Sometimes your legs feel tired and you need a break from your skis or your snowboard, or maybe you don't ski at all. There’s a wealth of amazing activities in Morzine and we include some we think are worth giving a try.

Swimming

Swimming

The main swimming complex in Morzine is fantastic. It offers a 25 meter swimming pool alongside a plunge pool and a kids splash area. If you’re looking for a serious swim then there are lanes cordoned off for just that at all times. There’s also a large swimming area for the more leisurely swimmer. The pool is part of the Palais des Sports complex in the centre of Morzine. If you’re looking for some extra relaxation, you can also buy a pass to the pool’s sauna. This is a firm favourite on bad weather days so pick your time cleverly if you want to avoid swimming with lots of people.

There’s also a fantastic pool in Avoriaz. This is more geared to families and isn’t really for serious swimming. Aquariaz has rapids, a hot tub overlooking the mountains and a very popular slide. This is open most afternoons throughout the season and has loads for the children to do. Again it’s very popular on bad weather days and can get very busy.

Spa and Gym

If what you really want is relaxation and complete luxury then you’ll be pleased to hear that there are a number of spas to choose from in and around Morzine.

Shopping

Shopping

Morzine’s offering of shops and cafes has really increased over the last few years. You can easily spend the day mooching around the souvenir and clothes shops whilst enjoying delicious coffee and cakes in one of the many cafes and bars in the centre of town.

Sledging

If you don’t fancy skiing but still love the snow then why not give sledging a go? There are loads of places around Morzine for you to head if you fancy a bit of snowy fun. The Aubergade hotel at the base of the Pleney is the perfect base for a family sledge. It has a vast outside area backing onto a fantastic sledging slope. You can enjoy a drink or two whilst having some free fun! If you don’t have access to a sledge then most of the ski hire shops will lend you one for very little money.

The adrenaline seekers amongst you might be looking for something a little more daring. Who said sledging couldn’t be daring?! Why not sign up for a night sledging experience down the Pleney? These sessions run several times a week depending on take up and are hugely fun! You are taken to the top of the Pleney, given a sledge and a head torch and guided down the slope as dusk falls over the mountains. It’s effectively bumper cars on the snow and not for the faint-hearted! Night sledging costs around €25 per person depending on the size of your group.

Snow shoeing

Snow shoeing

Not skiing doesn’t mean you can’t experience the amazing snowy countryside of the Portes du Soleil. Why not hire some snowshoes and explore some of the amazing walking routes around Morzine and Les Gets. Plan your route first to ensure it’s safe and not avalanche prone. If you want to go a little further afield then there are also walking guides who will take you out to explore some of the hidden gems of the region.

Ice Skating

Morzine and Les Gets both have amazing outdoor ice rinks right in the centre of the two resorts. They’re open most afternoons and both boast stunning views of the surrounding mountains. It’s a perfect activity for the whole family, including the youngsters, as both rinks have stability aids in the form of penguins for the smaller children. If the weather is bad and you don’t fancy skating in outside, then Morzine is also home to a huge indoor rink. This is open to the public most afternoons and is a perfect bad weather activity.

Ice Skating
Ice Hockey

Ice Hockey

If you like an evening out with a difference then get yourself to a Morzine ice hockey match. There are games each week and you’ll have a fantastic time. This is something great to do when you’re in Morzine as there’s a real buzz at the matches. Most games take place mid-week from about 19:00. It’s exhilarating, full of fun and you’ll find yourself an avid fan of Morzine before you know it!
