Did you know that Summer is one of the best times of the year to visit the French-Alps?
There’s a saying amongst the expats in Morzine that goes ‘You come for the Winter, but you stay for the Summer’ and there’s good reason for that.
Most of us were initially attracted to Morzine by its activities such as skiing and snowboarding. With such a huge and diverse area to explore in the mountains, why wouldn’t you be? For those who decide to stay for the summer holidays, it is said and quite rightly so, that they will never go home!
There is so much to do in this resort located in the French-Alps during the summer holidays and although Morzine is getting busier each year there is still a relaxed atmosphere suited to families and children!
Mountain biking in Morzine
Are you a mountain bike lover? Morzine is probably best known for being one of the best and largest mountain bike parks in Europe. I can also assure you that it has an endless supply of single track to explore. You just need to know where to look!
Here at the Aiglon Morzine we have everything a mtb biker requires from cleaning and maintenance areas to secure storage and drying room. We can also arrange guides and instructors for beginners and advanced mtb riders.
As well as mountain biking, Morzine is slowly getting recognised for its road biking. We have a number of cycling routes that start and finish in town some of which take in some ‘Tour de France’ climbs such as the infamous ‘Col de Joux Plane’.
Are you ready for a good time with your bike?
