Tourism in les Vosges
Gerardmer, we come here for skiing, we stay there and we return for the beauty of the lake that reflects the surrounding mountains, the cosy atmosphere of the village, its traditions and the range of activities proposed. Summer or winter, this is the ideal place to relax in the nature. It is the resort "par excellence" skiing, mountains and nature lovers in the heart of one of the most beautiful French regions.
Snow enthusiasts will be able to enjoy skiing on approximately 40 kilometres of alpine ski slopes at La Mauselaine resort. If you prefer Nordic skiing, the resort of Bas Rupts connects those of La Bresse and Xonrupt-Longemer offering more than one hundred kilometers of tracks! Not to mention, for the most adventurous ones, a ski jump of 65 meters. If the snow conditions are not there, snow cannons ensure a decent level of snow.
If Gerardmer is a winter paradise, it is also great place during the summer, thank to its lake and the various activities it offers to its visitors: sailing, rowing, diving, canoeing... In addition to the lake, you can also discover the regions through the various footpaths that appear when the snow melts, walking or mountain biking... The Regional Natural Park of the Ballon des Vosges is a must see. This is the occasion for nature lovers to discover a diverse fauna and flora.
Last but not least, the region is also famous today, thank to the International Fantastic Film Festival that has made Gerardmer the place to be in January.
