  5. Summer area Les Arcs / Peisey-Vallandry - Aiguille Rouge

The highest point is 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, without forgetting the prestigious and magnificent Mont Blanc right across from you.

To get there from Arc 1800, simple as:
- take the Transarc gondola 
- walk down and take the Varet gondola (the less courageous ones 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 gondola !

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


Price 1 day with Varet/Aiguille Rouge : Adult (13 yrs old +) 20€ and Child (5 to 12 yrs old included) 16€.

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!
