With a ski area currently reaching 2725m, Orcieres is one of the rare Southern Alps resorts with high altitude skiing and an excellent variety of slopes.

Those who want to brave the adventurous „flight“ over the ravine between the Drouvet summit (2655m) and Lac Long, can reach the start of the XXL zip wire with the hybrid lifts Drouvet 1 and 2. There participants are attached to the 1870m long steel wire with a special harness and are thoroughly secured in several ways. Participants are then fired like a human rocket head first in a horizontal position at an average speed of 130kph to the end station. The entire glissade with a maximum height of 150 meters lasts about 1.5 minutes.

The 10,000m²  leisure and spa centre „La Grande Ourse“ is in the city centre, which has a large 1600m² ice rink, a bowling centre with 6 lanes and billiard tables, a cinema plus modern bathing and wellness oasis. Several themed pools are located here, plus a waterslide, bathhouse, sauna, jacuzzi and a spa for massages and beauty treatments.

An extensive entertainment programme is offered in about 12 real igloos during the day, where we can learn lots of interesting facts about the eskimos’ lives. In the evening the igloo village turns into a hotel, so to speak, and offers the possibilty of spending the night surrounded by mountains and the chance to admire the unparalleled starry sky.
