Tignes - The Big Blue!

The Tignes-Val d´Isère area is full of natural wonders. Among them, the natural lake of Tignes 2100 which dons its mantle of ice for winter. 

Between 1 and 2 metres thick, the ice forms and reshapes itself every day, creating a magical play of light and shadow. Supervised by a qualified diving instructor, set off on a unique adventure, day or night, in complete confidence in the town where the famous film The Big Blue was shot (scene under the ice in Peru)!

Day light scuba diving under the ice is accessible to all !

The night time diving is recommended to those who have a previous experience.
