Don’t let the sunny weather and warm temperatures deceive you: the time to organise your winter getaway is fast approaching. If you’re planning a holiday in La Tania, you’re in for a treat: more snow-covered slopes than you can count are right at your fingertips, and are waiting for you to whizz down them at record-breaking speeds. |
But how about switching up your skiing routine with some new athletic adventures this winter? For those who are looking for a winter sport that will give you a fresh adrenaline rush, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s take a look at what thrilling, snow-related activities you can try during your stay in one of our catered and self-catered chalets. La Tania’s slopes have many delightful surprises in store for you.
Instead of skiing down the pistes, why not take a leap of faith and fly over them? If you’re a bit of a dare-devil, I recommend signing up for paragliding, which will teach you how to soar above the slope. With a flight that covers 1,000 vertical metres, you’re sure to get your fix of adventure for the day. After taking off on your skis, all you have to do is enjoy your picturesque view of the winter wonderland that is the Three Valleys – perhaps you’ll even be able to spot our chalets. La Tania has the best English-speaking paragliding instructors, some of whom can even teach you how to fly by yourself.
How about some sledding... but with an exciting twist? The area is known for offering exciting sledding opportunities – including rental equipment – for all ages. If you’re travelling with children, give sledging a try – it’s a fantastic way to explore the area’s tamer slopes. And, if you’re not yet ready to kick back in our chalets, La Tania offers night sledging for children and adults, which adds an additional element of excitement to this venture.
If you’re feeling more courageous, you could also sign up for husky sledding, a unique opportunity that you definitely won’t want to miss out on. After all, how often do you get the chance to speed down steep slopes with dogs as your guides?
This activity is definitely not for the faint-hearted. For an exhilarating experience that you’ll cherish for the rest of your life (and that makes for a great anecdote), consider going diving. No, I’m not talking about leaping into balmy tropical waters – I’m talking about plunging into the icy water of a nearby lake!
If you’re ready to energise your body and get a glimpse into a magical underwater world that exists a mere stone’s throw from our chalets, La Tania has the perfect diving opportunities for you. For those over the age of 16, diving lessons at the nearby lake Lac du Lou are ideal. During an excursion with an experienced instructor, you’ll discover the spectacular sea life that thrives under a sheet of thick ice. Unexpected adventure? Check.
This winter, you could opt for your usual skiing holiday, or you could embrace your inner adventurer and try paragliding, sledding and ice diving. When you book one of our self-catered or catered chalets, La Tania and its myriad opportunities for electrifying escapades are right at your doorstep.
