Huez

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Isère

In 1936 Alpe d'Huez takes off. Jean Pomagalski installed the 1st lift beam and the world mark with his invention the beginning of a great adventure, one that will see a small mountain village metamorphose into an international resort.

Alpe d'Huez has developed since that date to 1860 meters of altitude on the Massif des Grandes Rousses. It is located in the department of Isere (38) and more precisely Oisans.

Le Pic Blanc, highest peak at 3,330 meters, offers a panorama of the Ecrins National Park and its famous peaks: the rake, the Meije Muzelle, the Aiguilles d'Arves, the Belledonne and Mont Blanc. A landscape covering almost 1/5th of the French territory of Italy to the Massif Central.
