Snowmobiling

Snowmobiling

Snowmobiling is a sport in which you take to the snowy environments on a snowmobile and explore what is available to you. Snowmobiles are not as widely available in the Alps as they are in places such as North America and Japan simply due to the terrain. However, if you can find a touring operator that hires out snowmobiles or offers guided tours then it can be a great sport to try.

Snowmobiles tend to head off piste to be able to avoid annoying the local skiers and damaging the runs they use, so it is no surprise that if you are snowmobiling for an hour or more you can find yourself in some of the most remote and beautiful places in the world with open views of untouched snowy wilderness.

Alpine Spa

The Alps house a wide array of luxurious spa hotels that attract millions of people from around the world every year. One of these is the exclusive LeCrans Hotel and Spa, which boasts amazing views, rooms and spa facilities for all of its guests. This Swiss based hotel in the Lens region has its own intimate woodland surrounding followed by one of the highest rated spar facilities in Europe and in turn has to be a symbol of amazing spa’s in Europe.
