The walking and hiking paths are suitable for all ages and abilities. The Portes du Soleil region covers over 650kms and is easily accessed by 23 lifts and cable cars. You can enjoy relaxing walks along the river and through lush green alpine pastures, or head higher in search of spectacular views and mountain lakes. Guides are also available to ensure that you take the most spectacular routes.
Day 2: A water activity day
Visit the river Dranse or one of the many surrounding lakes and take your pick from a range of water based activities such as rafting, hydrospeeding, water skiing, white water rafting, wake boarding, kayaking or perhaps a gentle dip and donkey ride around Lac Montriond is more up your street.
Day 3: Explore Morzine
Morzine is a charming Savoyard town. There are numerous cultural sites worth visiting, as well as an Olympic sized swimming pool, ice rink, tennis courts, cafes and restaurants. And if you want some adult relaxation time, leave the kids in the capable hands of the nursery and escape to one of the spectacular golf courses.
Day 4: Mountain Biking
Morzine is synonymous with the best cycle race in the world - The Tour de France - so you can expect to find some of the finest cycle routes in the world here. The road cycling around Morzine and the surrounding Porte du Soleil region provides serene, intermediate and challenging cycling surrounded by spectacular scenery. For the more adventurous there are over 380 kms of mountain trails, a number of world cup downhill runs, and loads of cross country routes.
Day 5: Summer Sledging, Children's Farm and Horse Riding
Summer sledging is popular with children and big kids alike. There is a choice of two courses so you can choose the level of thrill for yourself. Then why not visit the children's farm in the Parc de Dérêches. Here you can stroke the donkeys and feed the goats and since it is next to the horse riding centre it is the perfect opportunity to explore the forest paths on horseback.
Day 6: Treetop adventure park & canyoning
Adults and children of all abilities (and nerves) can pursue these exhilarating challenges. Follow your guide on aerial runways, boardwalks, ropes, ladders, swings and zip-wires whilst securely harnessed onto overhead wires. There is even a bungee jump if you are brave enough! Then visit Nyon waterfall for an epic canyoning adventure. Trained guides will safely kit you up before you abseil, wade, jump slide and swim your way through waterfalls and Gorges following the rivers natural course.
Day 7: Relax by the swimming pool
The Multi Pass provides unlimited free access to five swimming pools. The biggest and best is undoubtedly the Olympic sized pool with children's pool, water slide and sunbathing terrace in the centre of Morzine (only 500m from Chalet Chapelle). So let the kids entertain themselves while you relax.
