How Alta Lumina is created
Alta Lumina, designed and produced by Moment Factory company, has been built in Les Gets after more than a year of design and two months of works. A hundred or so light-emitting diodes and the same number of speakers are scattered throughout the forest of the Lac des Écoles, along with smoke machines, creating a magical atmosphere that envelopes you as you walk among the trees listening to the story and the music.
The Chalets 1066 team had the privilege of visiting Alta Lumina at its opening event and found it was an enchanting experience.
There is free parking at the Perriers car park and the shuttle bus leaves at regular intervals.
