There’s more to Chamonix than skiing, snowboarding and exploring the Alps. Not all kids enjoy the challenges that the slopes provide so it’s important that you know what your holiday destination provides before you go! This picturesque area is perfect for animal lovers. Bring your children to Chamonix for a once-in-a-lifetime experience with amazing animals such as llamas, deer and huskies. |
Merlet Animal Park
Take an unforgettable trip to Les Houches for an authentic experience with the mountain’s wildlife. Enjoy the incredible view of Mont Blanc while your children witness more than 80 animals in their natural habitat in this well-established animal park. There are no fences or enclosures to contain the animals; the chamois, llamas, mouflon, and deer are free to roam in the spacious landscape. Open all summer, this affordable day trip features more than meets the eye: the staff will inspire your children with information about the environment, the antler cycle and the history of the animal park, which was created around the time of the Disney movie Bambi.
Meet St Bernard Dogs
Dog lovers, rejoice! L’Elevage de Saint-Bernard in Servoz is home to 20 lovely, lolloping St Bernard’s dogs who adore spending time with the human friends who come to visit them in their kennels. Here your little ones can pet the animals, take photos, buy souvenirs and even learn a thing or two about this magnificent mountain breed. You don’t need to book – just show up and enjoy an hour with the animals. All ticket sales contribute to the upkeep of the kennels and food for the dogs.
If you’re looking for something with more exhilaration, huskies can pull you through the Chamonix Valley. These perfectly bred dogs love transporting people through the mountains. The modern technology allows the sleds to be very light and strong, easily gliding over the snow. This activity is perfect for young children as they can experience a new way of travelling without the dogs going too fast. Other options include learning to mush your own team of dogs. Wrap up warm because during these winter months, the slopes are cold!
