Family Alpine Activity Holiday In Chamonix
Alpine Trekking & Trails, Mountain Biking, Adventure Parks
The leisurely mountain biking explores different parts of the valley, travelling through thick forests and open Alpine meadows following easy trails and quiet roads. The adventure park at Les Contamines has a range of activities including horse riding and an aerial ropeway with tree slides At the park in Chamonix we try out rope swings, aerial ropeways, and a bungee trampoline. From the chalet, you will take exhilarating day-walks walking along well-maintained paths through pretty fir and larch forest with classic views of Chamonix and the great Alpine peaks. The highlight is the mighty Mer de Glace (sea of ice) - a huge, gleaming-white glacier with crevasses and steep sides.
Listen & Learn
In addition to having fun, there is ample opportunity to sample the local food, such as cheese fondue and even try out your French language skills. On the days in the mountains you will learn about the environment, and search for animal tracks and Alpine plants and discover why the glaciers are getting smaller. There is also the opportunity to have fun with map reading and a treasure hunt on the last day.
