Outdoor Activities

As in Winter, Morzine has a full armoury of activities, events and visitor attractions, to entice every sort of holiday maker. From hiking to biking, the thrills and spills of zip wires and Fantasticable to horse riding, golfing and parapenting, there is a bit of mountain for everyone.

Its location, just over an hour from Geneva, makes it a stunning base from which to access and explore the whole Savoie region. Culturally important towns such as Annecy, Yvoire and Evian are short drives away and access to Lake Geneva (via Thonon) is only 40 minutes away. Here you can discover another raft of activities to occupy you from local markets and lakeside restaurants to yachting, water-skiing and lounging beachside on the Lake.

You don’t need to travel further than Morzine itself, to find yourself in a summer playground, with plentiful sporting activities for all the family. In and around town, there is access to:
