Snow-capped peaks glint above and lakes sparkle below. Picturesque villages cling to the mountain sides in the distance while tumbling streams, distant bird song and the sound of cow bells provide the sound track to the day. A world away from the hustle and bustle of life at home!
In many resorts we offer our exclusive Wanderwalk programme – walks guided by our own Reps or, in a few cases, by a professional guide. Along the way, you’ll explore popular trails and learn all about local geography, history and the flora and fauna.
Our guests regularly tell us how much these walks have added to their holiday enjoyment. There’s no need to book in advance – your Rep will give you full details of the walking programme on arrival. Our Wanderwalks vary in duration and difficulty but don’t worry, your Rep will help you choose the ones that are just right for you.
Inghams holidays are based in some of the most beautiful scenery in Europe and many guests make the most of it by exploring on foot. How much of your time is spent walking and the difficulty of the terrain is up to you.
Our website is full of information about the best choices for walkers and when you get to your resort, our Inghams reps are on hand to give you all the help and advice you’ll need about the best places to go walking.
In many larger resorts we include a free orientation walk accompanied by your Inghams Rep on the first or second day to help you get your bearings.
As well as finding out useful information such as where the nearest bus stop is, the location and opening times of the supermarket and where to buy lift passes, the walk provides a great opportunity to get to know your fellow guests and chat informally to your Rep.
In many resorts the local tourist office runs a selection of guided walks which you can join. Some are free whilst others are payable locally.
Many of our partner hotels offer their own programme of guided walks usually accompanied by professional guides. These are often exclusively for Inghams guests and free of charge. See the individual hotel’s description for details.
