Discovering the beauty of the high Alpine meadows is possible via the network of mountain paths, notably the GR58 and the GR5. Visit the high villages, the lakes and the mountain passes (cols) like the Col Izoard, made famous by the Tour de France. All these places offer you access to a unique and preserved environment. For the outdoor sports enthusiasts, there are many more sporting possibilities within proximity of the village: white water, cycling, via ferrata or summer biathlon. Arvieux has held on to its character, its traditional activities and crafts. The famous jouets du Queyras (traditional toys) are still crafted here, there is a pottery workshop and an open farm. Lovers of cultural and traditional heritage and lovers of the mountains will find Arvieux a rich and educational experience.
