Useful Extras
Great Things To Try

Where is It?

Tignes is at the far end of the beautiful Tarantaise Valley in the French Alps. As part of the protected Vanoise National Park, it teems with wildlife, rugged alpine scenery and mountain trails galore: It’s basically heaven for the sporty alpinist and active family.

  • Self drives: 8-9 hours from Calais
  • Fly to Geneva (Gatwick, Luton, Edinburgh, Bristol, Liverpool)
  • Flight time: 1hr 20mins; Transfer 2hrs 50mins

The Activities

Tignes is a bit of a gem! Sporty types will love the sheer amount of activities on offer: from lake sports… to mountain biking… walking… and summer skiing on Europe’s highest glacier.

Tignes’ large lake is an impressive centre-point to the resort and great for water sports and the slightly wacky activities it offers (mostly for free on our Multipass). Some nice cafes, sunbathing spots and kids activities run along its shoreline and you can try everything from paddle boarding to human-size water balls and even fly fishing (with an instructor)

Lots of activities are included for free with our Tourist Office Multipass which will keep you busy enough, but if you’ve got any spare time - the area is also renowned for its rock climbing, its horse riding, road biking and glacier walking to name a few.

Mountain & Road Biking

Tignes is basically heaven for the biker in you. There’s a whole heap of terrain to explore - from cross country to freeride/downhill and bike parks; with trails for beginner riders too. We even give you a free bikers’ lift pass to explore its world class tracks and trails which stretch over into neighbouring Val D’Isere. The area is plenty big enough to keep you busy all week with over 300 Km of trails and is renowned for its long descents, crowd-free trails and stunning terrain.

Expect some fantastic beginner and family rides around the lake and valley floor with a few suitable rides using the lifts. Why not rent a full suspension bike for the day (our Active reps can help you do this in resort), and you’ll get even more out of the terrain.
