Summer Activity Guide

Morzine is a great place to be in the summer. There are so many different options of activities for all walks of life whether you like water sports, hiking, mountain biking or even just relaxing, there is something here for everyone. After years of living here, we have some great knowledge to help you organise and book your holiday ahead of time and make sure you don’t miss out on any of the fun.

Here are a few of our favourites:

Rafting

A short drive down the valley from Morzine takes you to Frogs Rafting. These guys run various exciting trips on the Dranse River. With options for all from 8 years old, you can plan the trip depending what you are after. Whatever the weather, rain or shine, this is the perfect activity to get in and try.

 

Canyoning

One of our personal favourites is Canyoning. Its a great way to cool off on a hot day and packed full of adventure. Make your way down a canyon by jumping, sliding, abseiling and swimming, from small jumps to big jumps, you really feel like your back to nature. Jeremy from Frogs is always excited to get in the canyon and share with you his passion for the water.

 

Climbing

If you’re interested in climbing, there is endless amounts of locations here with grades to suit everyone. Whether its your first time and you are after a bit of instruction or your a veteran climber looking for a new challenge or a mulit-pitch, we can help you find the best place to go.

 

Mountain biking

Morzine is a mecca for mountain biking. Its has thousands of kilometres of down hill and cross country trails, an extensive lift system, bike park areas and beautiful mountain scenery to top it off. The lifts are open from mid June until mid September opening up the massive Portes du Soliel area for your enjoyment. The trails are graded like a ski resort so you can hit the trails you feel comfortable on. We are able to organise bike hire for you in town if you don’t want to bring your own.
