Activities for young children

We can’t emphasise enough just how much there is to do for families with younger children and infants in Morzine during the summer!  The array of activities is huge - many of which are free with the ‘Multi Pass’.

For example there’s a magnificent outdoor / indoor pool complex complete with children’s pools, flume, bouncy castle, restaurant and grassy play areas. Neighbouring Avoriaz houses ‘Aquariaz’, a Centre-Parcs style fun pool with a tropical theme. Lake Montriond and Les Gets Lake have a safe beach/swimming area, with canoes & paddleboards for hire at Montriond and there's a flume at Les Gets.

Two separate 'high rope' adventure parks have courses specifically designed for younger children aged 3 upwards. There is an impressive indoor skating rink for ice-skating and watching ice-hockey matches, mountain donkey rambles that follow an old mountain smuggler's trail, mini golf, trampolining, tennis, horse and cart rides, pony rides, farm parks & visits, nature trails, merry go round and a summer toboggan/luge (younger children can ride with their parents) - to name but a few! Children aged approximately 6-8 upwards can go horse riding and even try paragliding!

There is a gentle mountain bike trail following the Morzine river valley and some beautiful walks in the village, forests, mountains and valleys. Thanks to the Multi Pass, the cable cars and chairlifts allow free & easy access into the mountains without strenuous ascents. Visit waterfalls, build river dams, have a picnic overlooking Mont Blanc, pick blueberries, discover quaint mountain restaurants or head to the mountain goat village - the opportunities for quality family time in the great (and free) outdoors are endless!

There is a lovely family vibe in the village during the school holidays, with local festivals and interactive children’s activities organised by the Morzine tourist office.

Granted, some of the more adventurous activities do have a minimum age restriction of around 8-12 years old - although this can vary for some activities according to the size/height of child and ability/confidence level. A good excuse for returning to Morzine when the kids are a little older for "round 2" of the mountain fun!

The list of things to do with small children goes on and on – making Morzine a fantastic summer holiday destination for all the family.

“Morzine was the perfect place to go and Simply Morzine provided an excellent service. Our transfers, lift passes and ski hire, were organised which meant we could ski the day we arrived. We can definitely recommend staying with Simply Morzine."
