Forming part of the immense Portes du Soleil area which stretches across both France and Switzerland, Morzine is a real stand-out resort.
Morzine combines idyllic tree-lined skiing and a picturesque town with something for everyone, whether you're looking to dance, eat or relax after a hard day's skiing. The Portes du Soleil region is criss-crossed with ski runs to suit every ability, plus there's ample opportunities for exhilarating off-piste adventures.
When you get peckish, take your pick of Morzine's 40+ restaurants which serve up everything from French fine dining to your classic British roast. More focused on the après? Morzine's nightlife is up there with the best.
Morzine is just over an hour from Geneva, making it a great spot for both quick ski weekends and longer trips. Hop on a flight out of the UK in the morning and you can be on the slopes the same afternoon. Keen to get moving? Get in touch over WhatsApp or Messenger and we'll sort you out.
The whole thing was very smooth and effortless and it was really handy to have Packed on whatsapp meaning you could as a question anytime and it was fairly informal too! I will definitely be recommending Packed to others!
They were so helpful and quick to respond. Provided me with a variety of options that were so nice and everything sorted.
Excellent service, very responsive and knowledgeable. Second time using these guys and all has gone well both times. Definitely recommend, see you again next year!
I approached Packed with a work project, searching for a Ski trip for 50 people. Right from the beginning the customer service was super, within a couple of days I had 2 trips that fitted the criteria perfectly. Due to the nature of my job I was unable to progress quickly and was back & forth with questions and requests, but nevertheless Ed Mellor continued to be professional, extremely helpful and patient. There was never a delay is receiving responses to my many emails.
Excellent response times, nice query too small and just made my life so much easier. Thank you!
Great team, great service. Will definitely use again.
I saw an advert on Instagram and thought it’d be worth a shout as I was having a hard time booking a ski trip for myself and 6 mates. From start to finish it was easy messaging through WhatsApp and they found brilliant deals for us. Would happily recommend to anyone thinking of using them. Ed was fantastic and super fast to reply and keep my up to date
Would absolutely recommend. It made booking a group holiday so much easier and completely removes the hassle. will definitely be using again.
I've booked with My Swft for the last 3 years, 4 holidays in total. This year was even better. The new online booking is really simple to be able to share with the group and get people to choose a location. Then everyone managing their own booking makes it even easier for the group leader!
Fantastic service for all aspects of the holiday. Made our leaves easy.
Very good service from the team at MySwft. Very responsive to messages and would highly recommend using them...I certainly will be again!
Overflowing with charm and boasting plenty of places to dine, drink and dance, Morzine is an ideal resort for a group ski trip. Morzine isn't just a winter destination, so the old mountain town has a solid range of shops, restaurants and bars which operate all year round.
Morzine has a well-established nightlife scene to take advantage of during your trip, however you'll also spot some cosier pubs and less rowdy bars if you're more about those low key nights out. The majority of Morzine's bars, clubs and restaurants are on the west side of the river, with a healthy number scattered along Rue du Bourg.
You can easily navigate Morzine on foot (even after a few drinks...), plus it's only a short journey on your skis down from Avoriaz if you're kicking off your après ski there (although the lift is very much recommended if you've been drinking).
The après ski scene in Morzine is one of the liveliest in the French Alps - think ice cold pints, shots of heady local liqueurs and table dancing to some absolute tunes in your salopettes.
Bar Robinson (Robbo's to those in the know) is Morzine's oldest and most famous après spot and it's located right on Rue du Bourg in the heart of the town. Next door is another staple of Morzine's party scene - Dixie Bar, a trio of fun, themed drinking holes all lodged inside one building. Ending your day at the Pleney lifts? Make sure you pop into Le Tremplin to party on their sun soaked terrace.
Those exploring the wider Portes du Soleil area can't skip a drinking session at La Folie Douce in Avoriaz. If you've got your eye on the Lindaret slopes, the bottom of the Ardent ski lift is the location of Happy Hours. It's always buzzing after 4pm, particularly on Wednesdays when they host their crazy 'We Are the après' parties. There's even a free bus back to Morzine if you're a little worse for wear at closing time...
Morzine's status as an all-year round town means it has an established selection of amazing restaurants to try.
Save your cents at the decently priced Bec Jaune, a microbrewery at the top end of Morzine that serves up tasty pulled pork burgers and mac & cheese alongside its craft ales. Around half of their menu is meat-free, too, if you have any veggies in your group.
Prefer the sound of all-you-can-eat fondue? Put La Rotonde on your wish list and get ready to gorge on their huge menu of global delights. La Grange in Morzine's centre is a cosy spot to sample more traditional regional cuisine, while the Hideout Hostel just across the river hosts a different pop up restaurant every season - 2020's was mouthwatering Mexican street food.
Craving a big bowl of cheesy pasta? Authentic Italian Gusto e basta doesn't disappoint with their delicious pizzas, homemade lasagne and decadent desserts. And if you're after a slap-up meal for your final night, L'Atelier is one of the Alps' few Michelin star restaurants.
While the après ski spots above are ideal boozers for beer before the sun goes down, it's likely your group will want to party on well into the small hours.
If that's the case, The Cavern is a definite pitstop on a Morzine night out. It's super central (meaning you'll easily be able to stumble back to your chalet afterwards) and hosts live bands and DJ's every night of the week. Take advantage of Cavern's happy hour from 4pm til 6pm or make it your last stop before bed - it stays open until 2am.
Cafe Chaud is another mainstay on Morzine's clubbing circuit. More modern than The Cavern, it transforms from a classy bar to a full-blown dance club after sunset. Feeling competitive? Challenge your fellow partygoers to a game of darts or beer pong.
Skiing and snowboarding isn't just thirsty work - it also leaves you with a real appetite! Satisfy those hunger pangs at Morzine's myriad mountain eateries, none of which require you to stray too far from the pistes.
If you're planning on skiing on the Prodains runs just outside Avoriaz, spare half an hour or so to grab a bite at Changabang. Despite its name, it's actually an awesome burger joint that's built up a real reputation among fast food fans. If you'd rather take the opportunity to sample some local grub, Chez Nannon (an old alpine farm on the Nyon plateau) serves up sensational Savoyard dishes.
Checking out Les Gets? Quaint chalet-style restaurant La Paika provides panoramic views from their outdoor terrace on the La Turche slopes. If you've got a sweet tooth, don't skip the dessert buffet. More filling French food can also be found at Le Vaffieu at the top of the Folliets chair lift.
When it comes to getting some shut-eye after a long day of skiing, you'll find Morzine accommodation ranges from traditional mountain chalets through to fancy five-star hotels.
Discover Morzine chalets right in the heart of the town which sleep upwards of 20 people and feature luxe extras such as hot tubs and saunas. There's also ample self-catered options like Chalet Mont Calm (which has its own cinema room), plus hotels with all the bells and whistles you'll need if you're travelling in a smaller group.
Skiing for just a couple of days? Morzine's position just 90 minutes from Geneva makes it a popular pick for ski weekends and, thankfully, a handful of the resort's chalets can be booked for shorter breaks.
If you're not sure where to begin, shoot us a message and we'll put together some options.
