Enjoy long treks, easy walks, mountaineering and rock climbing in the heart of the Ecrins National Park. Enjoy some sunbathing by the outdoor pool and cool down sliding down the waterslides. In Les Deux Alpes there is a swimming pool, artificial skating rink, tennis courts, a 9-hole golf course, mini golf, 2 summer luge runs, a trampoline area, a climbing wall, 2 archery fields, a sports centre, and a riding centre, plus clubs to entertain children from 6 months to 16 years old. Les Deux Alpes is also home to Summer Skiing. You can get to Les Deux Alpes by gondola as well as car.
