Lakes & Mountains Holidays

Lakes & mountains holidays by train - Europe, the Alps and further afield

Come summer or winter our lakes and mountains holidays have an adventure suitable for everyone. Cinnamon and spices from the Christmas markets mix with crisp mountain air on our Alpine Christmas holidays and in the summer the shores of Lake Garda make a beautiful setting from which to explore the lakes and mountains of the Alps.

Our lakes and mountains holidays combine the best of the great outdoors with high living. If you can imagine yourself sipping coffee in the sun next to Lake Geneva, or stumbling across a glacial tarn on a winter's day, then you might enjoy our selection of lakes and mountains holidays. Unlike some outdoors holidays our itineraries are suitable for everyone, prizing gentle exertion over blood pumping, adrenaline-fuelled climbing expeditions. With hotels in the best lakes and mountains locations, you may be tempted to stay in the bar and gaze out of the window.
