The Plateau de Retord, Nordic spirit par excellence. This plateau, with its ideal Nordic terrain and gentle slopes, is an immense natural area where the rare isolated dwellings are the only landmarks between the wooded valleys and ridges.
Whether you enjoy cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, Nordic ski touring or just love wide open spaces and beautiful landscapes, the Plateau de Retord has something for everyone.
