Walking Styles

Alpine Walking

  • Free use of marked trails - up to 850 km in Morzine & Les Gets!
  • Free Trail Maps and Route Cards - all resorts
  • Free Liftpass in all resorts

The mountains offer truly rewarding walks, with spectacular views, peace & tranquillity, and of course excellent mountain restaurants or tavernas. All our alpine resorts feature hundreds of miles of marked trails and, you can take a guide or we can provide you with maps and suggestions for a gentle stroll or a more adventurous hike. The ski lift system is open during the summer, allowing walkers to cover many miles of scenic alpine terrain whilst opening up the higher altitudes to gentle ramblers. We offer a free lift pass for Morzine, Les Gets, Val d’Isère and Tignes*

Nordic Walking

  • Free Use of Poles at our hotels in Morzine & Les Gets
  • Free Trail Maps and Route Cards - all resorts
  • Free Liftpass in all resorts (except Chamonix)

Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking – something we can all do, yet twice as effective! It utilises poles in order to add three main benefits:

1. Poles ensure that the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs. 2. Poles help stabilise the walker over tricky terrain. 3. Poles help propel the walker along. This means the walker works harder than usual yet the support from the poles makes it feel easier!

All our resorts are ideal for Nordic Walking and for many we offer free use of poles. Each resort has at least 400 to 800kms of tracks and trails for walking. Nordic Walking is one of the fastest growing fitness activities because it is highly effective, affordable and fun!

Glacier Walking

  • Hire Crampons and ice axes locally
  • Free Trail Maps and Route Cards - all resorts
  • Free Liftpass in all resorts

Take your first steps on a glacier with one of our Tignes glacial walks. Go it alone with crampons and ice axes rented locally for a small fee or experience a proper Glacial walk or mini-adventure by joining a guided group which we can arrange in resort.

A Glacial walk is suited to all fitness levels and will show you how to use crampons and axes properly. Experience spectacular scenery and the secrets of the Mont Blanc Massif in Chamonix or the Grande Motte in Tignes with their vast ice flows and awesome features. This walk is accessible for all abilities. We can provide hire of crampons and walking boots. We advise taking high block sun cream, hats and sunglasses.

Via Ferrata

  • Pay for guide locally (from 45 Euros)
  • Run time: half-day to a full day
  • Free Trail Maps and Route Cards - all resorts
  • Ideal for all ages 8 +

Via Ferrata is a variation on climbing and is in fact the term given to high mountain routes with fixed climbing aids: wire ropes, rungs, pegs, ladders, and bridges. Via Ferrata consists of rope assisted walks and moderate to easy climbs suitable for all ages and abilities.

Via Ferrata is the name commonly used to describe the high-level foot paths found in the Alps that use fixed cables for protection and steel ladders to surmount difficult sections of mountain terrain. Via Ferrata is very enjoyable and these highly popular mountain walks do not require any special climbing skills. They give everyone an opportunity to move through spectacular, exposed alpine scenery with minimal equipment.
