Holidays in the snow


A different kind of winter holiday

An Inntravel snow holiday offers a winter experience unlike any other, as it takes you away from the beaten track to explore the spectacular beauty of the quiet side of the mountain.

Here, amid the silence of the snow, all senses are heightened. You see more, feel more and experience more – whether soaking in the views on a scenic hike, immersing yourself in the exhilaration of husky-sledding or relaxing in the cosy comfort of your characterful hotel.

The Alps or northern Europe?

The Alps
Majestic mountain scenery
What can you expect from an Inntravel winter holiday in the Alps? Not crowded slopes and busy restaurants, but picturesque valleys punctuated by silent forests and serene villages, and framed by snowy peaks that climb high into the sky. From our high-quality hotels, you have a wide choice of ways to explore: crunch through the snow on foot or by snowshoes; soar up high by cable car for breathtaking views; and savour delicious Alpine flavours at an authentic inn. Culture is often close at hand, too, whether that’s a trip to an iconic castle, a local artisan or a beautiful city.
Norway & Finland
Where winter reigns supreme
The snow-sure Nordic lands are every bit as spectacular as the Alps, but the scenery here is rugged and untamed – think undulating fells rather than towering peaks. At our traditional Norwegian hotels, cross-country skiing is king, but you can also head out on snowshoes or a dog-sled – it’s a real thrill to whizz through snow-clad forests with only the huskies’ eager panting to break the silence. In Finland, the range of activities feels limitless, from winter walking to reindeer safaris to ice-fishing, complemented at the end of each day by the chance to unwind in a relaxing sauna.

What our customers say

Hotel Wiesenhof, Pertisau, Austria
We had an excellent week in Pertisau at the Wiesenhof. We were blessed with snow on our first two days and some glorious blue skies for the rest of the week; could not have asked for better! The walking was fantastic – fabulous scenery and easy-to-follow routes to some charming mountain inns.
Rebecca, February 2023

Spidsbergseter Hotel, Rondane, Norway
An excellent location and hotel with friendly staff, great food and extensive trails for cross country, hiking and dog sledding.
Dr Harker, February 2023

  • Inntravel holidays take place on the quiet side of the mountain, away from crowded ski scopes. Our holidays focus on the unique experience of being in the Alps or northern Europe over winter, when the blanket of snow that covers the countryside muffles every sound and heightens the senses.
  • Very definitely! Our chosen villages offer a variety of non-skiing activities (take a look at Moso, Pertisau, Weidach, Ramsau, Kandersteg and Sils, for example), and an increasing number of our customers choose not to ski at all during their time away – our winter discovery holidays are designed specifically with non-skiers in mind.
  • Yes. Winter walking, because it’s along specially flattened trails, is exactly like normal walking – you can even wear your normal waterproof walking boots. Snowshoeing doesn’t require any special technique either – you just need to walk with your feet slightly further apart than usual.
  • It varies. Some villages are tiny, secluded places where you can escape the everyday world; others are larger, with various shops and cafés, but all remain charmingly unspoiled – and tranquil.
  • No special clothing is needed for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and winter walking – we recommend the following for all three of these winter activities:
    • Lightweight waterproof jacket
    • Several thin layers for your top half (those made of breathable, fast-wicking fabrics are ideal)
    • Waterproof walking boots (swap these for cross-country shoes when skiing)
    • Winter-weight walking trousers or tracksuit bottoms
    • Knee-length socks
    • Sunglasses
    • Gloves
    • Rucksack
