Take the funicular and cable car (3,456m) and then stop off on the Panoramic terrace to enjoy the view of the surrounding peaks and mythical massifs: Mont Pourri, the Grande Sassière ridges, Grande Casse (highest point of the Vanoise: 3,856m) and the majestic Mont Blanc range on the horizon.
You are in a national nature reserve, on the outskirts of the Vanoise National Park. Thanks to the reserve, it has been possible to protect the fauna and flora, and in particular, to ban hunting on the main migration corridor of the ibex (more info: www.parcnational-vanoise.fr).
Be careful, you are in a glacial zone. Do not stray from the secured areas.
The two cabins of the cable car with roof terrace offer a unique 360 degree view of one of the most beautiful panoramas in the French Alps with views of Mont Blanc, the Cime de Bellecôte and the Grande Sassière needle.
Discover the audio-digital guided tour to learn all about the Grande Motte glacier!
Audioguides are now available to discover a route that starts at the departure station of the Tignes funicular to reach the foot of the Grande Motte glacier, at 3032 m. During the ascent via the funicular and then the cable car, the audioguide will take you to 8 viewpoints located at various altitudes, allowing you to capture an exceptional panorama. This is a high quality teaching aid that offers a real level of information and is in line with the Altitude Experiences project...
