Bessans is THE Nordic resort of excellence! In the heart of Savoy, it is one of the 6 resorts of Haute Maurienne Vanoise.

The nordic soul



A land of legends, beautiful peaks

Under the benevolent attention of the Charbonnel glacier, in a remarkable mountain setting, its vast northern plateau and numerous hamlets with traditional architecture are an invitation to a constantly renewed journey…

Famous for its legends around its carved wooden devil, Bessans is above all an international biathlon centre. In summer, the stadium allows you to rollerblade, ski-wheel and practice shooting.

A place of passage once frequented by peddlers who passed from France to Italy, a multitude of paths offer walks each more beautiful than the next!

The hamlets surrounding Bessans are steeped in history, legends and religion. Places of life in the high mountains, they are essential and deserve your visit.
