Morzine is a skier's paradise. Located in the French Alps, it offers high slopes, convenient ski lifts, and the perfect weather for some wintry fun. But what if you're not a skier? What if you're not the least bit athletic at all? Does this mean that Morzine isn't a place for you? Not necessarily! Although most people go to Morzine to ski, there are tons of other things to do around here. There's enjoying a spa day, for instance, which is just as fun. Or swimming at Aquariaz if you're up for this sort of stuff! In any case, non-skiers can still have the time of their lives here in Morzine!

7 Exciting Things to Do in Morzine Other Than Skiing


Walk Through The Alta Lumina Trail

If you thought Morzine was enchanting during the day, wait until nightfall! The Alta Lumina trail will show you that this ski town is just as stunning at night. Located in the village of Les Gets, this walkway is full of sparkling trees, glowing hot air balloons, and more. You'd sooner forget you were on a mountaintop altogether. You'll feel as if you're in a fantasyland and all you have to do is follow the light the way Alice followed the White Rabbit into Wonderland. And it's definitely a great holiday rival to Disneyland Paris, that's for sure!

Swim at Aquariaz

Out of all the things you can do in the French Alps, swimming probably wasn't what you expected, was it? You're in a ski town near snow-covered slopes. This is no place to swim unless you want to freeze to death, right? Well, not exactly! There's still Aquariaz in the Avoriaz area, after all. It's an aquatic center right at the heart of the Rhône-Alpes region, offering up an oasis of tropical paradise amidst all the snow and ice. Don't worry! The swimming pools come at a temperature of 30°C (86°F). Dive in and feel the warmth of paradise!

Drive A Dog Sled

Yes, you read that right! Instead of skiing down the slopes here in Morzine, you can head on over to the nearby Avoriaz area and ride a dog-led sled! Strong and beautiful huskies pull you all over this winter wonderland, making you feel as if you're a real-live Eskimo in either Alaska or Eastern Siberia. Of course, it helps that your big pups are adorable as heck too! After you've reached certain spots, you can take a break and cuddle up to these furry critters. When they're in a good mood, they'll cuddle right back or even pound you with kisses! What's not to love?

Go Horseback Riding

From a dog to a horse, who knew Morzine offers such fauna fun? If you want to feel like a true-blue adventurer without all the sports gear and stuff, why not go horseback riding in Morzine? There are plenty of places that offer just that, including the Equestrian Center of Morzine and L'écurie De Bérengère, to name a few. And though they're horseback riding schools that teach up-and-coming equestrians and jockeys, they offer rides to visitors too.
