Dinner in a Yurt
Something a little different for the evening.. why not dine in the traditional surroundings of a Mongolian Yurt. When you're fed and watered return back to Les Arcs 1800 in a trail of torches to light your way. You set off on snow shoes with a guide from Arc 1800 for around 30 minutes to get to the Yurt. A Savoyarde style dinner is served. Reservations are obligatory by at least noon the day before. Price includes hire of the snow shoes. Contact Arc Aventures to book.
There are 20km of winter walking trail in Les Arcs which you can either enjoy by yourselves or on a guided walk with one of the activity companies. Take a look at the snowshoe map for their locations. A pair of walking poles will come in handy for extra balance on icy patches and for checking snow depth before you go striding forth! Top tip: buy ‘grippers’ for your walking boots to prevent slipping, all of this can be bought from most local Sport Shops. Don’t forget to check the weather forecast before you set out as conditions can change rapidly in the mountains.
Fat bikes have super-wide wheels, allowing the rider to make progress on even powdery snow. In Peisey-Vallandry you can go on a guided tour during the day or night or simply hire a bike (from around €35 for half a day). If you fancy the ride but not the effort, there are now electric fat bikes with in-built motors which make the experience a whole lot easier.
On bad weather days, head indoors for a game of laser quest in Arc 1800. There are two rooms and they can take up to 50 people at once, so it's also good for groups. Open in summer and winter.
