Tourism & sports activities

In the heart of the Alpes Riviera, Aix-les-Bains is an ideal destination for your wellness weekends, as a couple, or as a family for nature breaks on the banks of the Bourget Lake and near the mountains of Savoie and Haute-Savoie.
So many opportunities to reach Aix-les-Bains and enjoy its exceptional natural environment.
For your winter sports holidays, Aix-les-Bains is also the gateway to the major resorts.

The Lac du Bourget has ecological interest, and it is an important part of France’s natural heritage. Between the Pre-Alpes and the high mountains, it is home to a large number of fish and bird species, and for some of them, it is a major resting place in their migration corridor. Thanks to its huge mass of water on the one hand, and the rocky walls and limestone slabs in its immediate vicinity on the other, the climatic conditions are mild. Because of that, in some places, there is almost a Provençal climate.
The Lac du Bourget and its surroundings are full of sites and activities for everyone.

We will be happy to advise you on the riches of this beautiful region: visits not to be missed, local sporting activities for both the experienced sportsmen and women and for families.
