There are few things more satisfying than going for a hike in the beautiful landscape of Méribel, and thankfully quality hiking routes are in abundance. We’ve listed a couple of the routes we feel offer both a perfect introduction to hiking in Méribel and sufficient challenges to satisfy even the most ambitious hiker. Pick up a guide or map from an information centre to help you identify the correct routes.
This route starts in Méribel Mottaret at the top of the Pas du Lac 2 bubble lift. You can find it listed on the maps as Route 27 and it’s a high altitude hike marked as difficult. Make sure you prepare accordingly with all the essentials needed for this challenging route.
From the top of the Pas du Lac 2 bubble lift, follow the trail and revel in the breath-taking scenery of the surrounding valley and flanking mountains. Stick to this trail and head towards Col de Fruit where you can descend towards the picturesque lake in Lac du Tueda. Featuring the Vanoise Nature Reserve, Lac du Tueda boasts a multitude of natural delights and unspoilt wildlife, plus if you head down to the lake you’ll find a small restaurant ideal for a recharge after the hike. From here you can either walk or catch a bus back to Méribel Mottaret.
If you want to push yourself a bit further, take the Pas du Lac 2 bubble lift down and hike uphill.
The second hike starts near the ending of the first, in Lac du Tueda and is marked as very difficult. Use your map to find Route 26 and once at Lac du Tueda, walk to the far end of the lake along the flat trail. Upon reaching the far side you’ll see a trail that leads up to the mountain towards Les Mûres des Rouges and Plan des Mains. Once there you need to follow the trail along to Côte Brune, where you’ll find a fork in the road. Take the left turn until you find another fork where again you need to turn left. Then the trail heads upwards and starts to twist around the mountains, heading up to Lacs du Borgne. The route earns its high difficulty rating here, as you climb up to Mont Vallon to earn a stunning view of valley below.
To get back down you can either turn around and take the same path, or for an easier walk take the road marked route 28 on your map.
