Once upon a time, there was Alta Lumina!
The latest experience in the series of enchanted Lumina night trails imagined and created by Moment Factory is Alta Lumina.
In the village of Les Gets in the heart of the French Alps, you are invited to follow in the footsteps of a music peddler and his hot air balloon and follow his incredible journey across the mountains.
This exceptional experience plunges visitors into a fantasy world. At the heart of nature at nightfall, you walk a luminous path of one kilometre with successive paintings, where the history linked to the DNA of the territory is poetically suggested by the light, the image under all its forms, scenography and interactivity. Get ready to live an incredible and unique immersive adventure, rich in emotions, where the music is seen, where the light is heard! This activity is to be discovered year-round.
Get some fresh air in Les Gets
Need to breathe, to recharge your batteries, to let off steam or simply to dream? Stop looking around, you’re in the right place!
To get off the beaten track, we suggest ski touring, themed snowshoeing, dog-trekking or Yooner après-ski. Young people will prefer electric snowmobiles on a secure circuit. At the same time, adventurers will pick a good dose of adrenaline during a paragliding baptism above the village and facing the great Mont Blanc range.
At the end of the day, enjoy the warm atmosphere of the village by doing a few slides on the toboggan runs or on the ice rink in the centre…
For you both mountains and nature will satisfy all your desires of escape!
Well-being in all its forms
Well-being takes its place in Les Gets with activities to be experienced in full awareness. With Mont-Blanc on the big screen and many other summits as a panorama guide, the resort has all the ingredients for happiness. Full lung oxygen, pure air with natural essences, here we strengthen our health, we reconnect with ourselves, we forget the rat race for moments truly out of time.
To transpose its sensations to our feet, practitioners in the body or aesthetic care, professionals, therapists have developed protocols that we love. We, therefore, opt for energising or relaxing sessions, indoors or in the countryside: yoga, pilates, stretching, alternative medicine, meditation in a yurt or even fitness for the more athletic.
Well known for its relaxing properties, the spa is an ideal option for pampering both body and soul. Head to Les Sources du Chéry, the Sapana Spa Kinabalu or the Spa Séréni Cimes which promise you intimate and authentic experiences. Beautiful natural and refined spaces welcoming swimming pools, waterfalls and sensory showers, steam baths, saunas, hot tubs … as well as a range of treatments and massages carefully developed according to protocols and with local products.
Arts, land & heritage of Les Gets resort
In the mountains, you get oxygen, but that’s not all. Culture, terroir and traditions are also part of the wealth of Les Gets. Going to meet local producers and taste their delicious cheeses and other mountain specialities are one example. Just like the artisan pottery, the Museum of Mechanical Music, unique in Europe and its Aeolian organ classified as a Historic Monument. So many heritage treasures that awaken and nourish one’s curiosity.
As for Art lovers, they will certainly find what they are looking for by visiting the permanent and temporary exhibitions at the Art’N’Chéry gallery.
Les Gets, a children’s paradise …
Labelled Famille Plus, Les Gets has always paid special attention to the reception of children. In Les Gets, there are infrastructures adapted to each age, a multitude of activities and activities accessible to the whole family and specific services that promise you a successful holiday.
On the snow, your little scoundrels will have plenty of fun thanks to the equipment and fun areas that dot Les Gets: Grand Cry territory and its Indian village, Mauve Milka® slope, Mappys area, video mini-boarder, large boardercross, snowpark, timed parallel slalom, Ranfoilly platform… not to mention an invigorating break on the Nauchets picnic area, just to relax your legs between two runs.
You can also enjoy off-ski activities and there again, there is something for everyone: electric snowmobile, cani-rando (walks with dogs), Yooner, toboggan, skating rink, pottery, Museum, workshops on the village square, visit of tours of farms… and for the little ones, Bankids or merry-go-round with wooden horses.
