Just a couple of miles from the high altitude border with Switzerland, here life is leisurely, and the village has lost nothing of its original charm and Savoyarde way of life. Unlike most purpose built ski resorts, Morzine is a working Alpine village and maintains all it’s original local traditions. Many sports and activities have developed over the years making use of the natural landscape not available in other holiday destinations. Taking time off from activities you can visit local lakes, museums, working farms, mines, summits and gorges.
Once the snow has melted away, the mountains spring into life with lush green pastures and beautiful flowers. The Alps in the summer return to their more traditional farming roots: a vibrant and welcoming community with a serious twist on adventure.
Tee off on a range of superb golf courses, explore the mountains on horseback or simply enjoy the hundreds of kilometers of mountain trails on foot. And it is not all uphill - let the lifts take the strain, getting you to those distant spots to enjoy a magical picnic surrounded by snow-capped peaks. For those in search of adrenaline, try your hand at mountain biking, climbing and canyoning. Take to the skies by parapente or plunge down local rivers by white water raft.
