Hiking in La Clusaz


La Clusaz is a hiker's paradise!

La Clusaz and the whole of the Aravis massif boasts an impressive range of hiking trails, from short family-friendly strolls to more advanced treks over several days and full day hikes.  The mountain refuges in the Aravis will welcome you for a warming evening meal and a nights’ stay. As you pass through the summer meadows in flower, wonder at the splendid views over the snowy peaks of the Mont Blanc and the alpine lakes!  Keep your eyes open to spot some of the local fauna; chamois, ibex or marmots or even the biggest bird of prey in Europe, the bearded vulture. Be inspired for an adventure at the Tête du Danay, Plateau de Beauregard, Lac de Tardevant or Col des Annes.

In order to easily breathe good mountain air and hike in the middle of the pastures, you can take Beauregard gondola from the village. Once at the top, trails are yours. And don't forget to make a break at one of the farms to refuel.
