Since it opened in Avoriaz in 2012, the Aquariaz aquatic centre has added a wonderful water wonderland to an already impressive ski resort.  Centrally located within the village, Aquariaz is easily accessible on foot from any of our Avoriaz ski accommodation.

Great views and activities

Aquariaz has great views across the valley and activities for adults and children alike. Kids can choose between an amazing climbing wall (see the picture below) and the super-fun ‘slidewinder’.

Plunge into a half-pipe from 10 metres up in this thrilling ride that is ideal for the thrillseekers in your party. Sitting in a rubber ring, you will slide up and down the walls of the pipe before coming to a rest back on terra firma.

A space dedicated to younger children, this large paddling pool extends into a colourful area full of slides, geysers and other water-play equipment, including a tipping bucket that dispenses tens of litres at a time.

See how far along the climbing wall you can get before falling into the pool below, or swing on the rope swing that is suspended above the pool. Great fun for kids (and adults) of all ages!

Relaxation Areas for Adults

While the kids are having fun, the adults can relax and float around the lazy river, stopping off in one of the secluded jacuzzis, or sit back and enjoy the spectacular views from the outdoor hot tub, which overlooks the valley below.

This video gives you another look at this amazing feature.
