The Alpaka Lodge

The Alpaka Experience, is a total concept. With the Lodge as your base, you will have the opportunity of trying a variety of activities, and as our guest you will have warm comfortable accommodation, hot baths and showers, outstanding food, fine wines, and the best of company. We combine chalet-style surroundings with a personalised family atmosphere allowing you to do what you want to do while being comfortable.

The Ski Club of Great Britain meet at The Lodge six evenings each week, you are invited to try a day out with their resort representitive and join if you wish. Many local instructors and mountain guides will often pass by for a sociable drink and there is no shortage of local knowledge and mountain expertise available. Thus the Alpaka Experience is not a ski school. It is an opportunity which offers excellent accommodation, food and wine centred on one of the world's best ski areas, with quality skiing most of the year, winter and summer.

Should you want help, there will be an element of ski instruction during your Alpaka Experience as we can offer a wide range of skiing and mountaineering tuition tailored to suit the needs of our guests.

The Alpaka Experience will enable you to have maximum benefit and enjoyment from the area which will make your holiday a real ski holiday.
Tignes is in the centre of France's Vanoise National Park and is completely surrounded by spectacular high alpine mountains. The Alpaka Lodge is in the middle of the main village of Tignes le Lac and is ideally situated for you to take advantage of all that the French Alps have to offer. As a centre for your winter holiday we have an unrivalled opportunity for our guests to enjoy a wide variety of mountain activities from the heart of one of Europe's most famous ski areas the Espace Killy.

Holidays in the high mountains often mean different things to different people within the same party or family group. While one person wants continuous activity pushing the limit of their ability, others may want to relax and cruise the area, taking time en route to enjoy the mountain restaurants and the cuisine and wines for which France is justly famous. To ensure that everyone who visits the Alpaka Lodge can enjoy the overall mountain experience and get the very most from their vacation we have created a different type of ski holiday, the Alpaka Experience.
