Réallon in summer: endless mountain activities

Breathe in, breathe out and enjoy… That could almost be the Réallon motto. The ski lifts continue to operate in summer, whisking you away above larch forests and meadows. The scenery rolls out under your feet, changing shape and colour as you ascend effortlessly to the summit to admire the breathtaking vistas. The domain features many trails you can explore on foot, on a mountain bike or even a scooter, unveiling gorgeous views spanning Serre-Ponçon lake. The “Ecole de VTT de Réallon” mountain biking school is ideal for fans looking to perfect their technique and you’ll soon be ready to sweep down the domain’s 9 trails, descending 600 metres from the summits. Beginners’ trails are also on the programme if you fancy a ride just for fun, together with enduro trails alternating technical single tracks and natural obstacles.

Treasures to discover in every season

The ruins of the 12th-century Réallon Fort and castle offer historic points of interest combined with very agreeable, easy walks ideal for families. Shaped like a square tower, the 16th-century Eglise Sainte Pelade with its remarkable octagonal belltower stands over the village. Réallon is still home to a number of passionate breeders and farmers, who will be delighted to introduce you to their time-honoured know-how and produce: cheeses, meats, honeys, jams and even a tasty beer. Around 30 minutes from Réallon, the “Muséoscope du Lac de Serre-Ponçon”,  invites you to learn more about this unique site. The building of the dam led to much permanent destruction and the disappearance of several villages, drowned beneath the waters. The Muséoscope retraces the building of the dam and fate of the villages that were swallowed up. Also, the Hautes-Alpes is a priceless hub of culture and heritage, also offering museums for every taste.
