August’s photo of the month (06 October 2017)

Norman Price, this month’s winner of a £200 Inntravel voucher, captured the essence of a Slow Moment perfectly – the reflection in the shiny French horn is not something you’d spot if you carried on past without stopping. If you have a Slow Moment to share, there’s still time to enter; the competition closes on 31 October 2017.


July's photo of the month (10 August 2017)

As our judge, Val Corbett, says, this month's winning photo "has a quality that spurs one’s imagination...I wanted to follow the man down this simple cobbled street and see where the flowers were being taken, what his story was." Browse the gallery to see July's other shortlisted photos, or why not enter the competition yourself?


June's photo of the month (14 July 2017)

Once again, this month's winning photo was taken in Italy, this time on the Amalfi Coast by Scott Hatch, whose eye was drawn to this colourful grocery while walking. Why not enter your own image to the competition for the chance to win an Inntravel voucher or even a trip to Catalonia? 


Three new snow holidays for winter 2017/2018 (04 July 2017)

We have three new holidays for the coming winter: the high-quality Berghotel Rehlegg, a spa hotel in Germany's Berchtesgaden National Park, which makes an ideal choice for non-skiers; the charming Hotel Privata in a village between two lakes in eastern Switzerland, where there is fantastic winter walking and cross-country skiing; and a special winter walking week at the Hotel Ylläshumina in Lapland.


New holiday introduced in southernmost Spain (21 June 2017)

We are pleased to introduce a new walking holiday on the Costa de la Luz for autumn, winter and spring. Besides long, sandy beaches, views towards the mountains of Morocco and a fascinating fusion of Spanish and North African cultures, the region is a haven for birds, dolphins and whales.


May's photo of the month (15 June 2017)

May's winning photo in our Slow Moments competition was this image taken by Gaz Williams in the Italian city of Bologna, where the card players and artist sitting in front of the timeless building epitomise Slow. The competition runs until the end of October, so there's still plenty of time to enter.


April's photo of the month (16 May 2017)

The first monthly winner of this year's Slow Moments competition is this photo of a shepherd and his flock, whom Scott Hatch encountered when walking in southern Spain one drizzly morning. You can view other entries in our gallery, or why not enter the competition yourself?


2017 photography competition launched (02 April 2017)

We are now accepting entries for our Slow Moments Competition. Between April and October the Photo of the Month will win a £200 Inntravel voucher, and all seven monthly winners will be entered into the final to win a six-night photographic assignment in Catalonia, Spain, based on our touring holiday in the region. To enter, send us your photo of a Slow Moment accompanied by up to 40 words.


Collection of journeys in SlowMotion expanded for 2017 (09 December 2016)

SlowMotion, our collection of touring holidays by car, train and/or boat, was launched twelve months ago. For 2017, we are delighted to expand our selection to include journeys by car in fjord Norway as well as in Catalonia and Emilia-Romagna, the latter two of which are both great for foodies; and journeys by rail through the Swiss Alps and linking great Italian cities.


New walking holidays launched for 2017 (08 December 2016)

Our new walking holidays cater for all levels. At the lower end of the scale, we are pleased to introduce holidays in Corsica, the Côte d'Azur and Dorset, while our new holidays in Bavaria and Italy's Cottian Alps will reward keen walkers with thrilling routes and far-reaching views.


Two new cycling holidays introduced (08 December 2016)

For 2017, we have two new cycling holidays: a journey alongside rivers and lakes, from the art city of Mantova into the very heart of Verona; and a discovery of Penedès, Spain's 'Cava country', with plenty of time for wine tastings as you pedal through the vineyards.


Three Norwegian holidays introduced for winter 2016/17 (14 July 2016)

For this coming winter, we are pleased to introduce three new holidays to Norway: a welcoming hotel from whose door beginners and intermediates can enjoy cross-country skiing on a plateau overlooking the Rondane National Park; breaks to the island of Senja, where you may spot whales and the Northern Lights; and a thrilling journey between three Arctic islands on the Hurtigruten coastal steamer.


SlowMotion: a new brochure for the new year (02 January 2016)

We are delighted to introduce SlowMotion, a new collection of adventures amid the most beautiful corners of Europe and Morocco. They share many of the hallmarks of our other holidays – you travel independently, staying in hand-picked accommodation of character while using our detailed notes to explore and get to know the area – but you journey from one enchanting location to the next by train, boat and/or car for a very relaxing and memorable holiday.


New walking holidays introduced for 2016 (31 December 2015)

Our new walking holidays appeal to a variety of tastes. There's coastal walking on the Greek island of Cephalonia, or great mountain routes between the Eiger and Matterhorn and in Umbria in central Italy. Wine lovers and foodies, meanwhile, will like our holidays in Alsace and the Black Forest. Last but not least, we have another new holiday in the Harz Mountains, the spiritual heart of Germany.


2016 cycling brochure features two new holidays (30 December 2015)

In Italy, embark on a gentle exploration of the quiet side of Tuscany or, in Germany, circumnavigate the intriguing island of Rügen. As well as these two new additions, we are pleased to introduce a holiday in north-east France combining walking and cycling amid the fairy-tale scenery of Alsace.


Inntravel ranked second in Which?'s survey of holiday companies (10 January 2014)

Which?’s 2013 survey of holiday companies has been published, and Inntravel has been ranked second in the list of holiday companies, with an impressive customer score of 89% ensuring we maintained this position for a second year in a row. We were in the top-but-one spot amongst over 40 familiar holiday companies and achieved Which? Recommended Provider status. Naturally, we are delighted to rank so highly in such a widely respected survey, but we can assure you that we won’t be resting on our laurels, and will continue to work hard on providing the best possible holidays and delivering the highest standards of customer service.


Inntravel named in top 3 at Telegraph Travel Awards (28 November 2013)

We were delighted to be named joint runner-up in the 'Best Tour Operator' category at the Telegraph Travel Awards 2013. This, along with being named Best Short Break Operator at the Guardian & Observer Travel Awards 2013 and being ranked second in Which?'s 2013 survey of holiday companies, is a great endorsement of our holidays, not least because all three accolades are based on public votes. We can assure you that we won't be resting on our laurels, and will continue to work hard on providing the best possible holidays and delivering the highest standards of customer service.


Inntravel website given a new look (09 October 2013)

We hope you like the new look and the improved menus that help you navigate around the site more easily. We have also introduced a shortlist facility so that you can keep track of the holidays you are interested in as you browse the site and narrow down your choices. There is a brand new travel choices section, too, which focuses on rail travel in particular: why taking the train is such a great alternative to flying or driving and what to expect on the journey.


Our inspiration page just got better (11 March 2013)

To make it easier for you to find ideas for your next holiday, we have expanded the Inspiration section of our website. You can now browse by month – where you will find suggestions such as catching the almond blossom in Spain, music festivals in Italy, the Midnight Sun in Norway, carnival time in Madeira, or the grape harvest in Europe’s vineyard regions – or by theme, be it castles, wildlife, art, food, wine and more, so why not take a look?
