Snow-capped mountains, ice blue lakes set within forest clearings and unspoilt panoramic views of sweeping landscapes - our winter holidays in Switzerland are a feast for the senses. Our base here is Kandersteg, a picture-postcard village in the heart of the Bernese Oberland.
As you travel further into the enchanted forests it's easy to believe the folklore of the land. Explore the Blausee forest with its Blue Lake - so called because it changed colour to match the eyes of a beautiful maiden who died there of a broken heart - or be hypnotised by the depths of the Oeschinen Lake that is surrounded by the Alps and ancient woods - winter holidays in Switzerland truly are a magical affair.
Our cross-country skiing holidays in Switzerland are perfect for all abilities; with over 50km of tracked trails available, you can explore the routes that gently wind their way in and out of the enchanting pine and beech forests that surround the village. If you're looking for more of a challenge take the cable car to the neighbouring valleys of Oeschinen and Sunnbuel. You can even enjoy skating and curling on the artificial ice rink in Kandersteg village.
You'll stay in the family-run Hotel Alfa Soleil situated on a picturesque plateau overlooking the pretty and historic village. With panoramic views over the neighbouring UNESCO alpine peaks you'll become thoroughly enchanted by Switzerland.
Our winter activity holidays in Switzerland are available for durations of five and seven nights and include tuition with the local ski school to get you started, after which, you're free to explore the snowy pine forests or head up to the sunny plateaux at Oeschinensee and Sunnbuel.
Winter holidays in Switzerland are available inclusive of flights with the option of upgrading to business, club or first class - perfect if you don't want the hassle of organising travel. Alternatively, you have the opportunity of making your own travel arrangements if you wish to extend your trip by a few days. Whatever you decide, we are here to help you create your perfect holiday.
