Graced with restful blue lakes, shimmering waterfalls, flowery valleys and snow-powdered summits that tower 3,000 metres into the clouds, it’s an awe-inspiring place to explore. As well as hikers and rock climbers the park attracts wildlife enthusiasts, who come to observe the 70 species of animal that call the landscape home. Skiers and snowboarders will have two distinct areas to choose from come ski season. Quickly accessible from town via the Lys Gondola, the Cirque du Lys area boasts 25 pistes, and is most suited to novice and intermediate recreational skiers.
