Other Great Outdoors
“Paid for park, with all the local wildlife easy to see. The Marmozets are our favourite. Great place to stroll around with families. Beautiful views across the valley to Mont Blanc. If you don't want a long walk, keep driving as there is nearly always a space at the top! (Summer only)”

Mountain
“walk up the steep path under the Brevant lift - not for the faint hearted (requires a bit of a clamber/scramble at the top - no reopes required). Chill at the top and enjoy a beer at the mid station, before getting the cable car back down.”

“You can ski to Kitsch Inn from Chalet La Friaz! Just make sure you take the piste run down to Bellevue (rather than Prarion). It's a good place for apres drinks and they have live music many times a week.”

“Incredible food, friendly staff and free pool table. It's also family friendly and right next door to Les Gaillands climbing wall and lake.”

Natural Feature
“This is a great place to relax with an unbelievable view of Mont Blanc. There is a fantastic climbing wall for all levels and an acro park in the trees. It is 100% worth the challenge of getting to the end of the black run, step off the platform and hold onto nothing!”

Trail
“A gorge in Servoz with a very well maintained footpath (about 1.3km each way). In summer the water level is natural so can be impressive after rain (and you don't need clear blue skies to enjoy this walk). ”

Restaurant
“The hotel has been run by the same family for generations. Really good French food and a legendary eat all you want dessert buffet. In the summer you get free access to their pool and clay tennis court if you have lunch there - definitely worth doing.”

Apres Ski Bar
“Les Houches has a lot of good places to eat. Book this one. You can ski here but also walk up from Prarion lift so it's a great place for skiers and non-skiers to meet for lunch.”

Point of Interest
“Climb through the trees, fly along zip lines, swing into rope nets and step of the final platform and hope for the best! This is a great spot for all ages, although smaller kids will struggle with the more advanced routes, there is a mini route perfect for 4 year olds and up.”
