Mont Blanc, the emperor of the mountains. Surrounded by his kings and queens. The river Rhone and the Alps give the region its name. Above everything towers the Mont Blanc, with 4.810 m the highest mountain of the Alps.
Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes is the most favourite winter destination in the country. World famous skiing resorts can be found mainly in the Départements Savoie and Haute-Savoie. Hundreds of pistes and slopes wait for you, for example, at Les 3 Vallées and its well known towns of Méribel or Val Thorens, in Portes du Soleil, including Morzine or Avoriaz or in Les Sybelles with its six belles, in other words – six beautiful skiing areas. And these are only a few of the Ski-Giants!
The capital of the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region is Lyon. On a clear day in summer, one can see the Mont Blanc Massif from some terraces of the town.
