A land of legends and beautiful peaks
Under the watchful eye of the Charbonnel glacier in a remarkable mountain setting, the vast Nordic plateau and the many hamlets with their traditional architecture, are a permanent invitation to go on a journey…
Its devil sculpted in wood is behind many a well-known legend, but Bessans is even more famous as a major international venue for biathlon events. In summer, the biathlon stadium becomes a hotspot for rollerblading, rollerskiing and archery.
Once frequented by peddlers, this place of passage between France and Italy boasts a multitude of footpaths that invite you to enjoy some extremely beautiful walks!
The hamlets surrounding Bessans are steeped in history, legends and religion. These inhabited places high in the mountains are key features that are definitely worth visiting.
