With its many mountain passes and summits, Sainte Foy Tarentaise is crossed by several renowned routes, along both high-altitude sectors and lower mountain slopes:
The Haute Tarentaise Inter-Village trail, which connects the 8 parishes in a 150 km loop, the High-Glacier route (70 km of trails including 3 km on glaciers, crossing Sainte Foy Tarentaise, Tignes, Valgrisenche and Rheme-Notre-Dame in Italy), the Grand Tour de Tarentaise (240 km in 25 stages), and the Via Alpina (5,000 km across 8 countries).
You can always choose to do just a small part of these mythical routes!

high glacial route
A fantastic route which sometimes dances over the border, the High Glacial Route leads you in the footsteps of pedlars and smugglers. A land of trade and tradition, the Haute Tarentaise and the Aosta Valley will share their mountain culture with you.
Sainte Foy offers magnificent varied hikes that stretch between the mountain of altitude, forests and pastures. From 890 m in the Isère valley to 3747 m at the top of the Grande Sassière. This is reflected by three stages of vegetation: mountainous, subalpine and alpine extended beyond 2700 to 3000 m altitude by a nival level.
the lac noir (monséti) tour
Via the Petite Sassière, this hike allows you to discover several key sites in one day, La Savonne, La Sassière, the Black Lake and the hamlets in the Mercuel valley
the little's lake
A gem of a thousand colours overlooked by the Oeillasses rocks.
the monal hike
Classed as one of the 'best Tarentaise walks and hikes.' Easy climb up a slope and/or path, then through forest. Very pretty path. Magnificent and so varied. Beautiful view of Mont Pourri.
the village of le monal
A perfect example of a Haute-Tarentaise village, Le Monal has long been a listed site. However, even this delightful collection of stone houses interspersed with larch trees on the edge of a small lake, cannot eclipse the breathtaking view of Mont Pourri.
waterfall of la raie
Undulating forest footpath, arriving near to a 150 metres high waterfall.
