Thrill-seekers, you’re in the right place. If you’d like to get out of your comfort zone, the resort of les Arcs will become your playground. Speed, adrenalin and excitement will punctuate your stay in our beautiful Tarentaise Valley. In the water, on the ground or in the air, we can offer you a wide range of summer activities to make your holiday a unique experience. 


Fly over Les Arcs… not in an aeroplane, nor in a helicopter but on a para-glider. An activity offered in our beautiful resort and which will enable you to get away into the skies – who has never dreamed of flying? Solo or in a two-seater, take off and enjoy a moment out of time attached to your sail. A para-glider flight is quite simply amazing.
