Summer Events in Morzine. What’s on?
Morzine is one of the most popular alpine destinations in the summer months. With a thriving town after the snow melts, the mountains turn into a haven of adventure activities and relaxation, surrounded by outstanding beauty.
The town also attracts a huge array of events, and 2016 is looking like the best year yet for Morzine! Take a look to see Mountain Mavericks picks for events in Morzine this summer.
Firstly we have a little thing called Le Tour de France!
Arguably the toughest competition in sport, Morzine hosts the second last stage of the biggest biking competition in the world. Grueling the steep mountain hills of the Alps, stage 20 of Le Tour de France races from Megeve to Morzine on Saturday 23rd July. For those who are new to Le Tour de France – this could well be the most exciting stage of the competition and might decide who wins the Yellow Jersey. This is an intense final stage including two exhausting climbs up the Col de Joux Plane & Col de Ramaz. The energy will be electric in Morzine.
If you want to see the competition first hand then get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org for beds at L’Aubergade Hotel or in one of Mountain Mavericks Chalets.
