Are you a lover of nature and culture? If the answer is yes, Resort Eifeler Tor is the right place to be. The holiday park is situated in the centre of the National Park Eifel, close to the beautiful Rursee and near historical cities such as Cologne, Aachen and Trier. Located on a hill, the resort offers a breathtaking view of the river the Rur. Visitors are treated by a combination of luxury, diversity and hospitality.
Also for families and adults, we offer a wide range of facilities at both the resort and in the Eifel region. For example, you are able to participate in a tour around the power plant. You will gain insight in the hundred-year-old Jugendstil-power plant in Heimbach, an architectural pearl which is unique in Germany.
In the summer, the plant is transformed for a week into an amazing concert hall in which internationally known artists from around the world are performing. In addition, excursions are being organised during which the most beautiful forests are explored. You can also travel by boat in an expedition along the Rursee. The resort also organises evening hikes, games and sports matches.
In the winter
The snowy mountains invite you to come and ski, snowboard, cross-country ski, tobogganing, hike on snow shoes and to make an adventurous tour with sled dogs or horses. The gondola situated in front of Dormio Resort Les Portes Du Mont Blanc offers immediate access to ski area Domaine de Balme-Poya. Ski area La Balme has beautifully designed slopes but also a great off-slope descent which allows you to descend into the valley and return by train to Vallorcine. Ski area La Poya is the place to be for your children if they want to learn how to ski. All other slopes in ski area Chamonix-Mont Blanc can also be easily reached by ski lift, bus or train.
In the summer
The beautiful nature reserves surrounding Vallorcine are very well suited for activities such as parasailing, mountain biking, climbing, bouldering, fishing and hiking. The village has no less than 350 km of excellently maintained hiking paths and 150 different routes. Lovers of the outdoor living choose for the lower valley paths because of the delicious scents in the forest or go higher up to taste blueberries, to test their endurance levels and to enjoy the fantastic views of the massifs of the Aiguilles Rouges, the Mont Blanc and the Swiss Alps.
Be surprised by the beauty of the splattering river Eau de Bérard, the waterfall of Bérard, the Emosson dam, the waterfall of Barberine, Mont Buet and the Tré-les-Eaux glacier. Along river l’Eau Noire, fishermen will find a great spot. The office de Haute Montagne in Chamonix has all routes and informs you about current weather conditions.
Lovers of golf will find everything their hearts desire at Golf Club de Chamonix, a spacious 18-holes golf course with small differences in altitude and a view of the Mont Blanc.
