Exceptional sites in the heart of Morzine

Benches and tables are dotted along the river’s edge, great for a picnic or to relax. - Here’s a good thought: if you fancy a refreshing dip, the park offers a swimming pool complex with several pools (indoor and outdoor), three saunas, and two steam rooms !

Did you know ?Wildlife and nature are among Morzine's main concerns. In September 2021, the resort was awarded with the "Flocon Vert" label for its environmentally responsible actions. The work carried out by the town hall and the Morzine-Avoriaz and Avoriaz 1800 Tourist Offices has been carried out with the aim of moving towards more responsible and greener tourism by carrying out federative projects!
To protect birds, all the ski lift cables have been fitted with visualizers every 5 metres or so to avoid collisions, and there are also two protected areas for the Black Grouse, the most emblematic bird in the Alps.
Furthermore, in collaboration with the ONF, each cut of wood carried out on the ski area is counted so that trees are replanted in areas of the Chablais that need it with local species such as spruces, firs and larches.
A campaign to raise awareness of the importance of environmental protection in the ski area has also been put in place.
