Châtel is an essential destination for challenging downhill mountain-biking coupled with an authentic Alpine experience.
The Sentier des Bords de Dranse is a family-friendly cycle trail along the banks of the River Dranse between Châtel and Abondance. Stop off in La Chapelle d’Abondance around midway for refreshments in the centre of the village. There’s a choice of restaurants in all three villages and a summer shuttle bus service to take you and your bikes back to your start point.
Châtel was always stylish, and now it’s also very well-connected, thanks to major lift upgrades. We ski the Portes du Soleil from Châtel.
