Enjoying Verbier Without the Skis: Off-Piste Activities for the Non-Skiers


If skiing isn’t really your thing, or you’d like to experience the wonders of Verbier whilst your family enjoys the slopes, you shouldn’t have to miss out on a trip to the beautiful ski resort in 2019. It’s not always ski season in Verbier, but there are plenty of activities for the warmer spring and summer months that don’t involve the skis! If you do have keen skiers in your party, perhaps you can find a compromise and all try something new? Or perhaps find a new, exhilarating adventure all of your own…

Snowy Tree Lined Path

No matter your itinerary, let our Verbier luxury ski chalets be the perfect base for your trip. With many of our luxury holiday and seasonal chalet rentals based in the heart of Verbier, you are never too far away from the slopes, restaurants or resorts; everything is quite literally on your doorstep. So whether you don the skis or opt for a new, off-piste activity, be sure to make the most out of your 2019 luxury holiday to Verbier.

Mountain Biking

Saddling up in the mountains is dependent on the season, but mountain biking in Verbier is a great way to explore the scenic area in the warmer months once the snow has finally melted away. With routes for riders of all levels, Verbier can offer something different to everyone, whilst always offering stunning views to all.

Helicopter Excursion

Looking for the ultimate luxury experience? Explore the mountains from the skies with a helicopter sightseeing excursion over the slopes and valleys for views like no other. Flights can last for up to an hour, depending on your desired route, and you can even stop for a lunch break to maximise your trip! This is the perfect opportunity to share a once in a lifetime opportunity with your friends and family and to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Local Wine Tasting

Switzerland has its very own delicious wines that aren’t often given the credit they deserve! So why not join a local wine tasting experience like no other? In the early evening, a car will transport you to the quaint local village of Saillon where you can visit an ancient cave for a guided wine tasting tour with the local winemaker. This is a great way to learn about the whole process of winemaking and can make for a completely unforgettable experience.

Guided Hikes

If you fancy leaving our luxury ski chalets for the day, wrap up and boot up for some off-piste hiking on the mountainside. There are a number of routes available, perfect for beginners to advanced hikers. Take a guided tour through the valleys studded with snow-capped trees for a stunningly picturesque experience visiting the lakes, caves and local architecture.

Although not your usual activity, if you want an adrenaline rush whilst taking in the stunning panoramic views of the Four Valleys, then paragliding in Verbier could be for you. This experience is available all year round. Provided it is a fine day, you will be able to experience breathtaking scenes whatever the time of year you opt to take flight.

Fortunately, you don’t need to be an experienced paraglider pilot to soar through the sky as there are instructors available for tandem trips – you can just sit back and enjoy the view, whilst the work is done for you!

Dining Alfresco: This is great for the warmer months, but less so during peak ski season! There is a wonderful array of restaurants available to you during your stay, alfresco or otherwise.
