Around and about

Unlike other mountain resorts Morzine-Avoriaz is easy to get out of in more than one direction, which makes it a great hub from which to visit lots of other gorgeous places. Mountain Mavericks has a list of activities for Summer, Winter and Interseason to make everyone happy while waiting for Mountain Biking (MTB) or the Ski season. Here are some areas and activities all within a two hours drive...


Switzerland’s second most populated city is home to the UN, Red Cross and CERN, with it’s world famous Hadron-collider. There are so many fascinating sites and shops to visit only 1 hour from Mountain Mavericks Morzine Chalets and they all wrap around the stunning Lac Geneve with the famous and beautiful water fountain (highest in the world). This is the perfect day out for people looking to get out of Morzine in the Summer, Winter or Interseason for a great day out.


This absolutely gorgeous medieval French town sits on the lake and is home to a host of stunning boutiques and traditional craft shops. Mountain Mavericks recommend you visit the awe-inspiring glass shop and visit the castle to see where we get inspiration for our Morzine ski chalets decoration.


Yes, it is the home and source of the water brand we’re sure you’ve heard of and you can visit the water museum here, which oddly, even manages to smell of water! Evian is situated on the French side of lake Geneva and is famed for its floral displays making it one of the prettiest and flower-filled towns in France. During Mountain Mavericks Summer golf-weeks a round during your stay is held at the Evian Masters golf course, providing one of the most challenging, yet beautiful courses in France. Contact us for more information on our Morzine Golf Weeks


A mecca for climbers and serious mountain users, Chamonix is a large town at the foot of the beautiful and overwhelming Mont Blanc, which you can take in by heading up the mountain in a lift to a height of 3842m…not for the feint-hearted! Any fear will soon be dissipated when you arrive at the summit where you can enjoy 360 degree views of the French, Swiss and Italian Alps. Like Evian, during our Mountain Mavericks Golf Weeks we shall drive you and your golfmates to the Chamonix course for a round, just remember to bring your camera.


This stunning city sits on a beautiful lake of the same name and has grown around it’s beautiful medieval section, which wraps around an intricate waterway. A boat trip around the lake is a must for everyone who may be interested in local knowledge and history or simply wishes to enjoy the beauty of the area. This is the perfect Morzine day trip for Summer or Winter activities outside of Morzine, and takes about 1 hour 30 mins to drive from Chalet Chambertin
