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!

We even offer a free session of Electric mountain biking which is a must-do activity.

Inclusive Whitewater Rafting

The Alps are also famous for their rapids and the rapids near Tignes and Val’ are some of the best - and most exhilarating - in the Alps. This is why we include rafting for free. It’s by far our most popular activity and promises exhilarating fun for all ages 8+. A sociable day out with transport included.

For the (free) lake activities!

Tignes impressive lake is the centerpiece to this resort and hosts many great activities (most of which are included for free on our multipass). 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, Optimist sailing, or try fly fishing with an instructor. For something more offbeat - try water balling: which is rolling around the lake inside huge inflatable balls.
