For 2024 we are running both our ski/snowboard yoga holidays and hiking/multi-adventure yoga holidays in La Rosiere in the French Alps.
We have been staying around this area for the last 15 years and love the summers in the ski resort as much as the winters.
This ski/ summer mountain area is a part of the Tarentaise Valley which comprises other ski areas such as Val D’Isere and Tignes, Les Arcs and St Foy. La Rosiere is situated on the south-facing side of the mountain range so the front face of the ski mountain has sun all day with beautiful sunsets.
Low carbon travel: If you would prefer to travel by train rather than fly then there are trains via Paris from London St Pancras to Bourg-Saint-Maurice and then only a short 20-minute transfer to your accommodation.
You can get 15% off your ski pass if you travel by train – find out more here.
La Rosiere itself is a part of the San Bernadino ski area, which is connected with La Thuile in Italy which means that you can enjoy the playful traverse to La Thuile which is usually the road in the summer for the mountain pass. It also means you can enjoy croissants for breakfast and pasta or pizza for lunch. Or a bombadino if you are feeling adventurous!
The ski area is great for beginners, intermediate and advanced, there is something for everyone. Beginners can stay at the front side of La Rosiere and the more intermediate can ski all the way to Italy and back.
We are based in ski-in-ski-out wellness apartments right in the centre of La Rosiere surrounded by shops, restaurants, ski school, and ski hire and fabulous views on the south-facing mountain side so sun all day.
If you are a beginner and have had enough after your ski lesson you can get back to your accommodation easily and choose to relax there or try out the wellness facilities such as a gym, swimming pool, and spa area and relax with a massage. Or have lunch in a restaurant whilst enjoying amazing views.
We have chosen this area because we love the Tarantaise Valley and all that it offers. You will be staying in the same wellness apartments that we use for our ski yoga holidays. They are centrally located in the small ski village of La Rosiere, right at the foot of the ski lifts and slopes so you can easily access the mountains. This means that the elevation is already 1850m, with panoramic views of the whole valley and a stunning sunset every evening.
In the French Alps, you are surrounded by nature. You will spend your time hiking to high peaks and enjoying picnics in the sun with stunning views. You also have the chance to visit Bourg-Saint-Maurice and experience white water-rafting. This destination is the perfect place to balance relaxation and adventure.
Where do I fly to?
Fly to Geneva. We have recommended flight times so that you can meet the transfer bus that is included in the price of the holiday. It takes around 3 hours from Geneva to the venue in La Rosiere or just less than 2 hours to your summer venue.
I prefer train travel, how do I do this?
For a low-carbon adventure, you can take the train to Bourg-Saint-Maurice via London St Pancras train station. There is the snow train which leaves on Friday night and is a night train getting you into Bourg-Saint-Maurice by the following morning. This means you get an extra day skiing in to!
Or you can travel via Paris and change there from Gare du Nord to Gare to sud on the Paris Metro and choose to travel through the day to arrive in the evening if you prefer day slow travel.
All info will be on our 'how to get there' section at the bottom of the ski yoga holiday page on our website.
