From the town at 1860m to the Pic Blanc at 3300m which has a panoramic view across 1/5th of France, the resort is a true outdoor playground.
With its southern facing slopes and generous sun exposure, Alpe d’Huez offers perfect conditions for holidays as a couple, with your family or with your friends.
Renowned for its ski resort and 21 bends for cyclists; the crisp mountain air, wide open spaces and stunning panoramic views are also not to be forgotten and make Alpe d’Huez a go to location.
Indoors and outdoors, competitive or just for fun, there are a host of sporting activities that can offer you hours of fun as well as adrenaline fuelled moments. From mountain biking and road cycling to via ferrata, mountain hikes, parapente, aviation, horseback riding, a pool and an outdoor ice rink there is something for everybody.
