France's Chamonix Valley, with its spectacular backdrop of Mont Blanc, Europe's highest mountain, is the perfect setting for a family adventure holiday. Based at our comfortable chalet in the village of Argentiere, this superb activity holiday will ensure that your family gets the most out of their week in the Alps. This holiday is designed to involve the whole family, with a fun packed itinerary and the option to finish off the evening with a soak in the hot tub! Adapting the itinerary as necessary, the local guide will escort you on the activities and choose scenic day hikes along famous Alpine trails in the French department of Haute Savoie, close to the border with both Switzerland and Italy. Activities include introductory canyoning, whitewater rafting or ‘hydrospeed' on the River Arve, as well as the exciting high ropes course at the Chamonix Adventure Park. You will also be able to ride Europe's highest cable-car to the breathtaking viewpoint of the Aiguille du Midi, take the Mont Blanc Express train to Vallorcine and stay overnight in a mountain hut. Additional activities available locally include swimming, ice-skating, biking and the summer 'luge'. This is an action-packed week of fun and adventure at the heart of the French Alps.

Suitable for children from 8 years old
Served by several 'low-cost' airlines, the Chamonix Valley has a wealth of adventure options. With our comfortable chalet base and a variety of included activities, this itinerary should appeal to most families with active children. During the week, there is a wide range of activity some of which are offered as optional extras. Safety is our main concern on this kind of trip and the hydrospeed, cnayoning and climbing options are taken by highly qualified instructors. The walks we undertake on this trip are on good and well-marked trails and they are suitable for children provided they are used to walking in the hills. The itinerary is suitable for children aged 8 and above, although children must be aged 12 to do the hydrospeed (children under 8 will raft instead). Also note that height restrictions may apply for certain activities. The guide will arrange the most appropriate activities for the group. The itinerary includes one night in a mountain hut, all other nights are at our chalet in Argentiere.
