Hiking in Les Gets

Walking Holidays in Les Gets French Alps

Choose from a curated series of designated walking trails or carve your own path through idyllic Les Gets scenery. Set off on foot, or get straight to the amazing views on one of the 21 high-speed chair lifts available to walkers.

Option 2: Guided Walking

Hire a guide and get the very best out of the Alpine mountainscape without having to think about it. Choose a themed walk (e.g. flora & fauna) or try donkey trekking and avoid carrying the bags and the kids!
