How your Alpine Holiday can be both Active and Relaxing

Regardless of the time of year, the Alps are the perfect place for a holiday.

There are many reasons for this! The most important one being is that there’s so much to do. Whether you’re seeking a rejuvenating retreat in the mountains, or an active trip, the Alps have something for you. 

It’s the best of both worlds!

If you’re still unconvinced, here’s how your Alpine holiday can be both active and relaxing. 

The Picturesque Landscape

Holidays are about escaping your reality for a little while! 

Is there anything more breath-taking than a view of the Alps? We don’t think so!

The aim of going on holiday is to come back feeling refreshed, and the Alps is home to some stunning sights that are the perfect medicine!

So, whether you’re skiing down them, hiking through them or simply admiring them, the Alps’ views are a great ingredient to any holiday. 

The Range of Activities 

Of course, one of the best reasons to head to the Alps is for the activities. While skiing and snowboarding are usually the top picks, there are plenty of others on offer also.

Summer in the Alps opens up the opportunity to take advantage for some exciting outdoor pursuits! These include:

  • Hiking
  • Horse riding
  • White water rafting
  • Kayaking
  • Canyoning 
  • Cycling

There are plenty more where those came from also! But, if you prefer to stick to tradition, the skiing and snowboarding is unparalleled. For those looking to appreciate the landscape fully, have a go at cross country skiing. 

If you’re not one for high-intense sports, have a go at Pilates or yoga. 

There Are Plenty of Chances to Treat Yourself

massageOne of the best features of an Alpine holiday is that it’s the best of both worlds. So, while you might spend the day getting your heart racing, you can spend the evening letting out this tension in a calmer way.

In the Alps, the balance between activity and relaxation is ideal. Getting active is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a massage at the end! 

In fact, the benefits of massages are endless, including helping with post-skiing recovery or preparing for your sport of choice. But, even if you’re seeking a lower intensity trip, a massage is the perfect way to help you unwind. 

There’s no better chance to treat yourself some quality ‘me-time’ than on holiday! 

There Is Always Something to Do

In the Alps, you’ll meet all kinds of people, from families to university students. So, make sure you take advantage of this! 

If you’re on the hunt for an exciting social scene, you’ll find it all over the mountain range, particularly in winter. The exciting range of bars and clubs in the Alps make it a great place to visit for those looking to let their hair down. 

You might think that in the spring and summer, there’s a lack of things to do. But, you’d be wrong! Many families head to the Alps in the warmer months to experience the mountains in a different way.

From village fetes to fireworks displays, summer is a quieter yet exciting time to be in the Alps! Plus, if you do fancy somewhere to dance the night away, many places are open until the early hours. 

You can spend the day exploring the mountains or sampling the local cuisine, before heading out to the bar of your choice!

No matter what your idea of a good night is, you’re sure to find something to suit your taste.
