Saint-Christophe-en-Oisans is home to a good number of treasures… Its territory covers 1/5th of the Écrins National Park, as well as a part of the ski area, Les 2 Alpes.

Saint-Christophe is the land of mountaineering and one of the most well-known areas of the high mountains in Oisans, along with Bérande. The natural riches and wild nature of this glacial valley are truly one-of-a-kind, making it the ideal place for hiking.

The heart and soul of this land is its wide-open spaces.
It thrives on the fresh air and skies.

Leisure activities

A magical place for all mountain activities!
Hiking: on foot, as a family, sporty hikes, camping under the starry sky, on a marked trail, on a donkey, glacial, on skis, and so on.
Climbing: climbing, via ferrata, mountaineering, ice falls…
White water sports: rafting, kayaking, hydrospeed, hotdog, fishing, etc.
Come and explore Ecrins National Park, discover its natural riches and charm. Why not stay a while longer and stay overnight in a refuge (8 in the surrounding area).
And finally, don’t come to Saint-Christophe without visiting a museum, either in the village or one of the surrounding hamlets. The road that then leads to Bérade will take you through the magnificent landscapes of the mountain peaks.
