Strolls & hikes in Les Arcs

From family strolls to energetic hikes, les Arcs’ summer area offers more than 200 km of walking trails with 6,700m of cumulated gross ascent. Truly somewhere for exploring the great outdoors with something for everyone …

Walking alone is a chance to dream and admire the scenery while enjoying the silence offered by wide open spaces.

Walking in a group becomes a moment for sharing and conversation. You can be accompanied by professionals who will be there to offer advice and show you our area and its hidden treasures.

When choosing the route which suits you best, you must take account of the weather, your physical fitness and, of course, your wishes. Take the time to gather information to discover all the opportunities on offer to you.

The free walking map will show you the routes in the les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry, Villaroger and Bourg Saint Maurice sector. Also available to you is an IGN (UK= Ordonnance Survey) 1/35th scale map and the topographical map with more than de 60 marked routes on the les Arcs-Bourg Saint Maurice slope and the versant du Soleil.
