Le Pas de l’Aigle
It's almost hard to believe that this now-famous spot was just built back in 2020. Having become one of the best attractions in Morzine, possibly in the entire region of the French Alps
, you'd think that Le Pas de l’Aigle has been around for decades now. This sky bridge offers the most stunning views of the Alps, the kind you'd expect to see on postcards. This place hardly seems real, but if you take a selfie here, your followers will then understand that it is an actual hotspot. It will require a lot of effort to go here, though, so good luck!
Considering that Morzine is a ski town, you probably thought that all there is to find here are snowy mountains and luxury ski chalets
, didn't you? For the most part, this is true, but if you venture beyond the usual hotspots, you might stumble upon some of the enchanting lakes and rivers in the area. Lake Montriond is a perfect example. This is the kind of place you simply have to see during spring or summer. When all the snow has melted away, Lake Montriond offers up the perfect countryside scene that's as idyllic as ever. And as Instagram-worthy as ever too!
