Admiring the Mont Blanc

Europe's highest peak

Le Collet is one of those privileged places where you can admire the Mont-Blanc from its tops. With its position as a balcony resort and its 360° panoramic view of the Grésivaudan valley, you will easily see in the distance the majestic silhouette of the most emblematic of the Alps’ peaks on the Savoy region side.

Contemplating Mont-Blanc from the summits 

Hiking enthusiasts know it is possible to contemplate the Mont-Blanc from the various Collets mountain passes. It is even a must during a stay at Le Collet.

At the Col de l’Occiput and Col de Claran, the most easily accessible ones, the Mont-Blanc rises in its white dress and leaves you meditative. It must be said that with its 4807 metres, it is quite impressive. The view will leave you speechless, as it is still an exceptional sight. If the weather conditions are favourable, you can’t miss it. In summer, its white mass is unmistakable and in winter, you will easily recognise its rounded dome. And anyway, you can’t miss it, it is the highest peak in the area.

Activities conducive to contemplation 

At Le Collet, many activities allow you to contemplate the Mont-Blanc. All you have to do is climb a little and you’ll see it coming off in the distance.

Hiking, snowshoe hiking, mountain biking, ski touring or simply taking the chairlift, you can’t fail to contemplate the Mont-Blanc. Put down your poles, take a break and admire the landscape. After all, it may not be given to everyone to be able to contemplate the Mont-Blanc.

On the slopes, from the summit of Les Plagnes at 2100 metres, it is almost impossible not to see it. Or maybe it’s because the weather is bad.
