The Alps

Trip Planner Europe  /  The Alps
Although many consider the Alps primarily a winter destination ideal for skiing and snowboarding, this region boasts a long tradition of mountain holiday-making in the summer. An Alps vacation in the warmer months yields clear skies and pleasant temperatures suitable for a range of outdoor activities, including hiking, cycling, and climbing. Europe's highest and most extensive mountain range, the Alps encompass picture-perfect national parks, spas, and resorts in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, and Switzerland. With so many destinations to choose from for your Alps holiday, even the less snow-inclined are sure to find something to love.
