If it’s snow you’re after, Inghams have a range of packages that is child-friendly and takes the pain out of booking. They provide a range of child discounts and free ski pack items and offer hundreds of free child places (first come, first served) to help keep your wallet in reasonable shape. They’ll also tell you the best places to be in at Christmas time, where to watch out for New Year’s Eve firework displays and where the best snow and skiboard festivals are. Accommodation varies; you could choose a wooden traditional chalet with its homely comforts or opt for something modern and sleek to pamper yourself. After a day on the slopes you’ll appreciate the indoor pools, log fires, spas or terraces to soak up the views.
Their Lakes & Mountains holidays open up areas that, quite rightly, are now becoming known for the fantastic holidays they offer outside of the ski season. When the snows disappear the mountains become a hedonist’s heaven. The chocolate box prettiness of villages and mountains, flora and fauna is a hard one to resist, especially when combined with a rake of activities. You can choose a holiday that suits your family; from rail holidays, discovering castles, walking, cycling, white water rafting and zip wiring or all of the above! They’ll even let you know the best places for jumping on the back of a horse or even a llama! Whatever you’re after, you’re guaranteed a knowledgeable response from these experts and will find what you’re looking for here.
