In winter, ski in family on the ski resort of Essert. Enjoy an area where the joys of snow rhyme with beauty panoramas and conviviality at the altitude restaurant. Abondance is connected by regular shuttle to the fantastic area of the Portes du Soleil.
For those who prefer walks, Abondance offers several marked snowshoe circuits and outings with guides. For Nordic activities, go to the "Lac des Plagnes" area for cross-country skiing, sled dogs and ski joëring.

In summer, nature is your playground! Hiking, mountain biking, electric MTB, adventure park...
Abundance is also a holiday full of discoveries with an exceptional abbey site (church, cloister and museum of religious art), and an interpretation center about Abondance cheese : the "Maison du Fromage Abondance".

After a day filled with emotions, you will discover the local cuisine and particularly the "berthoud", a specialty of the valley made from AOC Abundance cheese.
