Winter Activities in the Alps
Spreading from France to Switzerland and Austria, the Alps are Europe's finest and most spectacular mountain range. Our trips are based away from the commercial ski resorts where the pace of life is a little slower and we can simply enjoy quiet valleys for cross-country skiing away from the lifts. Whether you want an impressive variety of mountain scenery, a varied local culture or even some exciting ski marathons, the Alps surely has everything for your next winter holiday.
Temperatures & daylight hours
Daylight hours are similar to the UK, but temperatures vary enormously depending on surroundings and altitude. During December and January, temperatures can be as low as -10ºC yet from February to March, it can be very warm on the snow (+5ºC). We suggest you check our Trip Notes for your chosen destination or our latest snow report.
