These clubs are a good idea for your kids to meet other children and make new friends, and allows the adults the freedom to go off and try those more daring slopes.


Let your children pretend to be Robin Hood or The Green Arrow by taking them to archery lessons, an activity that can be enjoyed by both adults and children alike. Just make sure they don’t attempt to shoot a bow in your chalets! Val d’Isere offers archery at the Parc des Sports Vallée du Manchet from June until late August. There are a great range of courses available from beginners to experts, so it doesn’t matter if you have never shot a bow before. Children must be 8 years old, and children between 8 and 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
