Imagine a 19th-century botanist and priest from Les Gets in search of a sacred plant, who embarked on three missions to China and a few more hazardous voyages, and step into a unique botanical garden combining history and botanical treasures. The Delavay Garden is located in the beautiful setting of the Lac des Écoles, and features plants and shrubs discovered 150 years ago by Father Jean-Marie Delavay in the mountains of Yunnan. It was created in 2017, and contributes to the preservation of a fascinating living heritage!
18 holes - 18 panoramic views, all in Les Gets’ newly refurbished golf course. This rather technical course is quite unique thanks to its diversity. Opened in 1995, the course has been constantly improved over the years, and is an 18-hole, 5,264-metre, par-70 course. Located in a wooded setting in the heart of Portes du Soleil, the Les Gets golf course has named each hole after one of the surrounding summits, with Mont Blanc, in line with the 7th hole, overlooking the entire course. The panoramic views are a real invitation to discover this exceptional site. The golf course maintains 30 golf carts, and lessons are available too.
Located just a few steps from the Lac des Ecoles, the Ranch du Lac is the ideal start point for the many Les Gets horse riding excursions these mountains have to offer. Their guides will accompany you for outings of all levels, from two or three hours to a full day.

Tandem skydiving is where the instructor is strapped to your back, so you are just along for the ride. After your briefing, you would be taken up to 4000m before your jump begins.
