We have got a variety of accommodation, from converted chateaux to camping, and can even arrange a night in a hammock in the woods, or, if you are here in winter, you can sleep in an igloo!

Our most popular holidays are our summer and winter multi activity holidays which use a system of activity points to give you a fully flexible tailor made adventure in the Alps!

We also have a range of sport specific holidays like mountaineering, walking, kayaking, ski touring, snowshoeing and ice climbing as well as more unusual holidays like wolf tracking. Please browse our holidays section for more information.
