Aiguille Rouge


> Activities > Aiguille Rouge

The highest point here at more than 3226m, the Aiguille Rouge offers you a 360° panoramic view to take your breath away!

Discover the Italian Alps, Mont Pourri, the Pierra Menta, not forgetting the prestigious and magnificent Mont Blanc facing you.

To get there from Arc 1800, you just:
- take the Transarc telecabin
- walk down and take the Varet telecabin (the less courageous can go down on the Arcabulle chairlift)
- climb into the cable car that will take you to the top of the Aiguille Rouge and you’re there!

From Arc 2000, nothing could be simpler; all you have to do is take the Varet telecabin!

Easy, isn’t it?
Don’t forget your camera, you could regret it ;-)

Introduction to glacier walking on the Aiguille Rouge:

Walking as part of a roped-up team, learn about crampon techniques, the world of the high mountains and more particularly that of the Aiguille Rouge, les Arcs’ highest peak at 3226 m… this is what an introduction to glacier walking promises!
