Courchevel – Things to do

According to the tourist office, around 25 - 30% of visitors arrive in Courchevel with no intention of skiing or snowboarding. The resort has responded well by offering activities as diverse ice-driving in a Porsche to guided snow-shoe tours along the forest trails.

Sightseeing in Courchevel

Whether you are a non-skier or you simply feel like a change, there are a host of other things to do in Courchevel. Many revolve around seeing the beauty of the mountains from different perspectives. You can take a pleasure flight, or even flying lessons, from the local airport, as well as hang-gliding, paragliding or helicopter flights. For a more tranquil view of the mountains, hot-air ballooning trips are popular, as well as exploring the trails on your own two feet on a snow-shoe tour.

Leisure activities in Courchevel

If you feel like coming in from the cold, then Courchevel has several indoor leisure activities to enjoy. Visitors can go bowling, climbing, ice skating or to the cinema, as well as taking part in gourmet cookery classes or enjoying their hotel pool and spa. Other outdoor leisure activities include sledging, horse-drawn carriage trips or snowmobile rides.
