Find Adventure-Sport Hotels in the Vaudois Alps
Most Vaudois Alps adventure-sport hotels are in the major ski resorts of Leysin, Villars and Les Diablerets, with a handful of additional properties in the towns of Aigle, Payerne and Rougemont. All surrounded by some of the most extraordinary landscapes in Switzerland, the towns enjoy views of vast jagged peaks rising from the floor of the Rhone Valley on one side, and the gentle scenery of Lake Geneva on the other. This is a setting ripe for exploring on foot, by bike, on skis, or even from a paraglider or helicopter, and the list of adventurous things to do should satisfy even the most hardcore of thrill seekers.
Adventure in the Vaudois Alps
Most adventure-sport hotels in the Vaudois Alps cater primarily for skiers and snowboarders, with many offering ski storage and equipment hire, as well as the ever-coveted ski in/ski out access. But it doesn’t stop there. Many hotels offer guided trekking, cycling and fishing trips, and can help organise once-in-a-lifetime excursions such as heli-skiing or dog-sledding.
Beyond the resorts, you’ll find more opportunities for adventure, regardless of the season. In the winter, try your hand at ice-skating, curling, tobogganing or glacier climbing, or come during the summer months when you can explore the miles of alpine trails which criss-cross the mountain pastures. Summer is ideal for attempting something new like dirt monster biking (a blend of mountain biking and motorcycling) or, if you don’t mind getting wet, try the boardsport of hydrospeed, which involves lying on a small board and floating down a river and propelling yourself with fins attached to your feet.
Whichever adventure takes your fancy, your Vaudois Alps adventure-sport hotel will be a relaxing haven to come back to.
