Summer time in Samoens: for families who dare!

Most people who have come across our beautiful little corner of the world tend to know the village of Samoens for its winter sports and access to the extensive Grand Massif ski area.  Rarely do people realise that Samoens is also a fantastic summer location for outdoor adventure activities.

Unlike its more extreme neighbours of Morzine, a magnet for downhill mountain bikers, and Chamonix, where the challenging peaks have been attracting the world’s most hard-core mountaineers for centuries, laidback Samoens offers up a mixture of mountain experiences that are perfect for mums and dads who are looking for activities to suit the whole family, from young kids to daring teenagers needing a safe environment to let loose.

Samoens’ gigantic natural playground and wealth of dependable adventure outfits and mountain guides will provide your ticket to some of your most memorable family holiday excursions, from fun days exploring on mountain bikes to rafting on the valley’s white water rapids and walking the plank on the hair-raising Via Ferrata route.

If this sounds like fun to you then read on for a round-up of our favourite Samoens’ adventure activities to add to your family bucket list:
