GET AWAY FROM IT ALL….
In summer, VALLOIRE is a hiking area spanning 14,000 hectares, sculpted by generations of farmers and shepherds and criss-crossed with trails connecting the pastures or leading to the highest surrounding peaks, from the Col du Télégraphe (1556 m) to the Col du Galibier (2642 m).
In winter, our hiking trails will let you discover the hamlets making up VALLOIRE, take you to the top of the La Brive cable car so you can take the path for La Séa and admire the views, and we even have dedicated snowshoe trails.
In winter and in summer, our professional mountain guides and monitors will tell you the story of Valloire, and will show you the flora, fauna and little secrets of the Vallée d’Or.
Valloire offers exceptional, authentic mountain scenery. The beauty of nature is everywhere you look on our kilometres of hiking trails.
In this majestic and imposing setting, you can take a detour and get to know some of the local inhabitants, who will be delighted to tell you a few stories or anecdotes about their village.
