Nestled at the foot of the Glacier des Sources de l’Isère, protected by the imposing gateway formed by the La Daille Gorge, the village of Val d’Isère takes shape in a definitely majestic natural setting. It is these peaks, these valleys, these slopes that so inspire visitors and that Val d’Isère aspires to preserve.
Beyond the village and the ski area, it is the kingdom of the ibex and the marmot, emblematic animals of the Vanoise. There are no less than 400 chamois in the year, 150 ibex in wintering and two emblematic couples of birds: the bearded vultures and golden eagles that fly over the village and its trails.
On the side of the flora, it is more than forty protected floral species on the commune of Val d’Isère such as the Androsace Alpine.
