Enjoy getting active in Leysin
The perfect spot for a family getaway, the resort is buzzing all year round meaning everyone can have fun doing exciting activities together. The village is just a stone’s throw from the Leysin Sport Hotel, and offers plenty of great things to do: in winter, head to the Snow Park to rub shoulders with the freestylers or enjoy a family tobogganing session. 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. Big thrills guaranteed for the young and young at heart!
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.
