Champagny

At the gateway to the wonderful Vanoise National Park, Champagny is a traditional Alpine village set in outstanding natural surroundings.

Referred to as the 'great garden of France' in French literature, the Vanoise National Park was initially created to protect the Alpine ibex from extinction. With its numerous discovery trails there is no better way to discover the protected wildlife, flora and cultural heritage.

The village of Champagny has retained its long Alpine tradition but also offers first class leisure activities. Apart from all ubiquitous mountain activities, try out the leisure park, fun pool complex, a tree top adventure parc. The gondola lift in Champagny will take you up to 2000m where you can discover the fantastic panorama of the Vanoise glaciers. Cycle back down on dedicated mountain bike tracks or paraglide down on a tandem flight.
