1. Ice climbing In Chamonix
Chamonix, famous for its ice falls, features over 200 routes for climbers of all skill levels. The most popular place for beginners to try ice climbing is Argentière, which has various basic climbs. The Col des Montets and Le Tour are two more notable ice climbing locations.
For beginners and intermediates wishing to enhance their abilities, some mountain guides offer ice climbing classes where you may practice with the assistance of an expert guide. Three-day climbing courses for the more experienced will take you to some of Chamonix’s greatest and most difficult ice waterfalls.
2. Paragliding in Crans Montana
Mieusey, located 50 kilometers west of Chamonix (France), claims to be the birthplace of paragliding in 1974. Today, this thrilling sport is becoming increasingly popular, with many paragliding schools in the Alps available to enable you soar far over the gorgeous valleys in the Alps. Tandem flights are the most popular since no prior experience is required.
This type of paragliding allows you to sit back and relax while a highly certified instructor flies you over the breathtaking scenery of Crans Montana resort.
3. Ice diving in Tignes
The Tignes-Val d’Isère region is rich in natural beauty. Among these is the natural lake of Tignes 2100, which wears an ice coat in the winter. The ice, which may be up to 2 meters thick, develops and reforms on a regular basis, creating a really spectacular dance of light and shadow. Accompanied by a licensed diving instructor, you will go on a one-of-a-kind journey, day or night, in perfect confidence, in the town where the renowned film « Le Grand Bleu / The Big Blue » was shot (ice scene in Peru)!
4. Dog sledding in Courchevel
Driven by a professional musher, sat securely on the sled and wrapped in a fur blanket, looking for animal footprints and feeling the adrenaline of husky sledding through the Courchevel landscape. Take the wheel and try your hand at leading the group. Whoa!
5. Go to Savoyard Dinner on a Snow Scooter
This is a one-of-a-kind evening that begins with a snow-scooter ride on the ski area; via forest pathways, on pistes, and enjoying the excitement of « off-piste » driving. One or two guides will accompany you on a one-hour snow scooter tour of Courchevel, taking you to a woodcutter’s cabin where your Savoyard evening will begin, complete with music, wine, and traditional Savoyard food.
6. Hot air ballon flight in Megève
If you have a cause to celebrate, why not take off with the sun rising and soar over the ski resort while sipping Champagne high above the mountains? In private or shared baskets, you’ll get a really one-of-a-kind perspective of the ski slope below and over the valley to Mont Blanc visible in the distance. A brilliant present idea and a fantastic experience not to be missed in Megève.
