Morzine is not all about mountain biking. Nor is it all about walking trails off into the hills. The area is teeming with things to see and do with a family, or even as a down day if you are here primarily for the biking.

What's on offer?

First consider the Ported du Soleil offers a Multi Pass system, which is only 8e per day for access to all the regions leisure facilities, discounts on activities and lift access (not with a bike however).

First cab off the rank is the pool complex down by the picturesque Dereche river walk. Though the boys have to wear Speedos, it's a great place to relax with an Olympic sized lap pool, and kids playing area complete with several slides.

Just up from the pool is a meticulously maintained clay tennis court complex, where you can put on your best Sharapova impressions or slide like Rafa.

Make your way up to Lake Montriond for one of the most relaxing (depending on your proximity to the kids area) lake experiences possible, breath taking views of waterfalls and mountains whilst you rent a paddle board or canoe and venture out onto the lake. A sectioned off area of the lake is kept for kids to play in, safe in shallow water. Les Gets just 5 minutes drive from Morzine also has a cracking lake to relax by.

The Hills in Morzine and Switzerland

For a more action packed activity take a short walk to the base of Nyon's waterfalls for Canyoning, where a guide will send you from varying heights of rock ledges into natural plunge pools.

White water rafting or hydro speeding is a very popular down day out, with moderate rapids of differing levels taking you down toward Lake Geneva, starting a short 20 minute drive from Morzine.

Skateboarding in the Bowl down in Morzine

It is rewarding taking your time around the speciality cheese, charcuterie and honey shops of Morzine, there is some really unique produce on offer, much of it made in town. There is a market on every Wednesday morning, in the centre of town in front of Carrefour supermarche.

For those that partake, did you know Avoriaz has a brilliant, long 9 hole golf course and Les Gets a very challenging 18 hole? Golf can even be made the focus of a holiday here, with several world class courses in and around Evian and Geneva.

It is worth having your own transport here if you are with the family. Within 1 hour you can be dropping your jaws at the base of Mont Blanc in Chamonix, driving a boat around Lake Annecy (all you need is a driving license!), or wandering the medieval gardens and old town of Yvoire.

Latest mountain biking News and Events

The mountain bike trails of Le Pleney in Morzine are world famous and for very good reason. This little hill with 600 metres of elevation holds some of the most technical, steep, rooty, flat out tracks you can find anywhere in Europe, if not in the world. 

So I guess the first question is, who is Fergus Ryan? I am 25 years old and I am the marketing manager for MTB Beds. I have been racing since I was 16, starting in Downhill before turning my focus to enduro 2 years ago. I love all things two-wheeled and pushing my limits both physically and mentally when it comes to racing.


A buzzing ski resort packed full of restaurants, bars and alpine culture, Morzine's restaurant scene was once a fairly drab affair in Summer, owners preferring to take the time off or open softly with a minimal menu and hours. Not so now with Summer offering new opportunities, new ingredients, new menus and new, sunny terraces breathing new life into the town. This is driven by the young generation of Morzinoise and British owners who are ready to move with the times.
