Lakes and Mountains

From the lakesides of Garda to the foothills of the French Alps, our summer walking holidays lead you worlds away from the daily grind. Whether you prefer short strolls or lengthier legwork; nature trails or historic tours, the opportunity is as big and beautiful as the landscape.

Our summer mountain holidays are terrific for walking/hiking and exploring the majestic mountains of Europe and Canada, while our Italian lakes holidays have all the glamour of the Riviera plus the vistas and activities to keep families and couples as culturally stimulated or physically active as you like. Slake your summer thirst for travel and exploration in the most beautiful places on the planet.

Lake Garda

Italy’s biggest lake is surrounded by fascinating old towns, colourful marinas, ancient churches and fairy-tale castles. Mother Nature outdoes herself here with clear blue water reflecting mountain peaks, rolling hills, tiddly islands and jagged cliffs. Walk, cycle, swim, sail or windsurf ‘til the cows come home, or find your favourite gelateria and watch the world go by…

Lake Como

Captivating Como: a feast for the eyes with colourful cobbled towns, sky-high mountains and rolling vineyards around glittering water… Waist deep in la dolce vita, with beaches, chic cafes and waterside wine bars… And a lesson in class, from the grand hotels and villas to designer silks and gourmet restaurants.


Not just known for its nosh, this is a nation of colourful lake towns and the most magnificent mountains resorts. Plan a stay as active or relaxed as you please, setting off on hikes and bike rides or sitting in cafés to soak up the sights.


The land that inspired Byron, Tolkein and Twain makes a marvellous holiday destination, whether you’re planning long walks to waterfalls, bike rides down mountainsides or a snooze-filled spa break. Grand hotels will see you well fed and watered - positioned on glittering lakesides, streets in full bloom and mountains high.


If there was ever a place to escape the everyday and relish the rural, it’d be the Austrian Alps. Swap high rise buildings for snow-capped peaks and split your time between edelweiss meadows, medieval market towns and scenic shepherd’s huts. Ride on horseback or mountain-bike, stretch your legs on short strolls or long-haul hikes – and leave the daily grind far, far away.

Lake & Mountain Luxury

Naturally stunning surroundings (snow-capped peaks, rolling meadows, bright blue lakes…), knee-deep history (churches, castles, monuments…) and captivating culture (good food, local wines, artisan creations…) make our finest lake and mountain resorts spot on for high-end holidays.

Wake up to the waterfront from elegant lakeside hotels, fresh-as-can-be air from mountain spa resorts and views of endless peaks from five star chalets. Whether you spend your days exploring old towns, hiking high mountains or whiling away hours in wellness centres, there’s no shortage of ways to spend a five star stay.
