The purpose of the Tow Surf is simple: it is surfing via a motorized machine. Pulled by the boat, the surfer can come out of the water (on the lake) and reach the necessary speed to stay on the wave. He/she can then release the lifting beam and take advantage of the sensations of surfing! Prices are from £8.
As mad-capped as it sounds! Roll around the surface of the lake inside a giant see through plastic ball! Feel the sensation of walking or rolling on water, great for all ages, superb fun and highly recommended, and not expensive either! From £5 for 15/20 mins.
Via Ferrata & Climbing
Two things Tignes is famous for: Rock climbing on rock faces or climbing walls, and Via Ferrata, which is cross between rock climbing and hiking. Via ferrata is an unusual way to clamber up a rock face and reach the summit using pre-set climbing aids like ropes, wires, ladders, holds and other hardware. Well worth a go!
