Verbier is a fantastic outdoor playground for both adults and children however finding entertainment for toddlers who aren’t skiing yet can sometimes be a bit tricky.
Petit Verbier offer childcare services for children of all ages and looking after the littlest family members is our speciality, so here are some of our top toddler activities in Verbier!
The Park /Playground
Located just between the post office and Hotel Phoenix, there are swings, slides and climbing frames, with the added bonus of snow in the winter so a great spot for snowman building. If you find that you’ve exhausted the possibilities of the Verbier park, then why not head down to Le Châble. Right next to the cable car station is an exciting and adventurous park, for both young and older children, and let’s face it the cable car ride down is exciting in itself!
A great adventure for little ones- Jump on the number 2 bus (Le Hameau) to Les Esserts, and head down to the pond for some fun. Spot the ducks, feed them to their hearts content, and try and befriend the black swan! Remember to pack a bottle of bubbles, as this is a great spot for a bit of bubble catching in the fresh air. Just watch out for any skiers whizzing by!
Sledging at Les Esserts
You can rent sledges at Mountain Air. This is perfect for an afternoon out on a glorious February day! With the sun beaming down, the slopes full of happy holiday skiers, there is nothing better than seeing smiley faces zooming past. Les Esserts is perfectly set up with a designated sledge area, for you to go down as many times as you want. Remember to wear gloves, and goggles as snow does have a tendency to a get everywhere!
Indoor climbing wall
At the sports centre. There is an area with a crash mat for little ones to climb without needing a harness (harness 4chf, shoes 4chf), and is generally a great indoor activity on a whiteout day! Children love the challenge and it gives you a chance to stay in the warm and dry!
This is best for children from around 2.5 years, there are skates that attach to their shoes/snowboots which are more sturdy. The ice skating rink is free for anyone and you can hire skates at Medran sports (opposite) for 5chf per pair. Located in central Verbier it is easy to access, and Chocolaterie de Verbier is nearby for a warm up hot chocolate afterwards.
Ferme du Soleil
Down in Medieres you can find the Farm du Soleil, there is coffee, a small play area and ride on cars, plus animals! What more could you need!? Take the walk down route de Medieres or catch the bus. There is also parking at the farm and a lovely walk and open library nearby on the Route du Soleil.
Indoor play area at Le Dahu
This is the perfect outing to get up the mountain. The journey up gives you the chance to spot the skiers shooting down the M25, and remember to look out for the pros somersaulting over the jumps at La Chaux. Once up there, head to downstairs Dahu to the soft play are and climbing frame that keeps the little ones entertained for hours. Never underestimate how much fun a primary coloured tunnel and slide is!
