The famous resort was founded in 1936 and is located high in the Oisan Alps. The mountain stages of the famous Tour de France often end here. It is therefore popular not only among skiers but also among cycling fans.
Alpe d'Huez is the centre of the Grandes Rousses and offers a total of almost 250 km of pistes with all levels of difficulty on an area of 10,000 hectares. Like most French areas, Alpe d'Huez is an excellent destination for free-riders.
There is a wide range of hiking trails, in the area, which serve as cycle paths at the same time. These are 25 routes with a length of about 200 km. When you get tired of all the above, it's time to enjoy French hospitality in one of the many restaurants or bars or immerse yourself into regeneration or culture.
