I'm dreaming of a white Christmas Kick off your magical adventure in a first class Swiss chalet in a hidden village perched dramatically in the snow-clad Swiss Alps. Spend Christmas as it should be - simply relax, take in the spa pampering treatments or ski on the slopes high above the town where the church bells are ringing amongst the enchanting snow-clad environment. Hot chocolate & biscuits Head along to several locations in the Austrian Lakes District made famous in the Sound of Music film as well as the famous Silent Night Chapel on the site the Christmas carol was first ever performed.

Glacier Express Germany’s southernmost city is Appenzell where you can enjoy a delightful horse drawn sleigh ride underneath snow-topped trees and stunning village settings, before boarding the famous Glacier Express train through Switzerland’s finest mountain scenery. Choose premium seats in the panoramic carriages and you’ll be presented with the utmost luxury and scenic views. Warm tubs & spa treatments The Spa Town of Leukerbad is set in a hidden valley at an altitude of 1,400 metres you’ll be surrounded by towering, jagged peaks. Hot, therapeutic natural thermal water spring out from these mountains. Magical landscapes are awaiting you with snow-capped mountains, chalets and trees in the crisp northern hemisphere winter sun.
