Welcome to Alpe d'Huez
The main town of Alpe d'Huez sits at 1869 metres above sea level at the centre of the Oisans region in the French Alps. It is the main resort in the Grandes Rousses Massif and is around one hour 30 minutes drive from the nearest airport at Grenoble. At its highest point, the resort reaches up to 3,300m on the Pic Blanc glacier which you have access to in both winter and summer. Its reputation for having the most days of sunshine on the ski slopes in a year has given rise to its nickname "l'Isle du Soleil", the Island of the Sun.
The ski area here has something for every level and ability of skier or snowboarder, including great snowparks. The resort has been awarded the 'Famille Plus' label by the French Tourism organisation as being particularly suitable for family holidays. In the summer months, the resort transforms into a haven for cyclists (it features as a regular stage on the Tour de France), hikers and mountain bikers. It really is a great place to come whatever the season, it's a veritable playground for lovers of all things outdoors and it remains well-priced compared to other ski resorts.
