Family activities in Verbier

Vacationers who visit during the summer have plenty of options for outdoor adventures. You can try canyoning, cycling, hiking, mountain biking, Via Ferrata climbing and more.
Skiing is the main draw for vacationers who arrive during the winter. Verbier is one of the ski resorts that make up the Four Valleys ski area, which offers some of the best skiing in the alps. With 35 blue pistes, 39 red pistes, 14 black pistes, a snowpark, cross-country ski trails and off-piste opportunities, there’s plenty that skiing enthusiasts can look forward to.
The little ones aren’t left out, given the variety of ski schools in the area offering classes and activities that cater to children as young as three. The Ecole Suisse de ski Verbier has a kids club for children between the age of three to five years old. At Verbier Ski School, there are small group classes for kids between three to five years, six to twelve years old, as well as teenagers.
Give tobogganing a go—although we must warn that it isn’t for the faint-hearted. The Piste de luge Savoleyres-La Tzoumaz is one of the longest runs in the French-speaking area of Switzerland, so an adrenaline rush—accompanied by breathtaking views—are guaranteed. The descent takes about 20 minutes, and there will be tumbles along the way. Do check in with your Verbier ski chalet concierge for further information and safety recommendations, particularly if you’re bringing children along.
Activities away from the slopes include skating at the Plaine des Ecluses, an artificial eco-friendly skating rink. The venue also hosts Ice Disco events in the evenings during the peak season.

Activities and points of interest in Verbier

Snowshoeing is also a great alternative. It offers a gentle workout, and you’ll easily feel at one with nature as you explore the mountains and forests, and take in the postcard-perfect winter landscape. Your Verbier ski chalet concierge can help with equipment rental and arranging for guided snowshoe excursions.
Visiting Mont Fort—the highest peak in the Four Valleys area—is a must. From Verbier, you’ll take a series of cable car rides to arrive at the summit. And from here, you’ll enjoy uninterrupted vistas in every direction, with views out to more than 110 peaks. The viewing terrace at the summit is an excellent vantage point, as is the Igloo du Mont-Fort restaurant.
There’s plenty of fun to be had, even on bad weather days. The Verbier Sports Centre is equipped with excellent indoor climbing facilities, so you can try out over 60 climbing routes. If you’re new to the sport, you can also sign up for a climbing course. Vertic-Halle, a rock climbing gym, is a great option for children. Children aged 12 and above can try out bouldering, and there’s also a separate section catering to younger children.

Verbier’s restaurants, cafes & bars

Verbier’s wide-ranging dining scene offers plenty of options, whether you’re looking to dine in town or on the slopes. Certain restaurants are seasonal, and popular venues can get busy during the peak season—so it’s best to ask your Verbier ski chalet concierge to make a reservation if you’re dining out.
Our recommendations for slope-side dining include Le Dahu. The views are fantastic, as are dishes like the Pizza Dahu and rotisserie chicken. For some of the best rosti in Verbier, head to Carrefour Restaurant. Dining at La Marlénaz feels like a real treat: the restaurant is set in a stunning location, and boasts cosy, wood-dominated interiors.
If you’re dining out in the town centre, La Grange is a great option. The highlights here include seafood dishes like tuna tataki and scallops with citrus fruits, as well as an extensive wine selection. We also like L’Ecurie for its inviting setting and consistently good and hearty fare.
Verbier boasts one of the liveliest après-ski scenes in the Swiss Alps. You can round off the evening at a bar, pub or disco—if you’re in the mood for dancing. Enjoy cocktails at the elegant Le Rouge, join in a themed party at Pub Mont Fort or dance away to live music at Farinet.
Self-catering at your Verbier ski chalet is convenient, so it’s a great option for days when you feel like staying in. You’ll have access to a fully equipped kitchen, and plenty of stores in the town centre to shop at, including supermarkets, breweries, cheese shops, and butchery and meat shops. Your Verbier ski chalet concierge can arrange for private dining experiences too—so you can enjoy a restaurant experience right at your dining table, without having to lift a single finger.
