Walking and Hiking in Les Gets
and The Portes du Soleil
Les Gets is a hiking and walking paradise! Set among the picturesque mountains in the French Alps there are many marked walking and hiking trails for all levels of walkers and hikers. There are family walks with great places to stop for a picnic and more challenging all day hikes, some have gourmet mountain restaurants on the routes – we can help you find the best walking trails during your stay.
The mountains offer a great place to explore the alpine flora and fauna, wander through meadows, cross over rivers and brooks and wind through the valleys in awe of the ever-changing scenery. The peace and tranquillity found walking in the mountains is a great way to relax on a summer holiday.
Walkers can use the ski lifts which run in the summer, to explore the higher ground with minimum effort! There are many mountain hiking routes which are clearly signposted starting from the lifts. However, if you like a challenge then making the climb up to the higher peaks affords the most amazing views. From many hiking routes around Les Gets it is possible to see the magnificent Mont Blanc mountain range when looking one way and to see Lac Leman looking another!
We have many guides for all types of walks and hikes in the area and we can provide guides for hiking. If you are going for a day hike ask our chef to make you a picnic or we can advise you of which mountain restaurants will be on your route. For hiking further afield around our region we can provide transport to and from your starting/finishing points.
