Kayaking and Canoeing

A holiday to the lakes or the Alps would never be truly complete without a paddle around our beautiful and calm freshwater lakes. This excursion is readily available to do in all our resorts and requires no special skills. Simply bike (or walk) over to the lake and give it a go!

Kayaking in Morzine and Les Gets:

You’ll love paddling around the peaceful Lac Montriond. Simply bike over to the lake or catch the free shuttle bus and spend a glorious day by the lake kayaking and paddleboarding or wild swimming in this magical place. Possibly one of the most beautiful mountain lakes we’ve ever seen! Some may carry a small cost and not all activities are available in all resorts.

Kayaking in Tignes:

Guests to Tignes benefit from free access to the kayaking and paddle boarding on Tignes centrally located lake. It’s a short walk from all our hotels and free with the Sportignes Multi Activity pass (which comes with our free Active Packs).

Kayaking in Val D'Isere:

Guests will be required to bike over to Tignes (not for beginner bikers) to go kayaking and paddle boarding on Tignes’ lake. Or you can take part in our day trip to Tignes which includes a Sportignes card for the day and many more activities from sailing to pedalo and Acroland with its Giant Slides and Blob Jumps. Day Trips are from €20 and booked locally with our Reps when you arrive in resort.

Kayaking in Lake Biscarosse:

In Biscarosse we include kayaking and paddle boarding for free! So, grab a kayak or SUP from the rack and take to the warm waters of Lake Sanguinet to discover this expansive lake with all 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 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 and not all activities are available in all resorts.
