Val Thorens Ski Holidays
Famous for its lofty 2,300m altitude, Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe – with a snow record to match. Sitting at the head of the Belleville valley, you can expect dazzling views, a well-designed resort and doorstep access to those velvety Three Valleys slopes.
A purpose-built paradise
Val Thorens is an excellent example of just how well France does purpose-built resorts. With the slopes on your doorstep, it’s a convenient resort with breath-taking views of the surrounding snow-capped peaks.
Val Thorens makes a fantastic base for exploring the entire Three Valleys, although with a myriad 150km of local pistes, there’s plenty to explore without having to venture further afield.
There’s as much to enjoy off the slopes as on in this energetic village. Get the adrenaline pumping when you try out the longest toboggan run in France – a whopping 6km! Or speed along the La Tyrolienne zip line for a daredevil descent with amazing views. Then recover from all that excitement with a spot of relaxation in our carefully selected accommodation options.
