Kayaking and Canoeing

A holiday to the French Alps would not be complete without a paddle around our beautiful mountain lakes and now it's free to do with our Active Pack, except Val D'Isere which requires a day trip fee.


Morzine and Les Gets guests get one free session of paddleboarding or kayaking per week on our Active Packs at Lac Montriond.

Tignes guests get unlimited free sessions of kayaking and paddleboarding all week with the Sportignes Multi Activity pass (free with our Active Packs) on the main lake in central Tignes.

Val D'Isere guests will be required to bike over to Tignes (not for beginners) or take part in our day trip to Tignes which includes a Sportignes card for the day and many activities from sailing to pedalo and paddleboarding, as well as kayaking. Day Trip from €20 which is booked locally with our Reps.

So, grab a kayak from the rack and take to the warm waters of Lake Biscarosse to discover this expansive lake with its inlets, hamlets and cafes which fringe the shore. Perhaps find yourself a new beach for morning coffee, or try a spot of fishing… as many kayakers do. Fishing gear, we don’t supply, but buoyancy aids we do!

The Low Down

Mountain lakes with their breath-taking scenery are always enhanced from a small boat. Kayaking is offered (without instruction) using easy to use ‘sit-on-top’ kayaks and are a free activity as part of our Active Packs.

Kayaks are suitable for all ages and the range of boats on offer will take from 1 to 2 persons, and so great for family fun with small children.

A canoe is generally a 2 or 3 person open boat - perfect for family or touring, and a Kayak is a solo closed boat. Both are available in most resorts.

Over 80 Activities for you to try!

Our Holidays come with more than enough free activities for your week included in our ‘Free Active Packs’ (which are worth up to £355). You can try even more activities once in resort. Some may carry a small cost.
