summer activities for all the family to enjoy.
At the foot of the resort, at an altitude of 1550m, lies the village of Les Brévières (15min walk from the campsite), which has preserved its authenticity as a mountain village where restaurants, bars and small, typical Alpine chalets made of stone and wood are all grouped together in a friendly atmosphere. Just the thing to recharge your batteries! A natural resort by definition, enjoy a holiday in the fresh air, between larch and fir trees, in an exceptional setting in the heart of the Savoyard mountains. Slow tourists will love a picnic break on the banks of the Isère.

Lake Tignes

Nature lovers will love a day out in the fresh air. This natural mountain lake, perched at an altitude of 2100m in the heart of the Tarentaise Valley and bordered on all sides by mountainous terrain, offers a ‘beach’ atmosphere at altitude. Rising from the highest point in the resort, the Glacier de la Grande Motte, the crystal-clear waters of the lake are a visual feast for the eyes, with their superb bluish hues. You can walk around the lake to enjoy a unique hike, or if you’re feeling more sporty, take part in the water sports on offer: stand-up paddle, kayak, canoe or even blob-jump or water-jump!
With a surface area of 7km² and depths of 30m in some places, the Lac de Tignes is a favourite with both amateur and experienced trout fishermen.

Tignes dam

A historic symbol of the village of Tignes, the Tignes dam nevertheless hides a darker past. Originally situated in the heart of the valley, Tignes was engulfed by the waters in the 1950s, forcing the Tignards to rebuild the village higher up the valley. Today, a mystical dimension hovers around the Lac de Tignes lake, whose memories remain beneath the surface…
In 2002, sculptor Livio Benedetti created La Dame du Lac, a tribute to the old Tignes and a symbol of hope for the future, visible on the road to Val d’Isère. To find out more about this impressive edifice, take advantage of guided tours throughout the summer and explore the heart of the dam.

Tignes Bike Park

Open from June to September, discover the mountains in a different way with an original and unusual activity! This activity is accessible to all ages, so don’t miss out on the thrill of a downhill mountain bike ride, and have fun as a group or as a family on the different slopes. Now that winter has given way to summer, the Tignes-Val d’Isère ski area is converting its 300km of ski slopes into mountain bike trails! Electrically-assisted bikes are also available for hire, and you can be accompanied by one of our instructors. Whether you’re a professional skier on the red runs or a nostalgic mountain biker… try your hand at cycling! And to top it all off, enjoy the magnificent panoramic views all around.

Hiking in the Alps

There’s probably no better way to spend a day than exploring the hiking trails. Whether you’re on your own or supervised by professionals, you can discover the sublime landscapes of the Massif de la Vanoise at your own pace. It’s a great opportunity to observe the wild flora and fauna, while clearing your mind. Even in summer, take advantage of the ski lifts to get to the summit! Whether you’re a keen sportsman or just want to enjoy a superb view over the valley, the mountain is yours! Some of the walks on offer are themed, so don’t hesitate to check out the programme of events…

Extreme sports

The mountains are the perfect place to discover extreme sports! Whether on the ground or in the air, take in the landscape from every angle. Nearby, you can try your hand at paragliding, canyoning, rock-climbing or, for the more adventurous, the Via Ferrata. The Via Ferrata de la Daille takes you up the rock faces to the summits. You won’t have time to get bored!


An original activity to share as a family, sure to please young and old alike, supervised by Cindy Duport (La Grande Odyssée champion). Immerse yourself in the world of sled dogs and explore the mountain and the many trails of Tignes. Keep your eyes peeled for marmots along the way. Depart from the foot of Grande Balme and head back down to the resort to take in the colourful panoramas. Don’t worry, the dogs will adapt to your pace!
