Valfréjus, a pioneering spirit!

Far from the crowds, come to Valfréjus in summer for a return to the roots in the heart of nature.

At the gateway to Italy, a multitude of paths take you through larch forests and alpine pastures dotted with grazing animals.

Go horseriding or cycling to explore the area or, for the more energetic, try a via ferrata trail or zipwire! The landscape is dotted with fortifications and chapels that are well worth a visit.

Easy to reach via the motorway or by high-speed train to Modane, the resort has a long tradition of mountain sports and was built at an ideal location for this type of activity.

Exploring

  • On foot or on horseback, take to the hiking trails to explore the wide open spaces of this wilderness
  • Love cycling too? Test your endurance as well as your calf muscles on the 14 uphill hairpin bends from Modane to Valfréjus!
  • Prefer going cross-country on a mountain bike? We have just what you need with the opening of the lifts all summer!
  • For those happy moments to share with the family, a whole host of activities is available at the resort
