The varied Portes du Soleil itineraries offer a huge diversity of scenery ranging from ridges to forests and from cols to mountain pastures, with views of Mont Blanc and the Dents du Midi.
More than 40 walking routes criss-cross the domain to the delight of hikers and nature lovers eager to explore the great outdoors and discover the mountain fauna and flora between lakes, waterfalls and torrents.
There are temptations galore, all within a 30-minute walk from Avoriaz, like a visit to a mountain farm, a picnic at the Brochaux waterfall, a dip in Montriond Lake, a snack at Les Lindarets, the goat village, or a chance to taste a glass of Fendant in a mountain village of typical Swiss chalets…
Walkers can also use some of the summer lifts (remember to purchase a lift pass) to travel up or down the mountain and enjoy breathtaking views over Switzerland, the Dents du Midi, the village of Avoriaz, etc.
Seasoned hikers will use their own muscle power to tackle the Portes du Soleil trails in their entirety. Make sure you’re suitably equipped for your hike and remember to prepare ahead. The mountains demand caution in summer as well as winter.
