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.Gaston Rébuffat
It thrives on the fresh air and skies.
A magical place for all mountain activities!
