Summer in the Alps is hot, spectacular, outdoor, and fun. The mountains provide the most remarkable adventure park for adults and kids alike. The mountains are a perfect place for a summer alpine holiday, whether you’re looking for total relaxation in the fresh air or a little bit of adventure. A perfect retreat for families, groups or couples looking for a short break or a week away.

Getting to the Alps in summer

Most people choose to drive out to the Alps. Morzine/ Les Gets and Alpe d’Huez are approximately 570 miles from Calais and all but the last half an hour is on the finest French motorways. It is usually nine hours once you have filled up with petrol and had a few snack/loo stops for the kids. The tolls cost about 40€ each way.

A quicker option if you don’t mind the grief of contemporary air travel, would be to fly and hire a car. We can organise flights and car hire for you, or can provide information to help you if you wish to book this yourselves.
