What to do in July and August in Val d'Isère?

After the winter, the mountains emerge from their beautiful cloak of white to reveal a completely different landscape of greenery, lakes and peaks… sports heaven for energetic visitors wishing to explore the mountains and a peaceful haven for those in search of a breath of fresh air away from the pressure of day-to-day life and the noise of the city.

Enjoy the summer vibe between sport and sweet idleness

In summer, it’s all happening in Val d’Isère with a whole string of events and a host of activities. For example:

  • Did you know that 50% of Val d’Isère’s municipal territory belongs to the Vanoise National Park? During your walks here, you may come across some amazing flora and wildlife such as bearded vultures, eagles, ibex, chamois and marmots!
  • Visit Ouillette lake, which you can reach directly from the Solaise gondola lift, to feast your eyes on an extraordinary panoramic view, fish for trout or just relax in one of the deck chairs at the restaurant.
  • If you’re more into football, trampolining, crazy golf, swimming or massages, then head for the sports park in Le Manchet centre, or the Centre Aquasportif.
  • For a refreshing break to recuperate afterwards, take a dip in one of the outdoor swimming pools: le Relais, le Blizzard and l’Altitude!
  • Try an alternative way to explore the mountains by taking to the MTB trails of the Tignes – Val d’Isère Bike Park! To find out more click here.
