Perched on a rocky outcrop, this fortified town from the late 19th century is a unique site, which offers a magnificent view of the Albertville valley. On site, you will enjoy 16 hectares of landscaped grounds to explore, a snack bar, botanical trails and marked hiking trails, 3 lookouts and an orientation table, rooms and underground galleries with free access. In the heart of the fort, the Acrofort adventure park offers 10 courses of different levels for families to enjoy themselves in a privileged setting. It includes a 300-metre-long zip line perched at a height of 70 metres. The Fort de Tamié site also has a children's playground with trampolines, water basins and inflatable games, an early learning area for young children, and a lounge area for parents who can supervise their children in the most comfortable way. Between history, landscapes, relaxation and outdoor activities, Fort Tamié is an ideal destination for families. Don't forget to stop at the Tamié cheese dairy to taste and buy the production of the Cistercian abbey.
