Winter Activities

The Alps are at their most impressive and magical in the winter. Of course most people come to the mountains to ski and snowboard, but there are also many other ways to enjoy and explore the beautiful mountains, valleys and villages of the Alps.

Winter holidays offer endless activities for everyone. Cable cars, gondolas and chairlifts accept non skiers, taking you to the heart of the frozen, icy world of the high mountains. Why not try snowshoeing, horse riding, dog sledding, paragliding and any number of exciting alpine activities available. You could just take a cable car ride up the mountain to enjoy a leisurely lunch on the sunny terrace of a traditional mountain restaurant. Many ski resorts also have natural thermal pools and spas so you can relax and pamper yourself; it’s not all about battling the cold!
