Walking/rambling holidays in Morzine
A walking holiday in Morzine provides a chance to unwind, fill your lungs with fresh mountain air, take in stupendous views of snow capped peaks and ramble through alpine forests on your way to the summits. We are keen walkers ourselves and can help plan your itinerary according to the needs of the party. For groups looking for a more strenuous challenge, we can organise excellent qualified local French mountain guides for those technical routes into the higher Alps.
Alpine golf holidays in France
Some of the best golf courses in France can be played within a 20 to 75-minute drive of Morzine. Whether set against the backdrop of spectacular mountain scenery or overlooking Lake Geneva, the courses are cleverly designed, superbly maintained and offer a fantastic golfing experience. When planning your golfing itinerary, don’t forget there’s a wealth of alternative activities and sightseeing options for the golf widows or widowers in your group – so everyone has a summer holiday in the Alps to remember.
Alpine sightseeing holidays in the French Alps
Aside from beautiful Morzine itself, there are many delightful places to visit in the Haute-Savoie. Some of our most popular day trips include: Chamonix & Mont Blanc, Lake Geneva (including the medieval town of Yvoire and beautiful spa town of Evian), Lake Annecy, Samoëns and Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval. These locations offer some of the most spectacular scenery in the Alps. Our half-day trips close to home include Lake Montriond, the old goat village of Les Linderets and the futuristic ski resort of Avoriaz. We visit the charming Abondance valley with its ancient working abbey, the fromagerie, home of Abondance cheese, and enjoy a guided walk through the spectacular Devil’s Bridge Gorge.
Alpine flora and garden holiday in France
After the winter snow, late springtime and early summer in the Alps sees the alpine meadows bursting with flowers and the mountains come alive. This is the perfect time to join us to enjoy the beauty of alpine plants and flowers in their natural settings, and to discover amazing alpine gardens. We visit the botanical garden in the alpine village of Samoëns, home to 5,000 varieties of alpine plants from across the world, and the cloister garden full of aromatic and medicinal plants and herbs in the picturesque medieval town of Yvoire on the shores of Lake Geneva.
