Itinerary Suggestion

This is an itinerary suggestion using our Free Active Pack. Nothing is fixed, you may choose from many other alternative activities.


Day 1 - Fantasticable & Lake Montriond day out

This is a great day out whether you want to do the Fantasticable zipwire or not! Grab your walking shoes (or one of our free-use bikes) and head for the Super Morzine cable car. At the top, take the Zorres chairlift and then cycle or walk down to Lindarets  using offroad trails or easier fire roads and tarmac roads. 

En-route, why not try the Fantasticable (longest zip wire in Europe), have coffee or lunch at a mountain restaurant, visit the Goat Village for icecream (a mountain village populated with goats) and finish up at the stunning lake Montriond for a wild swim, before an easy cycle or bus ride home.

Day 2 - Lac Mines D’Or (by 2 wheels or 2 feet)

Try our Route Card 2 and walk or cycle to Lac Mines D’Or. Pass through forest trails and alongside the river and then up alongside mountain pastures and coniferous forests to this spectacular lake. Lunch at the restaurant or ask hotel reception for a picnic and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this lake. When you’re back in Morzine, why not try a parapenting flight and then finish the day off with a drink at the Hotel Aubergade (where the parapenters land).


Day 3 - Mountain biking with a guide

Why not try mountain biking or hiking with (or without) a guide? Guides are a paid for extra but we often connect like minded guests to share the cost of a guide. See the real mountain terrain and benefit from a local’s knowledge. It’s also a great way to experience biking using the lifts if you’re a novice rider.

Mountain biking

Day 4 - Canyoning or Via Ferrata

Try the addictive sport of Canyoning! One of our most popular add-on activities: it involves rappelling down a river canyon with rock slides, abseiling down waterfalls and jumping into rock pools as you journey down. It’s so much fun and close to our hotel.

Via Ferrata are high mountain routes pre-laid with fixed climbing aids like wire ladders, rungs, hand holds and pegs set into the rock face. So, roped up and led by an instructor, you can climb those hard-to-reach places and move through exposed alpine landscapes with the minimum of equipment.
