Val d’Isère is a ski resort in the southeast of France, nestled among the Alps in the Savoie region. Together with Tignes, it forms the Espace Killy ski region, with 300km (186mi) of pistes and some remarkable off-piste skiing. We take a look at the best things to see and do during your visit.
The Haute-Savoie is well known for its hearty cuisine that will warm you and fill you up after a long day of skiing. Whether you opt for tartiflette, cheese or beef fondue, or raclette, you absolutely must treat yourself to a tarte aux myrtilles for dessert. What’s more, it’s rude to decline Genepi after your meal; this digestif has great herbal qualities and is also said to soothe sore throats. The Ski Gallery & Fondue Factory is renowned for being one of the best places for the local cuisine in the area.
