Winter Snow Collection

With a mix of the very best winter walking and cross-country skiing, Headwater are proud to offer a truly exciting selection of experiences. Our cross-country skiing holidays include everything you need to try (or learn) cross-country skiing, while our winter discovery packages let you try out snow shoeing, dog sledding, ice skating and lots of other winter activities too! The winter months are an ideal time to explore the countryside and enjoy the beautiful snowy landscapes on our winter snow holidays.

From the moment you arrive at your destination Headwater will take care of everything. We have hand-picked our favourite hotels in each location, including the ever-popular family run hotel in Venabu. We'll also ensure you get the best experience on the trails whether it's when you're personally led by a Headwater leader on our Cross-Country Skiing in Leutasch and Seefeld holiday or attending the ski school in Geilo.
