Other activities in and around Morzine
Morzine is a charming Savoyard town with bustling cafés, lively bars, good quality restaurants, and local boutique-style shops. The surrounding lush green slopes, tranquil lakes, playful rivers and striking cliffs provide a natural playground for innumerable outdoor summer activities for every age and ability. After a brief break in May, the local amenities and lifts re-open to provide access to the Portes du Soleils 650km of biking and hiking trails. In addition to biking and hiking the more adventurous holiday maker can try white water rafting, canyoning, parapenting, quad biking, water skiing and hydro speeding. For those who prefer a more relaxing holiday they can soak up the alpine sunshine, swim in the lakes, join a French language school, visit a museum, play golf, summer sledge, play tennis and walk or bike along wooded, river-side trails.
