Winter Sports Holidays
Exciting, energetic, exhilarating and above all, fun. Ramblers Worldwide Holidays offers a number of different holidays that make the most of the snow!
Whether or not you’ve been on a winter holiday before, we have something to offer you. Our holidays are tailored to cater for a broad range of abilities but the expectation will be that most groups will be beginners on cross-country skis or, if more experienced, prefer a more leisurely holiday. The Three Valleys downhill skiing holiday is aimed at those who have had several weeks tuition and experience in recent years. For a new experience, take a look at our new snowshoeing holidays.
Barry Trevis is our in-house bird expert. He researches our birdwatching holidays, leading many of them. He lives in the village where Ramblers Worldwide Holidays office is situated and has been the warden of Lemsford Springs Nature Reserve there for over 30 years. He has birded extensively over seven continents and carries out bird-ringing studies in the UK and abroad. He has a particular interest in watching bird behaviour wherever he goes. Showing birds and wildlife to others gives him added delight.
Our Winter Sports Holidays
Over 200 miles of skiing in six areas - including the Kaunertal Glacier
Wow! We have found a real gem for our new downhill skiing holiday. Access to six fantastic skiing areas, based in a fabulous spa hotel in the Upper Inn Valley – a week’s skiing doesn’t get much better than this.
Pink mountains, tranquil villages, virgin snow and a great hotel.
No previous experience is required for this holiday but you get a good workout on snowshoes! This part of Italy's South Tirol region has great routes and unrivalled views. Our walks may take in views of the Catinaacio, the Rosengarten, and the Sciliar group among others.
Enjoy sparkling winter walking in Fussen and the magical area of Oberammergau and King Ludwig’s castles.
Füssen's attractive location on the edge of the Alps never fails to captivate visitors; formed by imposing peaks and an idyllic lake land area, it lies at an altitude of 800-1,200 meters; the highest town in Bavaria!
A Swiss delight.
Situated high on a mountain plateau in the Bernese Oberland, Kandersteg is very much a traditional Swiss village.Kandersteg offers around 35 miles of marked winter walking paths, many of which are on the plateau and lower slopes. We can walk to the Oeschi forest; enchanting with beautiful snow covered trees.
One week cross-country skiing in Dobbiaco, a premier cross-country skiing resort Altitude: 1250m
NEW Dobbiaco at 1250m is considered to be the premier cross-country skiing resort in continental Europe. It has a huge range of prepared ski tracks to suit beginners or experts and an excellent winter snow and sun record. We include a transport pass that allows travel all over the area including into Austria so we can get the best of the snow.
Experience cross-country skiing and some Austrian Gemütlichkeit
NEW Welcome to a new cross-country skiing holiday that offers either a gentle introduction or more challenging opportunities at Fulpmes in the Austrian Tirol. The town is set in the lovely Stubaital, where the valley ascends up to the glaciated 3000 plus metre peaks that form the border with Italy.
Discover the winter charm of the Andorran Pyrénées
NEW Having enjoyed walking in Andorra so much in the summer months, we have discovered that it is equally spectacular in the winter months. A blanket of white snow transforms the Pyrénées into a winter wonderland.
Stunning winter landscapes, clean fresh air and fantastic light!
In winter the craggy peaks of the Pyrenees are all the more beautiful for a blanket of snow; join us to explore this winter walker’s paradise. We stay in Font Romeu, a charming French resort with a spectacular mountain setting and stunning mountain views into Spain and Andorra.
