Not everyone enjoys a beach holiday and we all forget that destinations we think are just for winter often make ideal summer destinations too! Why do we think that beautiful locations such as the Alps are only available in the winter season for skiing holidays? Clearly they are not, in the summer the views are astounding and the temperatures in the Alps can reach a hot 35°C.
There is a whole host of summer entertainment on offer, including biking, trekking and hiking, down hill biking, beach volleyball, golf, tennis, swimming pools both indoor and outdoor, yoga classes and walking in the fresh Alpine air. Check your chosen resort to see a list of their summer activites.
