Don't your kids get excited by walking to enjoy the scenery? Prove to them that hiking can be fun. Animal parks are an ideal playground to do this!~
The Parc de Merlet, not far from Chamonix, is the perfect place to introduce your kids to hiking. The trail only takes 2 hours, in an amazing setting, so your kids will spend their energy having fun. Over 80 animal species await you for a great family day out as they wander freely in this animal park, open from May to the end of September.~
Antelopes, marmots, llamas, deer, etc. Play a guessing game with your kids to see what animals they can spot all along the way. Your youngest doesn’t want to get out of their pushchair? Don't worry, the fairly level trail means you can push it along easily. Amongst the activities on offer is the “Marmots snacktime” that will definitely delight your kids, whatever their age. It also gives you time for a “sun cream/snack/drink” break!~
Your kids will discover a themed activity on every step of the trail: animals, predators, seasons, etc. Have fun while walking, that's what's important! Dividing the trail up like this encourages your kids to finish the hike with a smile.
