Outside the large skiing areas of the resort, close to the high alpine pastures where the cowbells of the herds cattle ring out, discover the wide open spaces, lakes and peaks of the first French National Park, created in 1963.
The massif of la Vanoise is bordered by two major valleys in the Savoy region: the Maurienne valley, where the river Arc flows and the Tarentaise valley, the home of the river Isère. Saint Bon-Courchevel is in the Tarentaise valley.
Saint Bon-Courchevel is one of the 28 towns and villages in the la Vanoise National Park and is situated to the west of the park in the Bozel valley near Champagny and Pralognan-en-Vanoise. This is the most westerly village in the area of the Trois Vallées (three valleys), in the peripheral zone of la Vanoise.
