Where snow covers the landscape in the winter, hundreds of hiking routes wind their way through our mountains and valleys in the summer. Here, anyone who is seeking peace and lovely mountain nature has come to the right place. With the sound of cowbells in the background and the scent of fresh alpine flowers in the air, you will become familiar with the most beautiful hiking trails in the Alps.

But if you would also like to experience a bit more adrenalin, this is the place for you. That’s because Les Portes du Soleil is not only an exceptional mountain hiking area. The area also lends itself well to mountain biking, paragliding, rafting, mountain climbing, trail running and via ferratas. Or how about the Fantasticable, in which you race at 100 km per hour from one mountain peak to another?


Hotel Esprit Montagne offers you the option to use the Portes du Soleil Multipass for just €2 per day! With this pass, you can make use of all of the summer lifts and you have access to numerous attractions, such as 21 mountain lifts for hikers, 5 swimming pools and 2 mountain lakes, 9 tennis centers, 2 ice rinks, 5 cultural attractions (museums, churches and abbeys), 3 tourist trains and shuttle busses between the various villages.

The Multipass is available from mid-June to late August (see also Multipass). Upon arrival in the hotel, we can prepare the Multipass for you.
