Altitude experiences...

A unique, fun and educational project right at the heart of Vanoise National Park!

There are specific lift passes for pedestrians! Take the funicular and the cable car. Stop by the terrace of the Panoramic restaurant  to enjoy the view on the famous peaks and mountains around: the Mont Pourri, ridges of the Grande Sassière, the Grande Casse (highest point of La Vanoise: altitude of 3,856 metres) and of course the majestic Mont Blanc (in the distance).


You are in a national nature reserve, at the periphery of the Vanoise National Park (


Warning: you are in a glacier area, so don’t forget to ask a high-mountain guide for their advice to enjoy the glacier to the most! 


Two open-top cabins will offer passengers a unique 360-degree view of one of the most beautiful panoramas of the French Alps with views of Mont Blanc, the Cime de Bellecôte and the Aiguille de la Grande Sassière (3,747 m). 





New: Discover the audio-digital guided tour to learn all about the Grande Motte glacier!


The experience begins at the funicular station in Tignes and ends at foot of the Grande Motte glacier, at an altitude of 3,032 metres. During the ascent, on the funicular and then on the cable car, visitors are invited to take advantage of 8 specific panoramic view points located at varying altitudes. This quality educational support is part of the Altitude Experiences project, launched; by the STGM and the Vanoise National Park. At the heart of all discussions, global warming and the diversification of activities in alpine resorts.


In the long term, it’s an educational experience that you will be able to discover, including some suspended walkways! How glaciers are formed, erosion, fauna, flora, the extreme conditions at the peaks... Learn about all of this and more along the marked trails, where those who care about the mountains will be made aware of the environmental issues at stake here.
