A winter holiday in the mountains: a wide range of winter activities is available because in the Giffre Valley and at the Grand Massif…, the GREAT OUTDOORS has endless possibilities! 

Choose how you want to spend your winter holiday in the mountains! The villages of Chatillon sur Cluses, La Rivière Enverse, Verchaix, Morillon and Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval offer a wide range of winter activities, whether you are looking for a relaxing break, sporty and/or fun holiday! Far from the crowds and the “concrete resorts”, nature is all around you here and is the perfect place for trying out some new winter activities, with something to attract and seduce people of all ages! Here, you can choose to go hiking on snow-shoes, admire the views from up above while paragliding, enjoy a moment of pampering at yoga classes, spas or with a massage! Hang on to the ice falls, ride a Fat Bike on the snow or hold on tight to a dogsled, children can try out pony-sledding or ski-joering, whereas the more daring could try their hand at caving! Aim higher and admire the superb views on a helicopter ride around Mont-Blanc! Push your limits by attempting winter canyoning and fly down the slopes just like children did a long time ago, on a Yooner
