Winter Wonderlands

Grab your coziest Fair Isle woollies, pull on your shearling-lined boots and let us whisk you away to a winter wonderland of snow-capped forests, soaring ski trails, husky-drawn sleds, dazzling blue glaciers and the ethereal dance of the Northern Lights.

Explore the wilderness on a snowmobile safari then relax in the evening (mug of hot, spiced wine in hand) by a blazing log fire in your luxury cabin. After a day on the slopes, toast the good life at a renowned alpine-chic restaurant famed for its palette-pleasing delicacies. From all-action pursuits to foodie hotspots, festivals and Europe’s best Christmas markets, a winter wonderland vacation will leave you feeling re-energized and inspired.

At a Glance

  • Multi-gen and families: Enjoy fresh air and rosy cheeks when you ski some of the world’s most beautiful resorts where your private chalet comes with a chef, butler and driver. Or stay in a teepee where adventurous teens can unleash their inner Bear Grylls and learn how to catch fish in a frozen lake, care for reindeer and chop firewood. Take Dad to see the Aurora Borealis or enchant your grandkids on a reindeer sleigh ride to Santa’s workshop—a winter wonderland vacation will delight snow angels young and old.

  • Culture and cuisine: Food reveals the essence of a place and, particularly in chilly climes, soothes the soul. If you’re anything like us you’ll gladly inhale everything in sight in the name of research, from street food to high end eateries. When you dine with indigenous people you’ll learn about their culture and traditions first-hand. So really, a fluffy brioche donut here, a chubby dumpling there, an extra helping of tartiflette, bresaola or reindeer stew, foraging for the evocatively named cloudberry…it’s all educational, right?

  • Quirky accommodation: From fabulous Belle Époque hotels and luxury chalets in the Alps to tree and ice hotels, log cabins, igloos and teepees, there’s something to suit all tastes in a winter wonderland.

Glacier Express

Gently snake through the Alps as you travel from Zermatt to St. Moritz and soak up the panoramic winter wonderland views from your carriage window. Plug your headphones into an audio guide that reveals interesting facts and tidbits about the villages, valleys, gorges and viaducts as you glide by. An excellent on board buffet service and the spectacular scenery make this slow snow travel at its finest.
