Alps Attractions

If your family likes the great outdoors then you are assured a fantastic holiday in the Alps. It’s not really the sort of place to go to if you need to be entertained, but if you are used to entertaining yourself and to having lots of exercise, then you will have a delightful time here.

We have dedicated sections on walking and cycling, as well as some lovely Alpine towns. But here are a few other attractions worthy of mention, some of which offer different kinds of activity!

Adventures Payraud (near Chamonix)

Description: This outdoor adventure company offers all sorts of exciting outdoor activities for all the family. It also has its own ‘Aero Parc’ with challenges high up in the trees for 6 years and over and Le Babyosol – an area specifically designed for younger children from 3 years. We also liked l’Espace Trampoline – a cross between trampolining and bungee.
