Top 5 summer activities

What to do in summer in Valfréjus ? Fun and sporty activities with friends, hiking up to 3000 meters, discovering wide open spaces, via ferrata... without forgetting to rest (it's vacations!). Our Top 5 activities in Valfréjus.

Hiking up to 3000m at Mont Thabor

Above Valfréjus, the Mont Thabor offers a summit at more than 3000 meters accessible to all in summer. The hike starts directly from the heart of the resort or from Le Lavoir (carriage road from the resort to Le Lavoir). Then it's off for a long hike to Thabor. We start by taking the GR5 in the direction of the Southern Alps, we skirt Italy, we discover high altitude lakes, mountain pastures, geological curiosities... then we climb to the summit where the mineral landscape becomes lunar. A summit that offers an exceptional panorama on prestigious summits: Grandes Jorasses, Cervin, Grande Casse, Mont Viso...
Please note: if the hike does not present any particular difficulty in summer (snow is still present until mid-July, check the conditions before leaving), it is quite long (count a big day to go and return). The easiest way is to spend the night at the Thabor hut to do this hike over two days.

Take on the via ferrata of the Grand Vallon in Valfréjus

Go for the via ferrata of the Grand Vallon

Do you know the via-ferrata? A practice that makes climbing accessible to all. Equipped with a harness, a helmet and a lanyard, you are constantly attached to a cable that runs along the walls. You then use rungs, ladders, even footbridges and Nepalese bridges. The via ferrata of the Grand Vallon, above the resort offers great sensations. We evolve in the gorges of the torrent which allows us to approach a beautiful waterfall. If you are prone to vertigo, don't come and simply observe the practitioners from a footbridge which overhangs the via-ferrata. For all the others, it is an activity not to be missed during your stay in Valfréjus. Free access (equipment required) or with professional supervision.
To reach the start of the via ferrata of the Grand Vallon, meet at the arrival of the Charmasson chairlift (access by car or by hiking), then park 50 m above. After the small wooden bridge, turn left and go down for 350m.

Resting along the streams

Vacations also mean... doing nothing! Take advantage of the mountain pastures and streams of Valfréjus to rest and relax.
Discover the new aqualudic space located near the stream of Charmaix, in the forest area, to enjoy the freshness of the water playground of Valfréjus. Picnic area, games for children, museum panels, and of course the possibility to soak your feet.
In the mountain pastures, lie down, admire the wild orchids, like the vanilla orchis, listen to the marmots whistle, contemplate the summits and the glaciers of the Vanoise National Park... Recharge your batteries and enjoy the great natural and preserved spaces of Valfréjus.
