Snowy Holidays For Non-Skiers
Take a trip through the Alps on the famous Glacier Express, one of the most scenic train journeys in Europe. The 181 mile trip from Zermatt to St Moritz lasts around eight hours, with carriages fitted with panoramic sightseeing windows to take in the breath-taking views.
The cobbled streets and winding canals of Bruges come alive in winter, as the town gets into the festive spirit and the quaint streets are decorated ready for the big day. Visit the main square and go ice skating or sit rink-side with a cup of hot chocolate. To get away from the tourist trail explore the lanes surrounding Grote Markt.
Every winter, a hotel made entirely from snow and ice appears for three months. The Hotel de Glace is an architectural marvel, with a design which changes each year. Guests can explore the Great Hall, chapel, night club and ice bar before spending the night on an ice bed in one of the themed suites. An experience you'll be talking about for years.
