Once a rural market town, Morzine is now a busy little Alpine town with a lively spirit that can be reached in under an hour from Geneva.
Morzine and Avoriaz make up the Portes du Soleil area which spans across two countries and thirteen resorts. Morzine is a town full of life offering a range of sporting and cultural activities.
There are plenty of excellent restaurants and bars for you to enjoy the après ski during the winter. There is enough variety of pisted runs and off piste routes across the skiing domain to entertain both strong skiers and snowboarders, not forgetting the numerous snowparks. Why not try some of the other winter activities available whilst you are in the mountains; glacier walking, helicopter tours, a ride in a horse-drawn sleigh, husky sledding, ice climbing, snow shoeing or even hire a snow mobile. Morzine is also one of the few resorts in the Alps that hosts night skiing.
In the summer, Morzine offers mountain bikers some of the world’s best mountain biking terrain, boasting up to 380kms of marked trails with varying degrees of technical skill required. Road riding around the beautiful alpine villages and many high cols is a growingly popular summer activity. With such variety on offer, Morzine has been proud to be a venue for the Tour de France and host to Mountain biking championships. Just a few of the other options on offer include: paragliding, golfing, fishing, canyoning and tennis.
