The hotel at the foot of the Col du Galibier

is where countless adventures begin!


During your trip to Valloire, go and see one of the most beautiful and legendary of all Alpine passes. Rising to an altitude of 2642m, the Col du Galibier is the fifth highest mountain peak road in the French Alps. To reach it, take the Route des Grandes Alpes that runs by the hotel by car, or by motorbike or bicycle if you’re more daring. Closed for traffic during winter, it is one of the most frequented sites by racers in the Tour de France, figuring nearly 60 times in its different events. Ascending it from Valloire is particularly difficult with an average incline of 7%, with some parts at 10% or more. In 2011, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first passing of the Tour over the Col du Galibier, the passage was climbed twice via two different slopes, during the 18th and 19th stage. At the peak, the vistas are incredible, with a good view towards the Barre des Écrins, Mont Blanc and the Grand Galibier.

As you cross the passage, you will pass from the department of Savoie to that of Hautes-Alpes, but you will also enter the great Écrins national park. So near, go and discover the countryside, fauna and flora of this outstanding place of natural beauty. You’ll particularly enjoy the Meije and Arsine glaciers and the Combeynot and Douche lakes. As you walk through the park, you’re sure to spot native mountain goats like the chamois and ibex, or maybe even a few marmots. If you wish to spend more time among nature in protected environments, you can also visit the other nearby national park - Vanoise - during your stay in Valloire. A true hikers’ paradise, the park offers a network of 400km of marked paths which cross different villages and resorts and allow you to admire the hundreds of peaks that pass 3000m in altitude. The park also offers numerous interpretive trails which allow you to discover the fauna, flora and ancestral traditions of this beautiful mountainous region.
