No doubt about it, a mountain vacation with a nearby lake promotes relaxation and good times with family or friends. And for good reason, a mountain lake in Savoy like that of Tignes is surrounded by green landscapes, peaceful spaces, and offers a thousand water activities. This summer, an unforgettable stay awaits you at the Tignes resort, thanks to its pure waters nestled in the heart of magnificent mountain ranges.
The answer is actually quite simple: by choosing to spend your summer vacation near a mountain lake in Savoie, you are also choosing to make the most of your stay with family or friends. Why congregate on the always crowded Mediterranean beaches when you can enjoy the mountain beaches and the pure water of their lake? The mountain lake indeed offers a very happy combination between the mountain and the beach.
In Tignes, you will enjoy a quieter environment, and a milder summer than by the sea, while taking care of your tan. Freshwater itself has some advantages over seawater, and offers more sensations than this. Not to mention the air of our mountains, perfect for purifying your lungs subjected to too much pollution all year round.
In addition, the lake water is ideal for children who are still hesitant in the water. While you must constantly keep a close eye on them as they wade, you don't mind a wave sweeping them away! They will be able to wade more calmly and will thus be able to gain more self-confidence in the water.
Many accommodation solutions are available in Tignes to accommodate your whole tribe in the greatest comfort. Accommodation located a few steps from the lake and offering a breathtaking view of breathtakingly beautiful nature. Imagine opening your windows in the morning on Lake Tignes, where the surrounding peaks shimmer!
Without counting on the countless activities provided by the 25 hectares of water at Lake Tignes.
If the mountain offers a privileged ground for sliding activities, it is not limited only to skiing and snowboarding, far from it! In summer, the natural lake nestled in the heart of Tignes turns into a real space for relaxation and games for all lovers of aquatic activities. With family, friends, or even alone, it's impossible to get bored thanks to the resort's nautical base.
Starting with the paddle! Fans of this discipline, like beginners, can practice this activity on the calm waters of Lake Tignes.
For those who prefer to work simultaneously on their cardio and their balance, choose the stand up paddle or “sup”. Don't be fooled: this activity is accessible to everyone, whatever your level.
Many other mountain sports await you at Tignes Plage. So grab your paddles and explore our Savoyard mountain lake by canoe or kayak. Ideal for families, enjoy the lake aboard a pedal boat. Even more fun, try your hand at water ball, giggles guaranteed!
In summer, the lake becomes the scene of a magnificent fireworks display fired on its banks and from floating barges. The month of August is thus punctuated by the inevitable Fête du Lac.
Festivities also marked by a fishing competition, a pétanque tournament, an orienteering race, and several live music on and near the lake. So many good memories for young and old alike!
