One of the Most Beautiful Ski Resorts in Europe
French Alps are beautiful. But there is one place there that is truly magical when it comes to skiing, and that place is known as Val Thorens. Did you know that Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe? Well, now you know! You can say that driving to Val Thorens is a real adventure, because it involves a really long climb up the side of the mountain.
In order to get to the top of the mountain, you will spend about one hour climbing up. And now, here are some interesting things that you can do while you are there.
Snowshoeing is a good combination of exploring nature and sport. And what is so good about this activity is the fact that you don’t need to have any previous experience or technical skill to enjoy it.
Snowshoeing also gives access to some amazing scenery that a regular skier can’t experience. In order to enjoy this activity, all that you need is a ski outfit and a pair of hiking boots.
The terrain is majestic and the experience will last forever. We highly recommend doing this one day while in Val Thorens.
Sleep in an Igloo
Have you ever thought about spending a night in an igloo? Naturally, it seems like an unusual place to stay. But there is no reason to worry though, because this igloo is not a real icy igloo, but a cosy one. It is actually a great place to spend a romantic night with your partner.
This igloo is heated by a wood stove and it has its own bathroom. And on top of all of that, there is a nice view of the slopes from the bed. It is very popular, so booking in advance would be the best solution.
Yoga in the Mountains
Doing yoga exercises while facing the glacier is a great way to relax and recharge your batteries. You can benefit from doing yoga in many ways, which include toning muscles and improving posture. Doing yoga exercises can also help you relive tension either physically or mentally, as well as gain energy resources. All of this can help put you in a good place, which means that you will be ready for skiing.
Practicing yoga in Val Thorens after a skiing session is always a good idea, and the reason why is because it can help you recover after the effort, and not only that, but maintain good spiritual and physical health as well. If you want a full experience, you can go for a guided snowshoe hike that includes some stretching sessions.
