Detailed Description

Chalets are synonymous with the mountains. Comfort and luxury fill the interior with a view of the natural splendor of the landscape. Your 12-day alpine vacation shows you the endless marvels of the mountaintops and the continuous ardor inspired by the natural landscape and charismatic villages across the Alps and Dolomites. When you arrive in Salzburg, Austria your private transfer meets you at the airport. The city center has a historic village-like ambiance surrounded by a romantic backdrop of the mountains. The remainder of the day is yours to relax in the city as you please.

The following day, your guide meets you at the hotel and escorts you on a private tour of Salzburg, showing you the Baroque architecture and colorful markets, along with more pleasures from the city’s past. After breakfast, you make your way to the picturesque town of Hallstatt, located in the Salzkammergut Lake Region. The peaceful town allows you to indulge in the day at your leisure, whether enjoying the view or visiting the ancient salt mine. A scenic drive through the Dolomites takes you into Italy and the stunning high-altitude plateau of Alpe di Siusi. You have an entire day to revel in the vast pastures, explore the towering cliffs, visit the town of Bolzano, or even take a couple’s cooking course to learn how to make a comforting meal for two.

The following day, you will have a chance to ride a gondola taking you to Germany’s highest point, known as Zugspitze before continuing into the Bavarian town known as Füssen. Your guide meets you in the morning to lead you through a private tour of King Ludwig’s fairytale castles, Neuschwanstein and Hohenshwangau. You have time to take in a charming bike ride around the nearby villages as well. The following day, your private transfer takes you into the majestic rolling peaks of the Swiss Alps, settling in the exceptional Lauterbrunnen Valley. Enjoy the comforts of the chalet and spend a full day discovering the wonders of the mountains, from glacial waterfalls to a mountaintop village near an ice palace.

You venture from the Swiss Alps to the French Alps, finding a cozy and luxurious atmosphere at the resort town of Chamonix. Revel in the beauty of the landscape on a couple’s gondola ride to the top of Le Brévent, where you can indulge in a dinner with a breathtaking view. You have the entire next day to fully enjoy your France vacation and explore the awe-inspiring scenery around Chamonix, from the tremendous network of gondolas to France’s highest glacier. On your final morning, your private transfer will meet you in the lobby of your hotel and escort you to Geneva Airport for your flight home.
