Champoussin

Champoussin (alt 1,580m) is known for its sunshine, picturesque traditional architecture and spectacular views over the Dents du Midi mountain range.


Despite the tranquil atmosphere of Champoussin's quiet streets, activities here abound: there is a paragliding school, a toboggan run, marked trails for snowshoeing, horseback riding and hiking, an adventure course in the trees, a working farm with friendly goats, cheese-making demonstrations and a quaint alpine museum, to name but a few.

In winter, the annual sledging race is a not-to-be-missed event where modern sledges go head-to-head with the old hay sledges of yesteryear.

Summer highlights include the Fête du Bois and an entertaining children's games festival.
