But what is there to see and do in Samoëns over summer?

Wide range of activities

Although skiing is not on the cards, there is still a wide range of summer activities to enjoy. Hiking is a good example, as the Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval nature reserve and Cirque du Fer-à-Cheval mountain range are close by. There are also activities such as horse riding, tennis, quad biking and white water rafting available to try here over summer.

Packed schedule of entertainment in local villages

Samoëns is well-known for being one of the prettiest villages in all of France. In summer, this is particularly true as all its colourful flowers and plants come into bloom. It is also known for having a vibrant local entertainment scene. From live music to local festivals, there is normally something going on regularly here in summer. The same is also true for other villages in Le Grand Massif (such as Flaine or Morillon). This means summer visitors will never get bored and will always have something to stay entertained with.

Plenty of day trips further afield

While the local villages have lots to offer, you might want to take full advantage of the better weather to venture further afield. Luckily, Samoëns has many fabulous French treasures on its doorstep. Annecy is a modern city and is known as the ‘Venice of France’, as it is built next to a lake. There is also Evian (famous for its spring water) and Yvoire (a charming medieval village next to Lake Geneva) to enjoy.
