This trip runs from January 26 to February 3, 2024.
With almost 100 years of skiing history, Val d’Isère is a true classic of the French Alps. Staying here will allow you to discover the mecca that is the stunning Tignes-Val d’Isère ski area - formerly known as 'Espace Killy', named after Jean-Claude Killy, the legendary French champion alpine ski racer who dominated the sport in the late 1960s. Now ski friends just call it 'Val'! We think it combines the best of skiing and European culture making it an ideal mountain playground to Ski 'Escape'.
Val d'Isere lies in the Tarentaise valley of the Rhône-Alpes region, southeast France, 5 km from the border of Italy, and has a very reliable snow cover. In combination with the neighbouring Tignes, Val d’Isère offers 300 km on-piste skiing, 78 ski lifts, 10,000ha off-piste (guides available), and two glaciers. It’s mega! The resorts are linked by lift, piste & lift pass, effectively creatively one massive ski resort.
Sitting at over 6,000 feet the posh yet laid-back base village, built in 1971, has all the resort amenities you could wish for - shopping, entertainment, and delicious cuisine. It is an authentic skiers' village that manages incredible harmony between modern tourism and local chalet-style architecture. You will be staying in comfortable lodging in the village at The Kandahar Hotel with quick and easy ski access each morning after breakfast.
The après-ski scene is famous for being lively, with ample opportunity to dance in your ski boots at popular party venues like La Folie Douce. But there is plenty of variety - relax by the fire with a quiet cocktail or tea if this is more your 'cup of tea'.
Take in the beautiful views, ski your legs off, and relax on this hassle-free trip. It's a NEW destination. Be the first to give it a go!

Kandahar Hotel 3*
First built in 1960, the Kandahar Hotel is located in the heart of the village and a few steps away from the Bellevarde and Solaise mountains, an ideal location to experience the Val d'Isère culture. The Kandahar offers lively and gastronomic evenings in its restaurant the Taverne d’Alsace, as well as relaxing moments at the bar, sauna , or steam room.
In an effort to perpetuate the traditions of Savoy’s architecture, wood and stone were utilized as dominant features, you’ll find lots of attention to details in their decoration and services.
