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 areas play areas. Neighbouring Avoriaz houses ‘Aquariaz’, a Centre-Parcs style fun pool with a tropical theme.

Two separate adventure parks (‘Go-Ape’ in the mountains) have courses specifically designed for younger children aged 3 upwards. Lake Montriond and Les Gets Lake have safe beach/swimming area, with canoes for hire at Montriond & flume at Les Gets. There is an impressive skating rink for ice-skating and watching ice-hockey matches, local festivals and interactive children’s activities organised by the Morzine tourist office, mountain donkey rambles following an old mountain smuggler's trail, crazy golf, trampolining, tennis, horse and cart rides, pony rides, farm park, merry go round and a superb summer toboggan/luge. 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. The cable cars and chairlifts allow easy access into the mountains without strenuous ascents. Visit waterfalls, build river dams, have a picnic overlooking Mont Blanc, discover quaint mountain restaurants or the mountain goat village - the opportunities for quality family time in the great (and free) outdoors are endless!

Granted, some of the more adventurous activities do have a minimum age restriction of around 8-10 years old - although this can vary for some activities according to the size/height of child and ability/confidence level.

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

“This was the first time we had tried a summer holiday like this and Simply Morzine catered for our needs really well. Our children preferred it to a traditional beach hotel, loving the variety of activities on offer. We can't wait to visit again.”
