Holidays to Avoriaz
For winter fun in the white powdery snow, or summer joy in the lush rolling landscapes, head to Avoriaz for your lively holiday. Simply hop on a plane for around an hour and a half to Geneva, and then begin your ascent up the mountain to the commune of Morzine, where the resort is located. A holiday to Avoriaz has so much opportunity it can be enjoyed by many different people, all with different holiday wishes in need of fulfilment. From active families and groups who are looking to spend their days doing different activities and sports, to couples who wish to spend some quality time in a breath taking setting, Avoriaz holidays flourish every time. Days can be spent getting cosy by the fire in the winter, or bathing on the terrace in the summer, the choice is yours.
Feeling the mountain air
For many, a holiday outdoors is as much about spending quality time together as it is about activities. Many of the facilities on an Avoriaz holiday allow you to take part in sports and games that you can enjoy together, making the most of your time spent on the mountain. Whether you choose a stay in the winter or the summer there are a range of different things you can get involved in, from the laidback to the daring. You can enjoy a ride on a horse drawn sleigh along the powdery snow, or night sledging 3000 metres downhill in the starlight, the perfect way to welcome you into the festive period at the end of the year. If you’re looking for more of an adrenaline rush, then try free fall parachuting from a helicopter, an act that is guaranteed to get your heart racing as you plunge towards the snowy surface of the mountain.
If you’d prefer your Avoriaz holiday to be more about sun light hours than snow fall then the summer presents the opportunity to hike, dive in the lake, have a go at archery and tennis and even explore the area on a quad bike. One of the best views of the beautiful Portes du Soleil ski area has got to be from a hot air balloon, the perfect way to romance a partner or treat children and friends to something special.
