Avoid the drizzle of England this festive season and escape into a true winter wonderland for the perfect white Christmas in Morzine. Read on to discover why this tradional Alp town is the perfect location for this festive season, from an enchanted forest to a catered ski chalet.
How many of us, when we picture the perfect Christmas, envision big fluffy flakes swirling down from the sky to cover everything in a soft white blanket? Unfortunately, in England, we’re more likely to see buckets of rain than buckets of the white stuff. So why not escape to Morzine, where a glorious white Christmas is all but guaranteed? Nothing gets the family in the festive spirit more than revelling outside together, building snowmen, star fishing to make snow angels and tobogganing and sledging against the glorious backdrop of the Alps.
From 22nd to 28th December, you’ll be able to watch your little one’s face light up as they meet the big man himself at the Grotto in the Enchanted Forest in nearby Les Gets. Take a guided tour through the magical trail where you’ll be regaled with Christmas themed stories, discover some of Santa’s secrets as revealed by his helper elves and be amazed with other seasonal surprises.
Not to be outdone by neighbouring Les Gets, Morzine itself puts on quite the Christmas spectacular. Celebrations include the dazzling Tourist Office parade, giant light up puppets, neon decorations, flamethrowers, dancers, light shows and fireworks! In the centre of town there are fair ground rides, choirs singing carols, bands and live DJ’s, an open-air ice rink, elf workshops and treasure hunts. For the grownups, there’s plenty of scrumptious vin chaud to keep you lovely and warm. Let's not forget New Year's Eve, where there'll be more fireworks and an unmissable torchlight descent.
