The pleasure of hiking with a lift!

Discover the incredible views over the Tarentaise valley and the Mont Blanc at the top of the Roc Noir without getting tired? With the chairlift running during summer, it's accessible to all, with friends or family, without effort! Come find the freshness and peacefulness of the summits to take a break and recharge your batteries in a magnificent setting. And for the more seasoned hikers, many hiking trails will lead you to the most beautiful landscapes in the mountains. 

The Roc Noir and its 2330m are the starting points of many trails. Just a few minutes away, you can discover the Fort de La Redoute and its breathtaking view on the Mont Blanc and the Little St Bernard Pass​. You can then descend via the Chemin des militaires and enjoy the views on the Combe des Moulins. The more seasoned hikers will follow the crest by taking the sentier de la Crête des Embrasures, and follow with the ascent of the Mont Valaisan at an altitude of 2891m.

How to be equipped for hiking?

The mountain is a place where conditions can be harsh and rapidly changing. To avoid any mishaps and make sure you enjoy your getaway, here are a few tips on the essentials to bring on a hike!

  • Good hiking shoes: wandering around all day gets tiring for your feet! Investing in comfortable hiking shoes is a guarantee to spend a pleasant hike.
  • Water: can't repeat that enough: get hydrated ! Water, water, and even more water!
  • A rain jacket and a hat: the weather can change very quickly in altitude, so make sure to check the weather beforehand, but always be prepared come rain or shine!
  • Snacks: yomping over the summits will get you hungry! And let's be honest, nothing beats a bite of local cheese and sausage to celebrate a great ascent.
  • Sunscreen: the sun can be very harsh up there, even when he plays hide and seek. So make sure you protect your skin with sunscreen.
