Summer in L'Alpe-d'huez

Here you get the sunshine city of the Alps.
It is said that there are 300 days of sunshine a year in Alpe H'huez, so if you take the trip towards the Alps and our city of sunshine, you are almost guaranteed good weather all year round.
The city is known as Europe's best ski resort in winter.
In the summer, you probably know it most from the Tour de France, where cyclists have to fight their way up the 21 known turns.
However, we can offer you much more than that when you hop in the car, plane or bus to visit our lovely city. Alpe d'Huez has a sea of possibilities that you will not want to miss on your active or relaxing summer holiday. There is something for the whole family, no matter what activity you are into. We will almost also promise you that if your family's favorite activity is not to be found, then you will find yourself here in the city of sunshine, a whole new favorite activity. We want to help you find an activity that suits your family.

We look forward to welcoming you to Alpe d'Huez, with lots of activities and accommodation at our Danish-run family hotel.
