Numerous outdoor activities are possible from Chalet Solneige and Chalet Amuse.

On the Lac Verney reservoir you can rent pedal boats and canoes for a pleasant hour of paddling. You can also take a private windsurf lesson between the mountains on the beautiful clear water of the lake. For whitewater kayaking and rafting you have to drive half an hour to the valley of the Veneon or the Romanche (La Grave). There are several options and levels, do not hesitate to ask us for advice. 

In the village of Oz-en-Oisans there is an adventure tree climbing park where children, but adults too, can take easy or more challenging routes via ropes, ladders and zip lines. 

In Oz-en-Oisans there is also an interesting canyoning trail. You can make a nice trip under the guidance of an instructor. 

 

Do you like horse riding? On the Col d’Ornon you can make a wonderful trip through the meadows, forests and rivers. Some experience is required. 

In Vaujany there are beautiful tennis courts, which you can use for free. This is your chance to play a game with a view of the high mountains all around. 

Enthusiastic golfers can enjoy the Golf International de Grenoble. The golf course seems to be challenging and again you can enjoy a beautiful view over the mountains. According to experts, the restaurant is recommended for lunch. 

In our region of the Oisans there are several possibilities for “via ferrata”: mountain climbing via marked routes. 

There are also several good starting points for paragliding in the area. A duo flight with an instructor is a great experience. In summer, a flight from Alpe d’Huez to Bourg d’Oisans is a great experience. In winter, le Signal near Alpe d’Huez is the starting point.
