Trips on foot

Albertville is at the crossroads of two valleys in an exceptional natural location. A huge choice of marked trails and routes exists, on the plain or in the mountains, from easy strolls to more challenging trails for confirmed mountaineers.

Around Albertville, the forest tracks established and maintained by the national Forestry Department, lead you to the heart of the woods…through the villages…towards the crests dominating the valley…

New: The vineyard trail In the heart of the medieval town, this circuit allows you to discover, as a family, the agricultural and viticultural traditions still practiced on the slopes overlooking the town.

A themed trail, "the HistoRisk trail" which explains how the inhabitants of Tours en Savoie have adapted to the mountain environment and its risks.

There are marked trails which leave from Ste Hélène, the hamlet of Villaret or from La Pallaz. To get to the alpine chalet, allow 3 hours of walking in the forest. The la Thuile âlpine meadow: the starting point for walks to the summit of the Grand Arc (difficult), la Dent du Corbeau (medium), the Fontaine Claire lakes (easy), depending on your fitness!
