About Tignes

Tignes is in the Espace Killy ski area linked with the neighbouring Val d’Isère. Tignes is made up of 5 villages – Val Claret, Tignes Les Boisses, Le Lavachet, Tignes le Lac, Tignes-les-Brévières. The famous dam of Tignes was built in the 1950s and the ultimate sacrifice for the greater good was that the old village of Tignes had to be flooded. Once every ten years they drain the lake for maintaining the dam and the old buildings become visible. After the old village was flooded a new resort was built higher up in an ideal location for it to become a ski resort. Thanks to the Grande Motte glacier Tignes offers year-round skiing. Tignes might not be the prettiest resort with its high-rise buildings but the skiing is truly excellent and so is the nightlife. Tignes is also getting more popular in the summer. It offers a wide selection of activities, such as glacier skiing, cycling, golf, paragliding, sailing, canyoning, fishing and many more. Getting to Tignes Tignes is situated at the end of the Tarentaise valley, not far from Val d'Isere. It takes quite a long time to get to Tignes as it is one of the furthest resorts from the major airports. It is definitely worth the hassle though! To get to Tignes you can fly to any of Geneva, Chambéry, Lyon or Grenoble. The best option transfer wise is to fly to Geneva airport. Transfers from Geneva airport to Tignes can take just under 3 hours on a good day and it is a busy route so you should have no problem finding a good deal. If you fly to Chambéry then the transfer to Tignes is a bit quicker than from Geneva and it will cost a little bit less. Transfers from Lyon airport to Tignes cost about the same as transfers from Grenoble airport to Tignes and both take a little over 3 hours. The reason that transfers to Tignes from Grenoble and Lyon are more expensive than transfers from other airports is that they are further away in terms of distance and more time is spent on expensive motorways.
