Spartan

Ready for a challenge? Sign up for a Spartan – the tough global obstacle race – and combine it with a mountain holiday.

With more than 130 races around the world every year, with signature obstacles including barbed wire, mud, walls, rope and fire, the event in Morzine is as tough (and fun!) as any (probably more!), just with added spectacular scenery and fresh mountain air.

Race days are on Friday 5th, Saturday 6th or Sunday 7th July 2019.

Join us in our centrally-located chalet in the run-up to the event to get acclimatised to the mountain environment and ready for the main event, with optional training events and fitness programmes

Chalet Hubert is our brand new chalet (2018/19) situated in about as central as a spot as you can get. It is just 30 seconds from the main Super Morzine lift and 2 minutes from the Pleney lift.

It has all been completely renovated and is new throughout. Brand new beds, bedding, linen. There are six en-suite twin/double bedrooms, there is underfloor heating, large fireplace and a smart TV.

It is modern, bright and yet still has the charm and the class of a mountain retreat. This chalet, although maintaining the laid-back vibe HOFNAR is famous for, is ran with a slightly higher level of service than our other chalet.

More pics coming soon, follow the progress on FaceBook…

As much as we love winter, we reckon that Morzine during the summer is one of the Alps’ best kept secrets. The town still isn’t quite as busy as the winter, but this is part of its charm – the vibe is laid-back, active and outdoorsy.

Just 1hr and 20 minutes from Geneva, the resort is one of the easiest and quickest to get to from the UK. This historic mining and farming town has avoided the ugly tower blocks that blight many of the French resorts and remains a ‘real’ French town with a market on a Wednesday morning and a year-round population.

There’s way more to do here than when the snow is on the ground. Go hiking, biking, rafting, wild swimming, golf, horse riding, SUP-ing, fishing, climbing, paragliding, canyoning, picnic-ing, tree swinging, go karting, bbq-ing… there really is something for everyone. And with the rise of downhill, enduro and road biking the town gets more and more exciting every year.

We also see some really great events; Spartan, Harley Days and the Tour de France are all often in town. Summer in the Alps – amazing!
