What to do

Canyoning
If your children are a little older (think 8+) and you’re still up for a challenge then have a go at this sport. Natural water slides, rivers and rapids combine along a natural obstacle course to deliver a great family day out. All abilities are catered for so beginners can start on shorter routes to ‘test out the water’ first!

Family adventure parks
Most resorts have great family adventure parks. Verbier boasts no less than four whilst families can enjoy a day at The Forest Fun Park in Zermatt.

Hiking, biking and picnicking
You can easily spend more than one day climbing some challenging terrain either on foot or by bike, work up an appetite to enjoy the great views from the top or stop at a campfire or barbecue location to cook up a feast outdoors. Many locations also offer children's playareas and lake-side sun-bathing opportunities. There are a host of other family activities also on offer through the summer months including horse-riding, fishing and even paragliding.

Shopping and spas
Definitely one for the girls - Verbier is the place to head for shopping and with a number of chalets boasting a Jacuzzi, pool and a spa then you won’t have to travel far for treatments.

Summer festivals
Verbier and Zermatt both host summer festivals. The Zermatt Festival takes place from 30th August – 15th September and the Verbier Festival takes place from 19th July – 4th August. The surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for some spectacular entertainment.
