About Tignes

Tignes is set around a beautiful lake which offers lots of activities for all ages: from those ‘must-do-activities’ like via ferrata, kayaking and paddle boarding to the weird and wonderful (if slightly banana’s) Water balls... Giant Slide... Crazy Airbag... to name but a few.

  • Go Zorbing on the lake!

  • Whitewater rafting - it’s a blast

  • Bike down to Lac Chevrils (beginners)

  • Try E-biking for a day!

Where is It?

Tignes is part of the protected Vanoise National Park, about 9 hours drive from Calais and under 3 hours from Geneva. The National Park that surrounds Tignes is very pretty and teems with wildlife, rugged scenery and mountain trails galore.

  • 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. Enjoy nice cafes, sunbathing spots and kids activities which run along its shoreline. Some resort based activities are included for free with our Tourist Office Multipass.

Mountain Biking

Tignes is basically heaven for the biker in you. There’s a whole heap of terrain to explore - from cross country to freeride trails and bike parks with jumps and berms and terrain for beginner riders too. You’ll even get a free bikers’ lift pass to explore the trails (all 300 km of them) which stretch over into Val d’Isere. There’s more than enough terrain to keep you busy all week and the area is simply stunning.

Expect some fantastic beginner and family rides around the lake and valley floor. Once your confidence builds, why not rent a full suspension bike for the day and try some intermediate trails using your free lift pass.
