Other Sports in the Alps
Watersports are a really big part of the outdoor pursuits community, with sailors, canoeists, rafters, waterskiers and many others forming a sub-community of waterbabies - all united by their love of getting wet. Here in the Alps, there are plenty of opportunities to get out there and enjoy the water, whether you're looking for rushing rapids or luscious lakes. Another thing that unifies watersports enthusiasts is their need for good equipment. Whether it's safety equipment, the latest kayak, or some good quality waterproofing to protect your valuables, it all costs money so it's important to get the best deal you can. Have a look at Aquascene and see what you think!
Chalet holidays in the French Alps are so popular these days, offering a great means of controlling your cost during your holiday with an almost all-inclusive ski vacation. Not only Meribel, but all the resorts across the Alps are full of beautiful chalets, each accommodating small and large groups of skiers for a week at a time. These are some other chalet companies we know in other resorts

The flight and airport transfers are never the highlight of anyone's skiing holiday but, with so many discount flights available to Geneva, it's very likely that your chalet company will encourage you to fly to Geneva Airport. This is not only the closest airport to most of the big French resorts, but also one of the best served in terms of regular flights from the UK. But, of course, this creates a new problem: how do you get from Switzerland to your French resort? This is where airport tranfer companies come in. Most chalet companies will help you find a good transfer company who will provide you with a safe and comfortable transfer by minibus to your chosen resort. However, if your chalet owner prefers not to get involved in this side of things, we will be building a list of airport transfer companies to help you find a safe and easy airport transfer.
