Always fancied the idea of spending your vacation in a winter wonderland but have no desire to strap a pair of skis or a snowboard to your feet? No worries, you don’t have to be an adrenalin junkie to enjoy yourself in the mountains this winter:

Dog Sled Tours
Enjoy a memorable backcountry experience on a dog sled tour. Sleds are pulled by enthusiastic teams of dogs and glide quietly along snow-covered trails. Sit cocooned and cosy in the sled. Or, learn commands from your guide (gee, haw, hike!), stand on the sled runners and drive the dog team.

Spa
Rejuvenate your body, mind and soul. The world’s top ski hotels now have full-service spas and sophisticated treatment menus to rival anything to be found in an urban five-star hotel. After your treatment, relax in an outdoor hot tub and soak up the scenery.

Snowshoeing
If you are keen to explore the snowy mountain forests then you may want to consider snowshoeing. Rent a pair of snowshoes and take yourself out on the alpine trails for some fresh mountain air, exercise and enjoyment. Most resorts also offer guided tours.

Tubing
Unleash your inner child and feel the rush and exhilaration of flying down the slopes on an inflatable tube. Guaranteed fun and laughter for all ages.

Ice Skating
Don a pair of skates and slide gracefully across the ice on an outdoor rink.  A magical feeling both on a winter’s afternoon in the warming sunshine, or of an evening with twinkling chalet lights and falling snow.

Zip-lining
Ok, this one does require you to be somewhat of an adrenalin junkie, but it is far too much fun to miss off of this list! Experience the beauty of the mountains suspended high above ground and soaring through the trees on a fantastic aerial adventure.

 And if none of these off-piste activities take your fancy, what could be nicer than snuggling by the fire with a glass of mulled wine in hand?!
