Location

With a vast choice of ways to entertain in a mountain setting, the resort of Les Deux Alpes makes a perfect summer playground for the whole family! This package is designed for active families with preschoolers and kids of up to 7yrs old, who are looking for a unique nature experience in a stunning alpine setting curated by the Bike Hike Tours team. A balanced blend of kid’s summer camp and parents-only courses with plenty of time together too.

* Price $5.280 is per family of 3 people; additional children $490/child

There is no better place to recharge your batteries than the Alps! Mountains are wonderfully soothing in the summer, as the temperatures rise, but maybe not as far up as in the city!

Nature and soul

This trip is also about connecting with nature, finding joy in little things and empowering the relationship we have with our family and friends! During this week, we will swap cars, taxis & subways, for our own feet and bikes. Breathe in the fresh mountain air while taking a walk, a long-distance hike or MTB ride down in the valley. We will also exchange disposable plastic water bottles for fresh water from the natural stream or tap. Living a simple lifestyle, while taking care of yourselves and connecting with your family & friends will be so much easier in a pristine environment like this one! You will have time to slow down and relax, while your little ones will be playing around in nature!

Activities

Each day, there will be a wide array of daily activities for your little youngsters to enjoy the stunning nature of Les2 Alpes while having the utmost fun! All the activities are suitable for preschoolers and kids to up to 7 years old. Under the watchful eye of our guides, they will have the safest and most joyful time. We’ve seen children bond so well when playing in an active environment, so by the end of the week, new friendships will build up and make this experience a fond memory!

Need more ideas for children with boundless energy? At the foot of the slopes, you’ll find plenty of activities where they can let off steam, such as trampolines, summer toboggan, bouncy castle, outside swimming pool and more.

This trip is also about freedom for parents to experience some of that ‘me time’ as well! You can choose from MTB, hiking, trekking activities or simply pull up a sunchair on the terrace and relax. In the end, there is no harm in enjoying yourself while knowing your kids are taken care of! On top of that, you can treat yourself to a wellness experience at the spa.

Everyday yoga classes with our in-house yogi Lindsey

Yoga is the perfect addition to an active holiday for every member of the family! Our philosophy is that yoga is for everyone, even if you’ve never tried. Lindsey specializes in yoga for the active person, focusing on keeping your body strong, stretched and healthy so you can enjoy all of the adventures in Les Deux Alpes. We will offer daily classes for the whole family with special, mini-classes for parents with their little ones!
