Isere Ski Resorts

L’Isère, formerly known as the Dauphiné, is a land of contrasts.

When we speak of Isère, we are bound to think of the massif du Vercors, a paradise for potholers with its many caves and chasms. The Vercors, a mountain of moderate altitude, and the Chartreuse region are ideal leisure areas for young and old: Nordic skiing in Autrans, and downhill skiing in Villard de Lans. In summer, marked trails and forest tracks offer numerous opportunities for walking.

With both Alpine foothills and steep slopes, Isère is characterised by terraced landscapes. The Belledone range, with its mountainous slopes, requires a more technical approach, and is perfect for downhill skiing and rock climbing. Finally, in the heart of the Grenoble region, the Oisan with Chamrousse, les Deux Alpes and l’Alpe d’Huez are all major resorts in their own right.
