With summer fast approaching, I have been looking into what must-see events there are in the Alps this summer. The Alps have so much more to offer than just winter sports and snowy mountains. During the summer months, the Alps offer breathtaking and spectacular landscapes with flora and wildlife, as well as the opportunity to try out or to watch a multitude of outdoor sports.
Are you undecided on where and when to take your next luxury summer holiday in the Alps? Looking for summer events in the alps?
Read on to find out what must-see alpine summer events are happening this summer…
The Crankworx World Tour lands in luxury resort of Les Gets on the 20th-24th June 2018. It is the defining celebration of world-class freestyle and free ride mountain biking in the Alps, where ordinary humans perform the extraordinary. This is one of many summer festivals in the Alps and not only offers amazing riding, but also live music and, of course, incredible parties!
Whether you prefer downhill racing, duel and slalom, whip-offs and/or slope style it’s all here in Les Gets area. For more information on the events, schedules and ticketing head to the Crankworx website.
Why not stay in a luxury chalet in Les Gets? We have some great summer chalets to choose from including the luxury Ferme de la Corderie and Ferme de Moudon offered on a self-catered basis and can accommodate up to 14 people!
From the 6th – 9th September 2018 the Omega European Masters will stop in the luxury resort of Crans Montana for the Swiss leg of the professional men’s golf European tour. British golfer Matthew Fitzpatrick won the event last year, and it was his latest victory on tour where he defeated the Australian Scott Hend in a play-off.

Choose from our luxury self-catered chalets such as Chalet Benou, Chalet Eugenie or Chalet Le Torrent to name but a few!

The Verbier Classical Music festival is an outstanding programme of concerts featuring the biggest names in classical music today! Starting on the 19th of July, it offers eighteen days of truly artistic excellence. The event was founded in 1994 and is now considered to be among the major European music festivals.
Year after year, the festival returns to the luxury resort of Verbier, offering an increasingly varied programme and a growing number of concerts.
