What To Do in Morzine for A Day

November 08, 2022
2022-11-08
Morzine, the scenic ski town near the Swiss border, is among the more underrated destinations in France. With the lovely Paris, the charming French Riviera, and more as competition, it's not hard to see why this place isn't as popular. But for those who want to see and experience a winter wonderland, there's no better place than Morzine! Even just spending a day here will keep you busy. You can ski between two countries, for example. Or book A Tandem Paragliding Flight too, which is also fun. As well as C if you're into that sort of thing! These are just some of the best things to do in a day in Morzine!

What To Do in Morzine for A Day


Ski Between Two Countries

You probably don't need anyone to tell you that the best thing to do in Morzine is to ski. It is a ski town, after all. The place was practically made for the winter sport. But what sets this destination apart from all the others of its kind is that it's the only place where you can ski in two countries at the same time. Remember that Morzine is located in the French Alps, a mountain range that borders various countries. The location of Morzine, in particular, sits on the border between France and Switzerland. As you ski down the slopes, you're not sure whether you're still in France or already in Switzerland.

Ride A Télécabine

Riding the télécabine, which is what they call the ski lifts here in Morzine, is so exciting that it's practically its own separate activity. Though you only ride it when you want to go up the ski slopes, you can't miss the awesome sights you'll see on the way. The further you rise up, the more you get to see the magical natural wonders of the French countryside. Think scenic mountains, incredible forests, and if you're lucky, some fascinating fauna too. You won't see these sorts of things anywhere else. Or at least, not anywhere else in France!

Book A Tandem Paragliding Flight

Why just ride a télécabine when you can fly instead? That's right! One of the most exciting things to do in Morzine is to g paragliding. And if you're here with someone else, such as on a honeymoon with your new spouse, then you can also book a tandem paragliding flight. There isn't a more romantic way to see all the amazing views that the French Alps have to offer than flying high up in the sky with the person you love. It's bound to be one of the most precious memories from your honeymoon in Morzine!

Climb Ice

One of the more common things to do in the French Alps, since it is a mountain range, is to go rock climbing. That's all well and good but during the winter, when practically everything here is covered in snow, why not try your hand at ice climbing? With technical axes on hand, you can climb up the ice walls that surround various parts of Morzine. Do note that it's a lot more physically challenging and strenuous than rock climbing. You're probably better off doing it with an experienced climber if it's your first time.

Go Mountainbiking

Not in the mood to tire your arms out climbing walls of ice? Then what about your legs? Since you're already high up in the mountains of the French Alps, why not go mountain biking? There are plenty of rentals in town. You won't find it difficult to get a bike and start your adventure. And though it's still a strenuous sport, it's not as physically taxing as skiing, snowboarding, rock climbing, and the like. It even requires less gear. All you really need is your bike, a helmet, and a backpack full of travel necessities.

Go Kayaking Down The Dranse River

One of the lesser-known and highly underrated spots here in the French Alps is the Dranse River. Located only less than 30 kilometers away from Morzine, this is the nearest body of water you'll find in the area. And what better way to spend your time here than to go kayaking? You never would've imagined that you'd be doing this sport in Morzine, did you? This only proves that there's more to this town than just skiing. And as you row or paddle your way down the river, don't forget to take in the amazing views around you!

Whether it's just with your phone or a professional-grade camera, this destination is a photographer's goldmine. The snow-covered alps, the beautiful hills, the storybook-like meadows, and even the charming luxury chalets in Morzine too. Every corner you turn to is a postcard-worthy sight.
