Other winter activities in Samoens

Samoens has much more than skiing and boarding to offer in the winter.

Try your hand at:

Snowshoe trekking

When the snow lies deep, a pair of snowshoes will take you places where no-one else can go. Snowshoe hire, guides and instruction are available - a great way to get a different perspective on the Alpine landscape.

Dog sledding

Take the reins of a sled driven by a musher. Meet and learn about these hard-working, loyal dogs who will take you through the snow-bound scenery of the Haut Giffre Valley. An experience not to miss.

Ice climbing

Frozen waterfalls can be seen all around Samoens and the Giffre valley and offer amazing opportunities for sampling the wonders of ice climbing. A day with an experienced guide will soon have you mastering the art of climbing these seemingly fragile structures.


So close to its original birthplace of Mieussy, Samoens is a fantastic and understandably popular location to enjoy the aerial thrill of paragliding (locally called parapenting). As a passenger, you will float around on thermals as your skilled pilot steers you over the snowy slopes below.

We are more than happy to help with advice or pre-booking of these activities.



Samoens was awarded the title of Best Small Resort (Europe) by the prestigious Hardy's Skiing and Snowboarding Guide 2009.
