Things to do in Courchevel if you are not into skiing

Posted by Categories: Family


Many people opt for France and especially Courchevel when they have to choose a ski resort and the moment they arrive there they remain fascinated with the amazing landscapes unfolding before their eyes. When planning a holiday to another country one of the most essential aspects that need to be taken care of is to look for rental Courchevel and then to check what other activities you can do in this resort if you are not quite into skiing. Check some of the examples below to get a clearer idea.

Go to Aquamotion

This is one of the most popular places in Courchevel and it is great for spending the day inside because the weather does not look good at all or for wearing the children out before going to bed for instance. The place has several areas where everyone can have fun, from the little ones to the older ones. Fun slides, a lazy river, warm pool or even an amazing climbing center, all of these can be found at Aquamotion.

Go on snowshoeing

Another great alternative to skiing is snowshoeing. All you have to do is put on a pair of snow boots, look for places where you can hire snowshoes and then head off into the wild where you can follow the tracks of foxes, hares, deer and other wild animals. It is for sure that the unspoilt white snow and the fact that you are far away from the slopes, in a peaceful and quiet place are going to make you feel like you are in a magical trip or part of a fairytale in the winter wonderland. If the idea of getting lost into the woods scares you though, you should know that you can also opt for guided tours.

Go on ice skating

Le Forum which is located in Courchevel 1850 has a big ice rink that opens its doors each day in the afternoon. What makes this place so great is that even children that are three years old are allowed to go on ice and they will definitely enjoy sitting in those little trolleys available there and being pushed around, not to mention that these trolleys are extremely helpful for wobbly parents as well.

Watch the fireworks

During February, Courchevel is covered in firework shows since this is the period when the International Pyrotechnic Festival happens. Watching fireworks is free, so you can sit on the balcony of your rental and enjoy the view while having a cup of hot chocolate next to your loved ones.

Build a snowman

There is snow all around you in this region, so what better activity for you and your children to enroll into other than building a snowman, making snow angels or having a snow fight. All of these are free, not to mention that the joy that this type of activities bring in is actually priceless.

All in all, these are some great examples of activities you can do in Courchevel, France if you are not a skiing aficionado.
