Situated on the western slopes of the Val d’Héremence, Thyon is a modern winter sports destination: The village is particularly geared up to meet the needs of skiers. Its many vacation rentals in apartment buildings and chalets are located directly next to the pistes, or near the cable ways and children’s ski school. Snowshoeing and dog sled rides are attractive winter alternatives to skiing. Summer guests bask in the broad panoramas and fresh mountain air. And the area offers a plethora of activities from hiking to climbing, from biking to horseback riding, from paragliding to bowling.
