  • Hours of relaxation or exercise, at your own pace, amid the snow-covered immensity of the larch forests for a return to nature in the company of the incredible Charbonnel glacier.
  • Its biathlon stadium, created in 1998, attracts top bi-athletes who find in Bessans the perfect training ground. High altitude and guaranteed snow!
    If you fancy taking a closer look at this sport, take a 100% biathlon holiday to discover ski-skating techniques and try your hand at rifle shooting. Starting at 10 metres with a laser or lead-shot rifle, you’ll get a taste of how the experts feel later, at 50 metres!
  • Family tip: Why not let your children have Alpine or Nordic skiing lessons in Bessans while you perfect your ski-skating style or your diagonal technique. Good idea isn’t it?
