On a sunny, mountain terrace, high above the Rhone Valley, the delightful town of Leysin enjoys a mild, healthy climate and is a favourite holiday destination in both summer and winter. In the winter there is excellent skiing up to 2400m. In summer visitors enjoy hiking, mountain biking, mountaineering and paragliding. The resort organises some activities and has negotiated discounted rates for local sports and watersports but has no facilities. Nearby, there ismini-golf, a hammam, disco and helicopter offering sightseeing trips.
