On arrival at the airport you will be met and transferred to our hotel, where we stay for seven nights on a half board basis. On arrival you'll have time to settle in before dinner.

Days 2 to 7

During our festive holiday we have included three full day excursions; to Innsbruck, Salzburg and a Winter Wonderland tour, and a half day excursion to Kitzbuhel. There's also a full day at leisure.

Salzburg

On our included full day excursion to Salzburg we’ll have plenty of time for sightseeing in this beautiful city. There is also a very good shopping centre - ideal for that last minute gift! We return to our hotel in time for dinner.

A Day at Leisure

On our day at leisure perhaps take a chairlift or cable car up to the heights, explore the shops, have a drink in one of the cafes and bars or simply relax in the comfortable surroundings of the hotel.

Christmas Eve - Kitzbuhel

This morning we have a half day excursion to Kitzbuhel. There is a good choice of shops here and a Christmas market - ideal for finding that last minute gift - and afterwards perhaps enjoy a hot chocolate and cake in one of the tea rooms. This afternoon you can again relax and unwind in the comfortable surroundings of our hotel, or perhaps make some more discoveries in our Tyrolean village resort. This evening enjoy a traditional Austrian Christmas dinner and later this evening, you may wish to join the local congregation for the church service.

Christmas Day - Optional Sleigh Ride

Happy Christmas! After a hearty breakfast there will be plenty of time to open your presents. A little later today wrap up wam for an enjoyable optional horse drawn sleigh ride. This evening in the hotel we have our Christmas Day dinner.

Weather permitting, today’s fantastic coach tour takes us past high mountains and through snow covered valleys. We’ll enjoy incredible panoramas and see delightful picture-postcard villages with their chalet-style cottages – Christmas time Austria at its very best.

Not to be missed is our excursion to Innsbruck - the Tyrolean Capital. We’ll have a guided walking tour around the traffic-free ‘Old Town’, with its beautiful ornate buildings and the unique Golden Roof.
