How can one holiday destination keep your whole family happy this summer? Action packed or laid-back, toddler, teen or young at heart; Whatever the holiday you’re dreaming of, Morzine has something to keep everybody, and every pocket, happy.

Here are our top recommendations for a fun and activity-filled summer holiday in the glorious French Alps.

For the adrenaline junkies out there, Morzine and the surrounding areas will keep you busy from dawn to dusk with a huge range of action-packed options. Rest assured, our favourite pulse-raisers take full advantage of the dramatic local geography.

Mountain biking in Morzine

Morzine is a mecca for mountain biking enthusiasts with great access via the lift system to a huge variety of terrain and difficulty levels all set in the stunning Portes du Soleil scenery. Find out more in our dedicated guide here.

Summer activities high in the sky!

Get a privileged view of the mountain scenery with a bird’s eye view. Sail high over Morzine on a tandem paragliding flight or whizz like a torpedo from peak to peak on a zip-wire suspended 250 metres above the ground; the Fantasticable certainly lives up to its name! More sedate but certainly no less exhilarating are the tree top adventure parks.  See more here.

Morzine water sports

If the White-Water calls, you won’t be disappointed by the local line-up. With something to suit all age and bravery levels, our White-Water rafting partner, AN Rafting is just a short drive away. For thrill seekers wanting to get up close and personal with the wet stuff, Canyoning and White Water Hydrospeeding will be just your ‘tasse de thé’! Read our guide to all things water here.

Sit back and relax in Morzine this summer

Not everyone wants to live life on the edge. If you’re looking for a more chilled vibe, Morzine is just the place to chill out and recharge your batteries.  There’s a good range of spa options in the town or you might just like to put your feet up in the sun with a good book while your adrenaline junkies get their alpine kicks. How does a yoga class in the open air or a stroll around the beautiful, turquoise waters of Lac Montriond sound? Happier in or on the water? There’s a dedicated swimming area and paddling pool or hire out a canoe or stand up on a paddle board. Finish off your lakeside day with a picnic prepared and served by your Simply Morzine chalet team. Now that sounds Simply perfect to us!

The summer lift opening means that many of the villages of the Portes du Soleil you may have visited on your skis or snowboard are easily accessible to walkers throughout the summer holidays.

Things to do with toddlers this summer in Morzine

Something we are often asked is whether a mountain holiday really is the thing for young families. Sure, it’s a wonderful adventure playground for teens, tweens and the young at heart of all ages, but does it really have something to offer toddlers and their grown-ups? Our reply is always an emphatic ‘YES!’ We know from experience that your summer holiday in Morzine will be one that creates childhood memories that will keep your offspring wanting to come back again and again, maybe even, (like some of us), with their own children or grandchildren!
