When it Shines

Although most of the outdoors sports action happens in the Espace Killy ski area, there are still loads of other alternative activities for a fun filled day in Tignes.


You can hire a guide to take you on a hike or you can pick up details of trails around Tignes from the tourist office. Don’t forget to go well prepared for every situation. It is important to remember that the weather in the mountains can be extreme with rapid changes in conditions, and if walking it may take a while to get from A to B.


This is a must-do activity, only we haven’t mustered up enough courage yet! The idea is to ski off the side of a cliff and swoop around over the resort until you float back down, guiding yourself back down towards the lake. Until you’re qualified and feel capable, it’s possible to do this with an instructor, making it a little less scary!


Why not take a flight over the picturesque mountains and have a birdseye view of Italy and Mont Blanc?
