Bessans the Nordic soul
Bessans, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this winter, has been awarded the Nordic France label and is a reference among Nordic destinations. Situated on a high plateau at an altitude of 1750 metres, the “Nordic capital of the Alps” has 133 km of groomed runs and an international biathlon stadium. It hosts major events and offers a wide range of Nordic activities.
On skis, on foot or on snowshoes, this vast high altitude plateau, both technical and pleasant, will delight you with its change of scenery and its natural majesty.
Outdoor activities also invite you to contemplate the landscapes and the winter atmosphere. Snowshoeing, ice climbing, ski joering, dog sledding, … all the elements and all altitudes are at your disposal!

Classified as one of the “Most Beautiful Villages in France”, Bonneval sur Arc looks like an open-air cinema set. The resort-village of Bonneval sur Arc attracts skiers looking for wide open spaces as well as holidaymakers looking to recharge their batteries.
More than the number of kilometres of slopes, it is the quality of its domain that makes Bonneval sur Arc an exceptional ski spot. Located between 1,800 and 3,000 m in altitude, the snow falls in abundance and the season lasts from December to May.
