Megève is famous for its skiing, stunning mountain views, excellent restaurants and shops but there are many more wonderful activities available in this beautiful resort town. The following are just some of the options for individuals or the whole family that can be enjoyed in Megève.
Reindeer farm visit
Whether it’s Christmas or any other time of the year, be sure to visit the Reindeer Farm and Sheepfold at Domaine Le Coulairon. A herd of Swedish reindeer have lived and thrived in the huge forest park here for ten years. Guests can walk among the reindeer, learn all about their habits and feed them lichen. There is also a sheepfold full of babies and their moms. The babies are very affectionate and love attention so come prepared to cuddle and laugh at their antics.
If you prefer your adventures closer to the ground, check out dog sledding at Mont de Villard Nord. Located in a stunning setting facing Mont Blanc this hamlet gives you the opportunity to enjoy the exhilaration and tranquility of sledding with a pack of friendly dogs across the snowy landscape. The two and a half hour experience is divided into an initial phase where you learn the basics of how to guide the sled followed by a ride with a musher behind high performance dogs.
If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to ride a bobsled, then you should try Sledge 4S. Based at the bottom of the Jaillet gondolas and just a five minute walk from the Palais des Sports, the sled is on rails instead of ice. Being able to accelerate up to 36 km/h, it offers both adults and children an unforgettable experience.
