Another glacier that’s open in the summer, the park is typically French in that it will sometimes try its absolute best to maim or kill you, but on a good day it’s great. And if you see more than one person riding home with a shin bone sticking out their pants you can always go and have some fun on some of the funnest side-hits going.
Unfortunately, the website is classically French as well, meaning it’s nigh on impossible to find any good information about dates without being blasted by cheesy euro-pop, but as it normally stays open until early May we’ll assume it’ll be the same this year.
Fun Fact: The Barrage de Tignes, a huge dam, contains the submerged remains of the original mountain village. Once every ten years it’s drained for maintenance and you can glimpse the old buildings!
