Summer in Samoëns is an outdoor activity paradise, with a vast palette of adventures available to families. Navigating the range of options available can be both intimidating and time consuming. Here at ZigZag, our goal is to make things simpler for you!
1 – A centralised service; more practical and efficient for you
ZigZag unites the best providers in the region, offering a single, central reservation service. Thanks to this collaborative approach, ZigZag can offer all the outdoor activities available in the area, including parapenting, canyoning, via ferrata, rock climbing, white water rafting, kayaking, caving, horse riding, yoga and mountaineering.
Once your client account is created, ZigZag has all the details required to book all the different acitivites you might be interested in doing. Think of all the time and effort you’ll save!
2 – ZigZag has tested and validated each activity on your behalf
The range of activity providers in and around Samoëns is huge, and knowing which provider to choose can be tricky. ZigZag has done all the hard work for you by bringing together the region’s most highly reputed guides and instructors.
There’s no need to waste your precious holiday time deciphering and comparing the offers of non-English speaking providers around the village; ZigZag is a simple, efficient one-stop-shop for summer fun – and we speak fluent English, too!
We’ve selected those who offer the kind of quality service our clients have come to expect from ZigZag, according to these criteria:
Safety : every guide and instructor ZigZag works with holds appropriate certification and qualification to practise professionally in France. This means the professional is fully registered and insured in case of accident or injury. We also choose to work with highly experienced professionals, with years of experience to draw from, so you can rest assured you and your family are in the safest of hands.
Value for Money : Our guides and instructors insist on small group sizes in order to ensure the highest safety standards are met. You won’t find smaller groups anywhere else! These small groups sizes permit each participant to benefit from more individual attention, ensuring you get great value for money.
We also don’t take shortcuts, insisting on offering our clients the fullest experience possible. You may find the same activities offered cheaper elsewhere, but if you look in detail, things might not quite add up. Rafting and canyoning are great examples – just study the length of the itinerary offered and you’ll see where the price different comes from! Don’t be fooled; a cheap rate can mean an inferior service.
Instruction, not just guidance : The level of qualification and experience held by ZigZag’s instructors and guides certifies them to teach as specialist “Educateurs Sportifs”, not just “animateurs”. Each professional has been selected for their ability and enthusiasm for sharing the specialist skills required for their sport, enabling you to develop or perfect your own abilities while in their company. Of course you’ll have a great time, but you can also learn a lot along the way!
Good humoured and friendly : The professionals we choose to work with are selected not just for their fine physiques (!), but also for their fun and friendly attitudes, passion for their sport of choice, and their enthusiasm for working outdoors with people of all ages and origins. We consider these part of an essential skill set that garantees our clients get the best experience possible.
By choosing ZigZag, you’ll optimise your holiday by saving time and energy, while guaranteeing you get the best experience possible for the price you’ve paid.
