Swiss Sledging Adventures
Our Swiss sledging adventures are perfect activities for all ages – and exclusive to Chamonix All Year! They take place just over the border from Chamonix’s Le Tour ski area so they are ideal as an après-ski activity. Non-skiers can easily join the group by taking the train to the pick-up point at Vallorcine (free on your tourist guest card). A great way to go sledging and explore the local area, whilst in the Chamonix valley.
Our guide will collect you and transport you to the sledging track, where you’ll ride down the speedy 3km track as many times as you want. Afterwards, gather around an open fire to enjoy refreshments, before being dropped back at your Chamonix accommodation by our guide’s door-to-door service.
Choose from our ‘apéro’ option with warming drinks and biscuits around the fire, or the open-air fondue option to end the activity with a hearty meal.
Sledging in Switzerland & ‘Apéro’
After everyone has had their fill of sledging fun, gather around the open fire for an apéritif glass of mulled wine or hot chocolate, and enjoy some homemade festive biscuits or cake.
Sledging & open-air fondue
After you’ve enjoyed the sledging run, you’ll have earned a hearty cheese fondue. Our guide will make sure you’re equipped with the longest forks you’ve ever seen and a traditional apron with pockets for your bread, to use in the huge fondue pot which hangs over the open fire. Enjoy the delicious three-cheese fondue mix, mulled wine or hot chocolate, great company and beautiful surroundings.
