Hiking

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:

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.
