Summer Activities in Morzine
While some ski resorts can be fairly dead in the summer months Morzine is not! The village is so beautiful that it’s great for visiting at any time of the year to admire the scenery, and of course during the summer you have the opportunity to get out in the mountains and hills by hiking.
You can also get out on a mountain bike, and for serious mountain bikers Morzine is actually one of the top destinations in Europe. There’s plenty of downhill mountain biking in the Portes du Soleil region, but Morzine is definitely at the centre of this, and from here you can easily access numerous other mountain biking trails. Several can be accessed directly from Morzine by chairlift and cable car, so this really is a great place to base yourself.
Some reports even suggest that Morzine has more visitors in the summer than it does in the winter, and as well as hiking and mountain biking you can enjoy a round of golf in Morzine, or for a little more adventure there’s the chance to go caving here too.
When Should You Visit?:
Winters in Morzine are perfect for enjoying those winter sports as there’s usually a good amount of snow here. Temperatures are obviously cool, but not harshly so. Spring is often the quietest time as the snow is melting and it’s not yet good enough for hiking and mountain biking but by the summer warm and sunny weather makes it ideal.
