Positive altitude in Les 3 Vallées
The dawn light sculpts the ridges and paints a picture for the new day ahead. Grab your map and compass, fasten your rucksack, lace up your shoes ... and shut the door behind you.
Welcome to the outside world: no matter which itinerary, altitude, or path you choose, everything here is an adventure and age is irrelevant.
The hunt for blueberries is an expedition, just like scaling a mountain or trail running. The freshness of the forest has the same allure for every type of explorer.
In our mountains, the trees, streams, and minerals capture your senses, the rivers and lakes promise wonderful fishing or invigorating swims, the lush grass of the vast alpine pastures invites you to enjoy games of chase or naps in the sunshine.
Reach new heights and get back to what really counts….
And once the sun has gone down, stay outside if you wish, letting the night slowly embrace you so as not to miss the beauty of a sky full of stars... before the arrival of a new day, waiting to be discovered.
Up high, nature takes us back to the essential, just waiting to be experienced in so many ways.
