Summer Alps Holidays

If you enjoy outdoor activities such as walking or cycling, want to keep the children occupied over the summer holidays or are simply bored with beach holidays then you should take a look at what the mountains have to offer the family or friends in the summer.

The main pull to the mountains in the summer is the wide range of sporting activities on offer, from golf, tennin and swimming (pool and open water) to the more energetic activities such as white-water rafting, paragliding, mountain biking and of course hiking and climbing.

However if all you want is some peace and quiet including a little gently activity, the ski lifts operate in the summer months so there is no need to walk uphill in order to enjoy the high alpine pastures which are covered in beautiful flowers and resonate to the sound of cow bells. Anyone capable of a 2 hour stroll  can experience the beauty of this wonderful environment.

The Portes du Soleil, and the Abondance valley in particular, is one of outstanding beauty, encompassing both French & Swiss alpine villages with a nature reserve at it's heart and Europe's largest lake at it's feet.

The Abondance valley offers some of the best walking and mountain biking in the Alps, catering for all levels of experience and it offers much more besides:

Golf, Horse riding, Water sports, White-water rafting, paragliding, tennis, adventure parks and the unique zipwire experience 'The Fantasticable'.

Or why not try a multiactivity holiday, whether for a long weekend or a whole 7 or 14 days we can put a multiactivity program together to suit you. Discount for under 18's . Could be the perfect few days away for the whole family.
