Short Family Walks in Courchevel

featured in Hiking & walking routes Updated

Courchevel has a range of walks, hikes and trails that are suitable for families and younger children, on the maps some of these are labelled as being "very easy" making them great for everyone. With the beautiful mountain views, interesting terrain and alpine scenery, a family walk can be fun for everyone.

The walks suggested in the gentle walks section are also great for families with young children, and with many of the trails within walking distance, or a short bus journey, from the centre of the resort you can head for a stroll around any number of them.

It's always worth noting that for younger children back packs with water and snacks are a great idea as some of the routes may have no refreshment stops during the walk.
