What kind of activities does Leysin offer?
Leysin is a vibrant resort that offers a wide range of fun and unique activities, making it the perfect choice for a family holiday. Les Fleurettes chalet is located right in the heart of the village, where you’ll find plenty to do all year round: in winter, head to the Snow Park to rub shoulders with the freestylers, or if you want to try something totally unique make a beeline for the toboggan run. The Tobogganing Park is a one-of-a-kind attraction, created by Olympic medallist and World Bobsleigh Champion Silvio Giobellina, which sends you hurtling down a dozen snow tubing pistes sitting on an inflatable tube. Looking for some big thrills? Look no further!
If skiing, hiking and good food are more your kind of thing, head to the peak of the Berneuse (2048m), where you’ll be able to discover one of French-speaking Switzerland’s truly unique addresses: le Kuklos. This high-altitude panoramic restaurant boasts breathtaking views over Lake Geneva and the Alps. Spend 1½ hours drinking in the ever-changing 360° landscape, admiring Mont Blanc, the Dents du Midi and numerous other Alpine peaks.
