ITINERARY

Day One: We depart in the early hours for our journey south to Folkestone and through the Eurotunnel to Calais, then on to our overnight hotel in delightful Troyes, the former historic capital of the Champagne Region. This medieval old town features narrow, cobbled streets lined with colourful half-timbered houses mostly dating from the 16th century and is home to several Gothic churches.

 

Day Two: We continue along the French AutoRoute’s and through the Vosges Mountains, then cross the border into Switzerland and on via Zurich into Austria and the Hotel Arlberg at St Anton where we stay for the next six nights.

 

Day Three: A day at leisure to relax, enjoy the surrounding scenery and explore the resort. The heart of St Anton has a pleasant pedestrian area with a variety of shops, bars and restaurants with flower-decked balconies. There are several cable cars and chair lifts available including one that takes you to the impressive Valluga Peak, which at a height of over 9,000 ft gives an unforgettable view across a vast expanse of peaks and glaciers. Guests staying at the Hotel Arlberg will receive a complimentary Summer Card which offers free use of all local buses and cable cars.

 

Day Four: Today we travel along the Inn Valley to visit Innsbruck, the historic capital of the Tyrol. Explore the old quarter with its charming arcaded streets, ornate architecture and the 15th century ‘Golden Roof’, designed as a royal box for the Emperor to sit in state above the square below. Other sights are the Imperial Palace, St Jakob's Cathedral, the Tyrolean Folk Art Museum, the bustling Marie Theresa Strasse and the Olympic ski jump set high above the town.

 

Day Five: This morning we head for beautiful Lake Constance and visit Bregenz, renowned for its lovely medieval streets and its floating stage that is reputed to be the largest in the world. We continue to the picturesque old town of Lindau, located on an island in the lake. See the lavishly decorated town hall and enjoy the views of the mountain peaks from the town’s harbour.

 

Day Six: A spectacular excursion today travelling via the Paznaun Valley to visit the lovely village of Ischgl. From here we drive over the Silvretta High-Alpine Road, described as one of the most beautiful passes in the Alps ascending into the ‘Blue Silvretta’ mountain range, surrounded by glaciers and the 3300 metre peak of Piz Buin.
