Summer Activities

Walking
The walks are varied for all abilities from a stroll along Lac Montriond to mountain hiking in the peaks. Walking around the lake offers a series of easy and intermediate walks with tracks leading into the mountains for the more adventurous. St Jean d’Aulps has the added benefit of the ski lifts being open for two days a week throughout the summer for walkers, mountain bikers and picnickers. The apartment itself is at the end of a long walk through Col des Follys and what is, in the winter, the Circuit Roc d'Enfer through the forest. 


Mountain Biking
Suitable for all levels including those enthusiasts who are happy going as fast as they can down seriously steep hills! There are championship level courses from Les Gets and the downhill French Cup and Cyclosportive in June from Morzine. Ski lifts are open during the summer for access to downhill courses. 


Fishing
Get away from it all and leave the crowded fishing from the UK behind. Within ten minutes there are four lakes that you can choose from all in beautiful surroundings where you can pitch yourself against the wild trout/grayling and a species of trout that migrate from Lake Geneva each year. The lakes are Montriond, Jotty, Tavaneuse and Mines d’Or can all can be fished with a permit for around 10 Euros a day. There is also excellent river fishing on the River Dranse. Fishing shops are nearby for tackle hire and extra equipment, guides, permits etc. 

Golf
Anyone fancying a round or two of golf you really are spoilt – you can play at Les Gets where you will find stunning views of the snow-clad Mont Blanc from the 14th Tee, or you can play at Avoriaz overlooking the mountains and valleys. 


Swimming
Two main lakes for outdoor supervised swimming can be found at Lake Montriond and Les Gets. Both offer crystal clear water and are not overcrowded. There are also Olympic outdoor swimming pools with slides at Morzine and Thonon les Bains. This is the perfect way to cool down in the summer. 

 

There is also paragliding and ballooning, undoubtedly one of the best ways to take in the spectacular views of the Alps, white water rafting and kayaking on the River Dranse and horse and pony trekking.
