With hundreds of kilometres of hiking trails around Morzine you can choose your level of difficulty, distance and height to climb. You can also use the cable cars and chairlifts to give you a head start or you can start in more remote areas where you have more chance of spotting wild animals. We are so lucky to have some pretty incredible waterfalls around Morzine such as Cascade de Nyon, Cascade de Ardent or Cascade des Brocheaux so why not combine a great hike with some great views?
Over the past 10 years Morzine and Les Gets have become ‘the’ place for downhill and cross country mountain biking. There are hundreds of miles of signposted bike trails and if you wish, you can use the chairlifts to help with the ascent.
We can book local guides who will take you to climbs suitable to your abilities. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced climber, all climbs are graded to suit your ability and are a great way to see the mountains at their best.
Experience all the thrills of extreme climbing but without ropes. Safety harnesses mean you are safe from falling but you will certainly feel the adrenaline, hanging to the side of a cliff a thousand feet in the air.
Go off for a day or two. You can camp or stay in mountain refuges. You will never experience quietness like a night in the mountains and maybe pop over to Switzerland and back!
Trekking with Donkeys
Take the children to peaks and mountain passes on the back of a donkey. They will have lots of fun and no tired legs.
For the very fit and adventurous you can take guided treks to more extreme areas such as the summit of Mont Blanc.
Walk along the mountain river beds wearing suitable waterproof clothing.
Using the Afghans' breathing technique you can learn to walk effortlessly. Listen to your body, control your breathing, and generally feel in touch with your body and full of energy.
Guided tours for families with a compass, a map, a picnic and a hunt for hidden treasure.
Morzine is a cyclist's paradise as there are 15 mapped road cycling routes starting here as well as 25 mountain passes within 50 km. The Tour de France is known to visit the area, so if you fancy trying out the famous Col de Joux Plan climb you know where to come!
Caving / Pot-holing
Caving or pot-holling (also known as Speleology) is an exciting way to explore the Alps mountain caves and their intricate tunnel systems which have been naturally formed by the rock over time.
There are over 2 milion people doing geocaching around the world and some of them (perhaps surprisingly) are right here in Morzine. It started off in 2000 after a computer geek decided that GPS could be a "really exciting" way to do a treasure hunt. You go in search of a treasure by using the GPS system on your mobile device - once you've found it, you write your name in a logbook and replace the treasure you decide to take.
