The Alps in Winter Escorted Tours

When winter arrives and fresh blankets of crisp snow cover large portions of Europe, a number of summer holiday destinations are deserted, having lost some of their appeal until summer returns. In the towns and villages around the Alps, this could not be more different. Although they are already a summer attraction in their own right, the Alps in winter remain just as delightful, if not more so.

In many areas around the Alps such as in Switzerland and France, special care is taken to ensure that the trains still run safely. Therefore, on our amazing collection of winter holidays in the Alps, we can feature some of the world's finest railway journeys as the landscapes are covered in a dusting of snow. So whether you are tempted by a superb winter adventure on the iconic Glacier Express, would like to climb the snow-covered Jungfrau mountain on the famous Jungfrau Railway, or prefer the idea of visiting Chamonix on the Mont Blanc Express, you will find you excursion is just as vivid, efficient and scenic during the winter.
