Top 5 Winter Activities in Morzine

Discover one of Morzine's alternative winter activities this season.

Whilst Morzine is a haven for skiers with over 650 km of slopes to explore, there are plenty of other winter activities to enjoy during your stay in this stunning resort; from ice skating to nocturnal sledding, here are some of our favourites.

1. Snowmobiling

A unique winter activity, what better way to discover Morzine than by making your way through the snowy forests on a snowmobile high above the village at sunset?

With rides from 17:30 until 23:00, sessions usually last an hour with two guides on hand to help. Whilst drivers must be over 18 for the main rides, children can also partake in this adrenaline-fueled activity with electric snowmobiles for 4 to 10 year olds and the possibility of 13 + year olds being able to ride on the back of snowmobiles driven by an adult.

Taking you through a combination of forests and piste trails, enjoy the tranquillity of nature as you create your own tracks through the snow.

2. Nocturnal Sledding

A fun activity for the whole family to enjoy, nocturnal sledding is a unique way to spend some extra time on the slopes once the lifts have closed. Taking place at the top of the Pleney, complete with a sledge and headtorch you will be ready to head down the mountain before enjoying a drink at one of the lively bars at the bottom of the slopes.

Taking place most evenings of the winter season, this exhilarating experience is not to be missed.

3. Helicopter Flights

Experience a helicopter flight and discover Morzine from a whole other perspective. Sit back, relax and enjoy the panoramic views of the Alps as you are flown over the spectacular mountain peaks.

Lasting for around 30 minutes, this thrilling experience is the perfect way to take in the natural beauty of the Portes du Soleil.

4. Ice Skating

Lovers of ice skating will be able to enjoy two ice rinks in Morzine, with both an indoor and outdoor rink available.

Skate on the ice of the local Penguins, the Morzine-Avoriaz hockey club, and enjoy the large indoor 56x26m rink.The perfect place to practice your turns and stops, the outdoor rink situated on the Tourist Office square is also very popular during the winter season. Both rinks are accompanied by music and lights for some family fun on the ice.

5. Ice Climbing

Led by a qualified mountain guide and equipped with crampons and ice axes, ice climbing is an exciting winter activity which uses similar techniques to those used when rock climbing. Following a safety demonstration, your guide will teach you the basic techniques of ice climbing before you will take on breathtaking ice walls under the supervision of a professional.
