The village is a residential one, and offers you the opportunity to visit the old streets and the museum of traditions and arts "Chasal Lento" located in the old presbytery of the church.
By taking the "chemin des serres", you can discover from an orientation table, a unique viewpoint on the lake of Chambon (hydroelectric reservoir) and the Romanche valley as well as the "grand pic de la Meije" which culminates at 3982 meters
On the road between Grenoble and Briançon, Bourg d'Oisans is located on a major communication axis to cross the Alps.
Extending over 22 km, the municipality encompasses the entire lower agricultural plain of the Romanche, from Rochetaillée to the beginning of the Vénéon valley, with the Lauvitel lake.
The Bourg d'Oisans basin, bordered by folded cliffs and steep wooded slopes, is very characteristic of the work of erosion and accumulation carried out by the waters of glaciers.
