The easy outings in Meribel

Top of La Saulire

Top of La Saulire (2700m)

From the top of the Saulire cable car at 2700m above sea level, a sublime panorama awaits you: admire the 3 Valleys, Mont Blanc, the Vanoise glaciers, the Grande Casse... Ideal in the middle of a heatwave or to take a break from the daily grind!

The little extra: the hut at the top of the Saulire cable car for a coffee or snack on deckchairs. Don't forget to bring a water bottle and something to cover up with: even in the hottest weather, a cool breeze can still be felt at 2700m altitude. Accessible by ski lift from Courchevel or Méribel-Mottaret, with a pedestrian pass.

Vanoise National Park

Vanoise national park

Lac de Tuéda, just a few minutes' walk after parking your car, is the gateway to the National Park and its wild and simply sublime Nature Reserve. A little further up, towards the Plagne plateau, you'll find the Refuge du Saut, where you can discover the local flora and fauna, as well as a more mineral landscape, typical of the Alps. Marmots spend their summers here, and if your eyes are sharp enough, take a look towards the Aiguille du Fruit, where you might just spot our chamois friends!

Easy bike in Meribel

No need to be a pro rider

With itineraries designed for different types of cycling (EVP, road or mountain bike), it's a great way to discover the peaks while varying the pleasures of multi-activities.

Two ideas for easy mountain bike routes:

La Loze from Pas du Lac : The lifts also operate in summer, so you might as well use them to go further, higher, with less effort! Go to the Pas du Lac gondola stop to take the marked route back to the famous Col de la Loze climb, which hosted one of the toughest stages of the Tour de France in the summer of 2020. Accessible by lift from Courchevel or Méribel-Mottaret.

Introduction to downhill skiing on the green slopes: You don't have to be a daredevil to try out downhill biking! Discover the green trails of the Courchevel and Méribel bike parks. It's fun and lets you discover new facets of the resort. And if you're a skier, you'll certainly find similar sensations when you take the turns! Accessible by ski lift from Courchevel or Méribel-Mottaret, you'll need a mountain bike pass.

A night in the mountains

Nights in refuges, under the open sky

In authentic cabins, try the minimalist experience! These evenings and nights in refuges are the perfect way to immerse yourself in nature and cut yourself off from the world for a short while. We offer two refuges in the Parc de la Vanoise where you can freeze time:

Lacs Merlets refuge: Located in the Vallée des Avals, just a stone's throw from Lacs Merlets, the 2 huts with their pointed roofs immerse you in the heart of the mountains. Sleeping 14, the refuge guarantees a peaceful night's sleep - but don't forget to book!

Refuge du Saut : Nestling on a plateau surrounded by water, flowers and colorful rocks, the refuge is ideal for a family evening in the heart of the Vanoise National Park. If you're feeling adventurous, a night in the refuge means you can set off higher up for the fantastic Lacs Mont Coua hike - a must-do!
