The Olympic Flame in Alpes de Haute Provence

18/02/2024

The Olympic Flame in Alpes de Haute Provence

The Olympic Flame will officially arrive in our département on Saturday, May 11, 2024, and will be part of one of the first stages of its 68-day journey across France.




In the Alpes de Haute-Provence, the towns chosen to host the torch relay are: Barcelonnette; Colmars-les-Alpes; Digne-les-Bains; Forcalquier; Manosque (stage town); Moustiers-Sainte-Marie and Sisteron. 

The Flame will be lit in Olympia on April 16, 2024, in accordance with ancient tradition. After a 12-day relay in Greece and a crossing of the Mediterranean aboard the famous three-masted ship, the Belem, the Flame will officially arrive in France on May 8, 2024, heralding the return of the Games after a 100-year wait.

Our hotel is in the center of Sisteron, so you'll be at the heart of the festivities, and less than an hour from Digne-les-Bains, Manosque and Forcalquier if you want to follow this stage of the Olympic Flame in our beautiful region. 

If you'd like to relax after the event, please contact us to book a room.
