The family holidays are a special moment in the year: the opportunity to be in a different context of everyday life and to share moments of joy together. In Megeve, each family must leave with their heads filled with beautiful memories. If Megeve holds the national label "Famille Plus" it is because the station brings true qualities of services to the families: from the welcome to the departure, while passing by the animations!
Project your family in Megeve during your future winter holidays through this article!
In the footsteps of Santa Claus ...

The sledge run La Princesse
We talked about it a few weeks ago in our article "What's up in Megeve?" , the resort has invested in a new toboggan track more than 3 km long.
Totally new on the resort, the track opens this season for the pleasure of the youngest and the greatest!
This fun track, located mainly in the forest, is in the area of La Princesse, hence its name!
We have a little challenge for you: hit the track disguised as a princess!
For the bravest, post it on social networks with the hashtag #alpsliving!
For the little ones, two new play areas are also to discover this season: "Lutins des neiges, Le village" Rochebrune side and "Lutins des neiges La Piste", Mont d'Arbois side.
Discovering the animals of the mountain
Go with your little ones to discover the animals of the mountain and discover in a fun way who are these animals, their particularities but also approach them closely. The perfect opportunity for a funny family photo shoot!
Visit of the reindeer farm and the sheepfold:
Different formulas are available to discover the breeding at its convenience. Our advice? The formula "dinner", probably the most atypical where you will have the opportunity to visit the breeding at first and then enjoy a good meal Savoyard under the yurt.
Night outings in sled dogs:
Equipped with headlamps you can learn to drive your sled or fully enjoy the ride by letting you drive! After the exit, worthy of the exploration of the North Pole you will have the opportunity to participate in the care given to dogs before enjoying a hot drink served in the tent.
An original and atypical adventure that your children are not ready to forget!
The outside rink
So typical of the winter, find the ice rink in the center of Megeve to enjoy the beauty and the warm atmosphere of the city center while spending a friendly time with family.
The rink is suitable for all tastes and all ages. Your little ones will have playful spaces adapted, or they will be able to accompany you thanks to their chairs available for rent.
The ice rink is open from the age of 24 months!
The older ones will appreciate the hockey animations. They are scheduled every Tuesday from 18:15 during the French school holidays.

Megeve is made up of several private hamlets, each offering a spectacular environment.
Because of the extent of Megeve, Cimalpes thought it was important to offer a private transport service.
It is with pleasure that we present the new "à la carte" service in Megeve: a privatized shuttle service to access the ski lifts of Mont d'Arbois, Princess, Center or Jaillet (depending on the location of the chalet).
- A morning trip from 8:30 to 10am.
- A trip in the afternoon from 4pm to 6pm.
