Summer Activities

In summertime, the 3 Valleys transforms into a playground for those that love the outdoors. There is an endless choice of walking, hiking and biking routes of varying distances and levels of difficulty. And the scenery is simply stunning.

In July and August, you can expect beautiful weather. Combined with the fresh Alpine air, it makes for an ideal break away from it all.

Here are some of the activities that you can do in La Tania or nearby during the summer months.

In La Tania itself, there's an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, volley ball / basketball court, boules pitch, downhill mountain bike race course and table tennis tables. In summer, there is a weekly Giant barbeque in the forest.

Then just below Courchevel Moriond (10 mins by car / free shuttle bus) is Europe's largest mountain pool /wellness complex.

Of course from La Tania, you can access all of the 3 Valleys terrain through the lift systems for a choice of hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, paragliding/parapenting, walking, via ferrata, ice climbing, fishing etc...

In the surrounding area, you can go white water rafting, hydrospeeding , quadbiking, paintballing, archery, clay pigeon shooting and horseriding. There is a 9 hole golf course in Courchevel and an 18 hole golf course in Meribel.

In nearby beautiful Annecy, you can go wake boarding and water skiing.

Or you can just simply relax in the sun with a book and some music perhaps.

Dont forget that you can go summer skiing and snowboarding in nearby Tignes. The Tignes glacier has up to 16 lifts open in summer and there is up to 20km of pistes and a funpark up near the top of the Grand Motte. Beware as summer skiing is from 7.15am to 1pm.

There are plenty of places of interest to visit in the region as day trips. The beautiful village of Annecy and its famous lake is a short drive away (70km). Or you could perhpas take a trip to Mont Blanc (90km) for some serious climbing or for those less inclined you can ride the cable car to Aiguille du Midi from Chamonix to enjoy spectacular views of Mont Blanc.
