Experience an active holiday with a difference this winter with a trip to stunning Samoens in the French Alps. Known as a true hidden gem in the winter ski destination portfolio by those who prefer an 'off the beaten track' break, Samoens is connected to the fourth biggest skiing domain in France, the Grand Massif, and offers travellers a serene home away from home in the snow.

Not only does Samoens boast a calm character that is unparalleled by larger resorts, but it also presents a broad range of activities that will keep the most adventurous traveller entertained. From the newly-launched e-fat bike to dog-sledding to ice climbing, Samoens offers a flurry of wintry thrills for the whole family within a charming environment.

Discover The E-Fat Bike

This year sees the arrival of the e-fat bike in Samoens. For a super cycle, these mountain bikes are fitted with extra wide tires that enable snow bunnies to make tracks through the alps, without getting stuck in the powder. Supervised sessions with a Moniteur Cycliste Français instructor are now available to book from €39 per person, with children from the age of six onwards being invited to join. Thrill-seekers can choose from a two-hour Discover ride; a half day ride including lunch; or even a night time ride under the stars, which also includes a tasting of delicious local products.
