Vallandry is a pretty village situated at 1600m, at the centre of the Paradiski area with the Vanoise Express cable car linking up Les Arcs and La Plagne into one vast playground. It is also on the edge of the beautiful Vanoise National Park, a huge protected wildlife area great for walking at any time of year. 

The winter season is full-on activity; the whole village buzzes with life; the bars, restaurants and shops are open until late. Skiing and Boarding on and off-piste, and cross-country, are the obvious activities. There are some beautiful walks, dog-sledging and ice-climbing. Vallandry is one of the major paragliding areas and many visitors chose to take their first tandem flight over the snow.



In the Vallandry area, there are wide slopes that extend between the trees and great possibilities of mixing on and off-piste skiing by cutting through the woods. Take a look at this drone video.

It links seamlessly into the Les Arcs area, where there is a big ski-park. You also take the Bubble here up to 2400m. From there it is possible to take further lifts up to the top of the Aiguille Rouge. Another day take the Vanoise Express over the valley to explore La Plagne



The large number of red runs make it an excellent place to learn to board.

For the fearless there is the possibility of going from the top of the Aiguille Rouge right down into Villaroger - 7 km non-stop with an amazing vertical drop.
