Bobsleigh - Olympic Track
Always wanted to be in the Olympics...now is your time to shine (or slide).....
This really is a unique activity for you to have a go at - it is not every day that you get the chance to try your hand at bobsleighing! Only available in La Plagne, the track is from the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympics and is used for bobsleigh, luge and skeleton.
The track still hosts international competitions and you can even have a go yourself, as it welcomes thousands of visitors a year.
Choose from one of the following adrenaline-fuelled options:
- Bobraft - a 4 seater vehicle that reaches speeds of 80kph
- Mono-Bob - a single seater vehicle, piloted by yourself that accelerates up to 90kph
- Taxi-Bob - driven by a professional racer, this is a replica of the 4 man competition bobsleigh and you will experience 3.5G and over 100kph
There are age and heath restrictions due to the extreme nature of the activity – it is worth checking with them if you have any injuries/pregnant/under the age of 14 years. It is certainly not for the fainted hearted and is one of the biggest adrenaline rushes you will ever experience!

Ice Climbing - Climb to new heights
This activity is mainly targeted at mountaineering enthusiasts but it is open for all beginners to go along and have a go. La Plagne has created an impressive artificial ice-climbing structure with various different routes for the different climbers to take depending on their ability level. The structure has been designed in such a way that it is still suitable for beginners to take their first climbing steps.
The impressive climbing ice tower is sprayed with water which then freezes in the cold mountain air – little preparation or maintenance is needed due to the natural conditions in the Alps – little sunshine and low temperatures.
Both expereinced and beginner climbers alike will love this activity. As a beginner you will be shown the ropes (quite literally!) as you are taught about how to use them and learn basic climbing skills.
