Ski-Walk Austria and France, Explore Germany and Switzerland

This European trip will offer a potpourri of experiences. Tour a UNESCO World Heritage site on the Danube, ride local trains, visit ancient walled towns. Ski and winter walk resorts in Austria and France with areas much larger than in the US, including off-piste and glacier skiing. Walkers can ride skier lifts to the mountain tops. Enjoy lots of sun but few tourists!

Tour the ancient walled cities of Munich and Geneva, as well as Regensburg, a UNESCO World Heritage site on the Danube.  Travel to Sölden, Austria where you can ski or walk an area with 36 lifts, including some for glacier skiing.  Walkers can ride lifts to the tops of all the mountains.  Pass through lovely Lucerne, Switzerland before arriving at Les Carroz, France. With 68 ski lifts of groomed and un-groomed runs, the Grand Massif at Les Carroz links 6 resorts including Flaine. As you walk in the village of Les Carroz, the fumes from a pot of vin chaud at a streetside wine shop will tempt you to stop, relax, and think about your great day of skiing before you go ice skating or to the activity center.
