About Tignes

Tignes is set around a beautiful lake which hosts a whole heap of (mostly free) mountain and water based fun for all ages. Many of the activities are included within our Active Packs. We also include free mountain bike hire and even a free biking lift pass! Tignes is famous for the weird and wonderful (if slightly wacky) activities like the Giant Slide, Water balls and the Crazy Airbag. But we really love Tignes for its sheer variety: the best summer skiing and boarding in Europe (until early August); the resorts’ hot and sunny climate (300 days sunshine a year); and its great golf courses, via ferrata and horse riding.

One thing’s for sure - you’ll never be bored in Tignes!

Why Choose Hotel Le Ski DOr?

For our inclusive mountain bike hire

The Alps are famous for their biking and whether you’re a complete newcomer, a fanatical rider or a family looking for a (very) fun day out, then you’re going to want to give this a go! So grab a bike from our racks and go out for a potter or a trail ride whenever the mood takes you. We can also organise Electric mountain bikes, but we warn you - you will be HOOKED! We also offer a free biking lift pass which will save you almost £100 over other resorts.

For a little bit of luxe!

If you like a little more comfort - but relish being active from dawn til’ dusk trying lots of new sports - then you’re going to like the Hotel Ski D’Or. The bedrooms are spacious and enjoy stunning views of the mountains, and the spa is where you will want to wash away the day as you recuperate in the hotel's hammam/steam room and the sauna.

For lots of free lake activities!

Tignes' impressive lake is the centrepiece to so many great activities (and most of them are included within our Active Packs. Try Acroland for the Giant Slide and the Water Jump; or a session of paddleboarding, kayaking or pedalo’s. For a little extra, you can go catamaran sailing, try fly fishing (with an instructor) or roll around the lake in crazy human-size Waterballs, too.

For the inclusive biking lift pass

All our holidays to Tignes come with a free walking lift pass and a free biking lift pass, too. No other resort offers a free biking lift pass and this will save you £100. You can use it to explore over 350 Kms of tracks and trails (on two feet or two wheels) which wind through stunning alpine scenery that teem with wildlife.

For the sunshine record

Tignes is one of the most southern resorts in the Alps and enjoys more than 300 day’s sunshine a year. This means the summers are predictably warm and dry and you’ll return home with a deep suntan as well as a plethora of new activities and experiences under your belt.

Family-friendly fun

Tignes was made for families! The sheer variety of activities on offer will ensure that adults and kids of all ages, (from 4 to 17), are well entertained - with more free and inclusive activities than you can shake a kayak paddle at! The hotel enjoys a central position close to the activities and the lake – so it’s ideal for families to come and go when little legs get tired. And all kids love the outdoor pool next door and our own Active Kids Club (in house) which operates for five half days a week. Plenty of time for parents to enjoy some “time out” or get to relax while their children go wild, making new friends in-club.

Bedrooms...take your pick

The hotel has 27 en-suite bedrooms and almost all the rooms enjoy the sun during the day and panoramic views of the mountains and the glacier on the Grand Motte.
