Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval is classified amongst the "Most Beautiful Villages of France" with regard to its rich 9-century-old architecture. Sixt's ski area is linked with Grand Massif (265 km of alpine ski trails) via the fabulous "Piste des Cascades", a 14 km blue trail from the resort of Flaine (1700m of vertical descent) to Sixt. In summer, hikers can wander in the largest Natural Reserve of Haute-Savoie and access the 5 mountain refuges of the community. The "Cirque du Fer à Cheval", the "Rouget waterfall" and the Tines' Gorges" are scenic sites that should not be missed while here.
