The problem has always been balancing what each family member wants; what if there were holidays with enough variety to suit all tastes?
Alpine family adventure holidays can provide just such a wide range of activities, with something for every one!
The French Alps make the ideal location for many family adventure holidays because they have the best of almost every summer holiday, even sunbathing! Superb scenery, the cleanest of air, bright sunshine, and a warm welcome.
With typical flair, the French have realised that they have the ingredients for the perfect summer family adventure holiday cocktail. From Mountain Biking to White Water Rafting, Ice Skating to Hang Gliding, Hill Walking to Ice Climbing, they really do seem to have all bases covered. If you are the kind that would prefer to sit by the water, reading a book and taking in the rays, fear not. With fresh water lakes, swimming pools and a marvellous sun record, you can be busy doing nothing whilst the others are hurling them selves down water falls, abseiling into gorges, negotiating rapids, all in the name of another activity: ‘Canyoning’.
Adding to the ease of this holiday experience is the French alpine resorts have some of the very best infrastructure. Their winter hotels and chalets are just as ‘chocolate box’ in the summer as they are during the skis season. The lift system, capable of whisking thousands of skiers up the mountains and above the pistes, can be adapted to carry mountain bikes. Morzine and Les Gets open twenty five lifts in the summer, more than anywhere else, giving access to areas that would have required overnight stays in mountain refuges.
For a family adventure holiday with a difference, look no further than the French Alps.
