Mont Revard, a vast plateau that rises to an altitude of 1550 m, is the gateway to the Bauges Regional Park. With its mixture of forests and alpine pastures, the area has kept its soul, its traditions, its colourful flora and its exquisite cheeses (tome des Bauges, gruyère des Bauges, tome de chèvre, etc.).
Le plateau du Revard
Criss-crossed by way-marked paths open to hikers and mountain-bikers, Mont Revard is also France’s oldest winter sports resort. Summer and winter alike, it is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. The climb to Mont Revard can be done by bicycle, by car or on foot, but the most exciting way to descend from this renowned hang-gliding and paragliding centre is by air!
