Whether you’re interested in booking a winter getaway with the kids or thinking ahead to summer 2022, Morzine is the perfect location. In this blog we look at some lesser known but hugely enjoyable family activities on offer in Morzine.
Winter family activities
One of the great things about Morzine is that no matter what season you choose to visit there’s always something to do. Morzine is well known during the winter months for its thrilling range of winter sports. However, you don’t need to be ski pros to enjoy Morzine during the winter. Here are three of our favourite family activities to try out this winter.
1. Morzine Slate Mines
Bring the family on a guided tour of the Morzine slate workshop where you’ll learn the origin of the slate mine as well as understand how the slate is crafted and get to watch the craftsmen in action! Visits are Fridays at 10:30am, booking is required and children’s entry is just €3. A fantastic way to pass the morning.
2. Ice skating
A quintessential winter time activity is ice skating and we highly recommend either the indoor ice rink located under the suspension bridge as well as the outdoor skating rink. We particularly recommend the outdoor rink as once darkness falls it looks spectacular and the kids will love it!
3. Ice hockey
If you time your holiday right you could be lucky enough to watch our local hockey team, Les Pingouins. This team is fabulous to watch and feature both homegrown and international talent. You can watch them play at the Palais du Sport and tickets are available from the Tourist office or at the door. Dates and fixtures can be found here.
Summer family activities
During the summer months we’re extremely lucky to bask in glorious sunshine and Morzine attracts those with a passion for the outdoors and staying active. However you don’t have to hike or cycle to enjoy Morzine during the summer months. Here are three of our favourite summer time family activities.
1. Tree top adventures
One of our favourite family friendly activities is in the tree top adventure playground which is designed for children and adults alike! Featuring zip wires and rope bridges you’ll feel just like Tarzan swinging between the trees! If your children are younger and you’d prefer a more child friendly version then be sure to check out Indiana Adventures at the Parc Dereches.
It’s really not a summer holiday without some swimming! Morzine has an amazing outdoor Olympic sized swimming pool complex which features sun lounger areas, a poolside restaurant and water slides. With a Multi Pass you’ll be granted free access. Alternatively there are a number of natural swimming lakes just outside Morzine in Les Gets and Montriond.
3. Horse riding
Is there anything more exciting than the prospect of horse riding with the whole family across the beautiful terrain of Morzine? The Morzine Horse Riding School is set in the riverside Parc Des Dérêches and is the perfect place for beginners right up to advanced riders to enjoy lessons and to rent ponies for treks in the park.
