Inghams Lakes & Mountains

Inghams Lakes & Mountains 2020/2021





Italy

From the shores of Lake Garda to the peaks of the Dolomites, Italy is a truly stunning country with some seriously impressive scenery. This is your chance to discover the enchanting views over the likes of Lake Como and Lake Maggiore, enjoying leisurely walks along the shorefront, before taking a cruise on the lake to take in the sights from a different vantage point.

If you love heading into the hills, you'll love the little mountain towns like Selva and Merano. Perfect places to stay as a base so you can go hiking, mountain biking and much more in the area. And why not book a twin centre holiday, combining the best of the Italian Dolomites with time at the beaches of Sardinia or Puglia.

Austria

One of the best things about a Lakes & Mountains holiday in Austria, is the ability to combine two destinations in one, so that you can enjoy the cafes of Salzburg, before heading to Zell am See, a beautiful holiday resort, offering both lake and mountains, so you can take part in a variety of activities including heading up in the gondola to enjoy mountain walks.

If you like trying somewhere new, take a look at some of Austria's cute, little Alpine towns and villages like Alpbach, Mayrhofen, Seefeld and St Anton, which are filled with colourful flowers in the summer and cute hotels, and are perfect for enjoying the dramatic landscapes of the country.

Switzerland

When you think of a holiday with lakes and mountains, Switzerland is very likely at the top of your list. Famous for yummy Swiss cheese, delicious chocolate and, of course, the seriously impressive Matterhorn, on the border with Italy. Switzerland has some wonderful mountain resorts, well known for skiing in winter but in summer, they are a fabulous place to enjoy the green slopes and forests, mixed with dramatic rock faced mountains.

Popular Swiss mountain resorts include Davos and Zermatt, while Montreux on Lake Geneva is idyllic if you prefer to be lakeside. Of course, you can't miss Interlaken either, which sits between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz but offers a beautiful mountain backdrop too. And how about combining a twin centre stay to see more of the country, like a few nights in Geneva and a couple of nights in a chalet hotel in Wengen.

Slovenia

You might not have considered Slovenia for your next holiday but if you love the outdoors, it's definitely somewhere to think about. The scenery in Slovenia is something off Instagram with popular areas like Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj offering crystal clear water and a wealth of walking routes to enjoy. And don't forget Kranjska Gora, a little alpine village in the far north west of Slovenia, close to the border of Italy and Austria, which is popular with skiiers in the winter months.

One of the great things about Slovenia is the ability to stay in both Ljubljana for a quick city break, before heading off to lose yourself amongst the trees, lakes and mountain tops. You can even combine a holiday in Slovenia with a stay in Austria.
