Although we are famous for skiing in winter, there’s a lot of things happening in the valley over the summer months too.
Check them out. Walking, climbing, via ferrata, cycling, mountain bikes and many more. Don’t forget the white water sports on the River Guisane and Durance either.
The lifts begin opening from 30th June until the 2nd September. See the Tourist Office for more details on dates and opening times.
Less strenuous pursuits are available. Walk in the flower-filled meadows to rustic restaurants in 17th century villages, visit the walled Vauban town of Briancon and visit the Medieval festival or Bastille day re-enactments.

It was announced yesterday that the Hautes-Alpes is right back on the cycling map and will feature in 3 stages of the Tour de France 2017. There will be a great atmosphere in Serre Chevalier with Stage 17 finishing in Serre Chevalier on July 19th, and stage 18 starting from Briancon on July 20th with a tough finish at the top of the Col d’Izoard.
Finally Embrun will see the start of Stage 19. It will be here that the Yellow Jersey will be confirmed. Why not come and join in the party? We’re just a short walk from the main road to watch the end stages of the race on 18th, or head along the village paths to Villenevue and witness the finish itself.
