To discover


For non-skiers, Flaine offers a world of off-ski activities to ensure your stay remains anything but monotonous while the rest of the family descends the 265 km of slopes in the Grand Massif. On the snow, get a taste of a magical dog sledding adventure, unleash your excitement with a Mountain Kart, or explore the trails with a Moonbike. But what truly sets Flaine apart is its status as an « open-ar museum ». Immerse yourself in local history with a guided tour or explore the artistic heritage by visiting the art centre. In Flaine, there is always something extraordinary to discover, even away from the slopes.
