Sunny Mountaintop Oasis Claire Erskine, Product Manager

"If you're looking for a resort with varied skiing and a short transfer, then Alpe d'Huez is a perfect choice. After arriving in Grenoble at 9am, we were on the slopes by 1pm - you can't get much better than that!"

Activities in Alpe d'Huez

You'll find a range of activities available in Alpe d'Huez. There's an outdoor ice rink where you can give skating or curling a try or you can have a go at toboganning with a virtual reality mask.

The Alpe d'Huez Ice Caves at 2700m are also highly recommended. A magical grotto of glistening sculptures and fairytale figures, expert ice sculptors create an exhibition around a different theme every year. The Grotte de Glace can be found at 2700m and access is via the Grandes Rousses (DMC) cable car.

Taking the cable car to the top of the Pic Blanc is well worth a visit on a fine day even for non-skiers as the views at 3330m are unbeatable.
