Winter Multi Activity Holiday

Holiday Overview

A flexible winter activity holiday with a range of snow based adventures to try out in the Southern French Alps. Perfect for people looking for a winter adventure in the Alps or a ski holiday with with difference! Great for mixed groups of skiers and non-skiers!

Our winter activity holiday was voted No 1 by the Guardian in it's Top 10 winter activity breaks in Europe.

The French Alps in winter are truly at their most impressive and there are lots of different ways to explore them: on snow shoes, by husky dog sled, by climbing up frozen waterfalls, or even sleep overnight in an igloo ... to name just a few - you aren't confined to just skiing!

We have put together a flexible winter multi activity holiday where you can choose from a list of accommodation and activities to tailor make your perfect winter activity adventure in the Alps. Skiing is also on the activity list if you can't resist a day on the pistes!

You can be based in the main ski resort of Orcieres 1850 for this holiday or in one of the many pretty alpine villages scattered along the Champsaur valley outside of the main resort.

The main advantages of being in Orcieres are the range of restaurants, shops, swimming pool and other facilities on your doorstep. It is easy to get to and all the activities are accessible on public transport. However, it is generally more expensive and the majority of accommodation options are in large apartment residences.

The main advantages of the ski villages are to be away from the big resort ambiance and experience a more traditional French alpine ambiance in a pretty village. There is a greater choice of accommodation from chalets to farmhouse bed and breakfasts to hotels and it is generally cheaper. However, you do need a car to get around.

In your free time, when you aren't on organised activities, there are lots of events, markets and other sightseeing opportunities such as the ice sculptures in Valgaudemar that you can visit. We'll give you up to date information when you arrive. And of course you have your snowshoes and poles for the week so when you aren't on organised activities you can explore the winter wonderland on foot. We will give you maps and route guidance on where is safe to go on your own.

It is possible to include more skiing or snowboarding with this holiday if you wish, for all or some of your party. Buying a ski pass with equipment for 3 or 4 consecutive days is cheaper than using your points by the day so please ask us to tailor make a quote for you if you are interested.

Free pair of 'Heat Holders' socks for the next person to book their winter holiday for 2018 before the end of April 2017!



Once you have booked your holiday, you will be able to choose what activities and adventures you would like to do with your points.

As soon as we have all your choices, we will organise and book them for you and create your personalised itinerary.

You don't all have to choose the same activities and can also share your group's points out as you wish, so a family could give more points to their children if they wanted. We will create an itinerary which works logistically and ensures that your holiday runs as smoothly as possible.

The earlier we can have your choices the easier it is for us to plan a good itinerary! However, as there are many factors influencing your itinerary: your choices, logistics, other clients and guide and instructor availability which can change right up to the last minute, your final itinerary will be confirmed the week before you arrive.

If you are based in the ski resort of Orcieres there are a range of public transfer services and local trains from the nearest major airports (Marseille and Grenoble) and TGV stations (Grenoble and Aix-en-Provence). The activities are all resort based or accessible on free public transport.

However, if you are in one of the alpine villages, we highly recommend you self drive to get to and from activities and explore the area in your free time as there is limited public transport.
