Featuring charming, unspoiled villages surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery, and aimed squarely at non-skiers, our ‘discovery holidays’ promise a winter holiday with a difference, with the freedom to explore your surroundings independently, as the mood takes you.
A winter holiday needn’t involve any skiing. Our ‘winter discovery’ holidays are about enjoying your surroundings at a relaxed pace. Spend your days exploring picturesque towns, strolling along scenic footpaths, watching the world go by from a boat or a horse-drawn sleigh, trying your hand at curling, or simply sitting on a café terrace with a mug of steaming coffee and taking in the view. It's entirely up to you…
Set by a lake near Salzburg, Fuschl am See is a great choice if you’d like to spend your time walking and exploring pretty villages, while Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden in Bavaria offers the chance to visit towns of frescoed houses, take a boat across a lake, or even feed wild deer in a forest.

Alternatively, if you’d prefer to get the low-down on Inntravel holidays from someone who has first-hand experience, you can email Phil Wise. Based in California, Phil has taken many trips with us over the years, and will be happy to give you general information about travelling to Europe and the overall Inntravel holiday experience from an American perspective.
Why choose Inntravel for your non-skiing winter holiday
Our winter discovery weeks share three ingredients which are common to all Inntravel holidays: idyllic scenery; charming accommodation offering a friendly welcome; and delicious local cuisine.
Information you can trust
We take great pride in providing comprehensive information about each village and its activities, and we update it constantly. As well as practicalities such as the best hire shop and the ice rink’s opening hours, it includes information about places of interest and local culture, so that you have a rich holiday experience – however you enjoy the snow.
An Inntravel holiday allows you considerable flexibility. We can book flights from your preferred airport, or rail travel all the way from London to the Alps. We can also arrange a room upgrade, ski hire and lessons, or add on a city break to start or end your snow holiday in style. It’s up to you…
Friendly, expert knowledge
If you want a snow holiday with a difference, talk to the friendly experts. Having explored the quiet side of the mountain since 1985, we are well set to help you plan your ultimate holiday away from the crowds. When you call or email us, your questions will be answered by people who have stayed at our hand-picked hotels.
