It is known for the endless amounts of winter activities and of course the skiing, making it one of the best ski resorts in the French Alps.

Where is Morzine

Morzine lies within the French Alps and is located around the Portes Du Soleil area. A short flight from London to Geneva followed by a quick 1-2 hour coach journey - I used Skiidy Gonzales which offers optimum views of Switzerland. You’ll have enough time to settle into your hotel - we recommend Hotel Névé, or even start your skiing adventures in the Alps! Not only is the journey fairly short, Morzine is tucked away into the heart of the skiing towns, amid local farms and even nightlife.
