Winter 'taster' weeks

This Holiday in a nutshell
  • learn with like-minded Inntravel guests at the local ski school
  • our most popular Swiss hotel, complete with a pool
  • beautiful scenery
  • many other activities available to try

The friendliness of fellow skiers, the feeling of being close to nature, and the chance to fully take in your surroundings make cross-country skiing a very enjoyable activity. What’s more, it’s suitable for almost anyone, regardless of age! It doesn’t normally take long to master the gliding stride, and steering is easy as you ski in ‘tramlines’ cut daily by a special machine.

Our Try It Out Weeks for complete beginners are a perfect introduction to cross-country skiing. Lessons and equipment hire are included, and you learn in the company of like-minded Inntravel guests during the quietest weeks of the season, ensuring the atmosphere is very relaxed and informal. After learning the basic techniques, you will be gently tutored to improve your skills.

If you’re slightly apprehensive about trying cross-country skiing for the first time, the fact that the lessons are with one of the hotel’s own instructors should help to put you at ease.

In picture-book Kandersteg within the Bernese Oberland, you can learn amid scenery on the grandest scale. The Kander Valley is ranked in Switzerland’s top three for its cross-country skiing, with trails crisscrossing the meadows surrounding the village, plus additional easy routes high in the mountains above. You can also try your hand at a wide range of other winter activities between lessons if you so wish – winter walking, snowshoeing, downhill skiing, ice-skating, curling, sleigh rides...the list is almost endless! You stay at the justifiably popular Belle Epoque Hotel Victoria, a wonderful blend of quality, comfort and homely charm, with the added bonus of direct access to the trails.
