Peak Dates Holidays

Why not leave the dreary British winter behind and head to the Swiss Alps for a white Christmas. The chocolate-box buildings of Zermatt look extra special in the glistening snow. At Christmas, Zermatt resembles scenes from a Christmas card with snow-lined streets, twinkling lights and a glorious tree in the town square.

Zermatt is perhaps the jewel in the crown of Swiss resorts with the imposing Matterhorn, great links over to the friendly Italian resort of Cervinia and the highest skiing in Europe - all perfect reasons to head here for a Christmas ski holiday! Being at such a high altitude and with a skiable glacier, the skiing is usually excellent over the festive period. Even if the snowfall has been less generous, there are excellent artificial snow making facilities. Cars are not allowed in Zermatt center. The only traffic are electric powered taxis and buses. Most people arrive by train; the stunning scenery makes the journey into the resort part of the holiday.

Zermatt is blessed with a large number of 6 and 8 person chalets which are the perfect size for a small family or a group of friends to enjoy the festive week in the mountains. Your attentive chalet hosts will be on hand to prepare a full three or four course traditional Christmas dinner on the 25th with none of the preparation or huge amounts of washing up to deal with!

In Switzerland, the main Christmas festivities take place on Christmas Eve, so if that's your chalet host's day off, you'll want to ensure that you book a restaurant in advance. Christmas Day is business as usual on the mountains so you won't miss out on a day's skiing. There are special festive activities laid on throughout the Christmas week by the town council and the ski school so you can expect synchronised skiing, visits from Father Christmas, music concerts, horse drawn sleigh rides, and much more besides.

Despite Zermatt's exclusive reputation there are a lot of excellent value ski chalets on offer, many of which include your flights and transfers from the UK which is one less thing to organise! Or if you want to really push the boat out then you can enjoy Michelin starred cuisine and helicopter transfers - just have a word with one of our experts to see what is available!
