Activity week in Alpe d'huez
This week in Alpe d'huez is ideal for those looking to enjoy the mountins in summer - if you would like adjustments to the itinerary, do email us with what would work best for you.
- Saturday - arrive in resort:
Get to grips with Alpe d'huez - have a look around and familiarise yourself with the town
Take the DMC & Pic Blanc Cable cars to the top of the Pic Blanc & take in the views (on a clear day, you can see Mont Blanc & local folklore states 1/5 of the French land mass...).
On your way down, stop at the half way station & walk to the Lac La Fare. Upon your return to ADH, if you have any energy left, walk down the old roman path way to Huez, taking the Televillage lift back up to town. All lifts included on your VISALP pass
A day at the sports centre. Outdoor or indoor pool? Your choice, plus over 15 other activities that are included on your VISALP pass.
The local passion is cycling, so take to a bike. There are over 30 suggested local routes, from the beginner to the experienced downhill racer. Our suggestion would be to start easy, perhaps heading for the Lac du Verney, 7km from ADH. All lifts included on your VISALP pass
Continue trying to tick off the things you can use your VISALP pass for at the sports Centre, make sure you make time for the Luge run, about as much fun you can have whilst sitting down...!
If your 'saddle' has recovered from Tuesday, fancy trying to cycle the famous 21 hairpin bends from the valley floor at Bourg D'Oisan to Alp D'huez? Timed rides are available each Thursday morning.
If not, there are more sedate activities from golf to Archery.
How about trying some climbing? The local area around Lac Besson has routes for all ability levels & if you need instruction, this can of course be arranged - just call us on 0203 137 7678
Finish the week with a trip to remember, a tandem parapente flight between Alp D'Huez & Bourg D'oisan would be a fantastic reminder of your week here.
Back in the car, its time to head back
