Its nickname “Island in the sun” is no exaggeration, as Alpe d’Huez really does enjoy 300 days of sunshine each year! Located high up on the pastureland of the original village, Huez, the resort is sometimes bathed in a sea of cloud… absolutely magical! The peaks of the Grandes Rousses provide a perfect backdrop, enabling visitors to enjoy a wide choice of mountain sports.
