Ditch Your Sandals For The Slopes

When it is done right, a skiing holiday for two can be a truly unforgettable experience.

Ski honeymoons are undeniably romantic. At the end of a busy day doing runs down the mountain, and riding up the chairlift arm in arm, you can take the time to warm up together. Imagine hot chocolate by a fireplace, dancing around an ice rink, horse-drawn carriage rides and spa treatments for two.

Here’s a look at some of our top destinations for snow-filled adventures!

Le Portetta Courchevel, France

Ski Honeymoon in France

Courchevel Moriond is a fantastic, diverse ski area. The piste’s are wider and longer, they tend to have less people on which is a bonus for any level of skier but especially beginners. If you are a little more extreme then Courchevel Moriond offers extreme off piste skiing too.

If your legs are aching and you just need a day off then Courchevel has plenty to offer you too. Courchevel Moriond has some lovely restaurants where you can relax and enjoy the French cuisine. Or a short car journey away you will find tobogganing, Ice skating, bowling, Go-Karting and much more.
