INNTRAVEL ALPS SLOW HOLIDAYS & GIVEAWAY! #WONDERFULVIEWS


Travelling is one of my favourite things to do, so it's to no surprise that I say yes to being a part of the #WonderfulViews campaign. If you're looking for somewhere new to travel soon, then have you ever considered seeing the Alps?

Inntravel is a slow holidays company that provides planned trips around Austria and the Alps. A slow holiday is a walking holiday. Instead of driving yourself around the country and being stuck inside a car, you can walk or cycle around and see everything properly.

Inntravel arrange the hire of your bikes (or you can walk everywhere), and they give you a routed map to follow. Whilst your luggage is transported way ahead of you, you essentially cycle from one hotel to the next. Of course, you can stop off as many times as you like on the way. It's the best way to take in all of the sights, smells and you'll have far better photo opportunities.

Two years ago, I had the pleasure of doing a road trip through Europe and I spent a few nights in Switzerland. I stayed in a town called Susten; surrounded by forests and the alps and mountains of the Valais region. 


Switzerland had never appealed to me before, but to this day, it's the best place I have ever travelled to. I really fell in love with the country and would highly recommend it as a place to see if you haven't already. 

With the location being surrounded by forests and mountains, it meant you couldn't hear a thing. It was honestly so lovely to wake up to the sound of nothing. No cars, no children, no police sirens. Just peace and quiet. 


We was staying on dry mountain land, but we was about 35 mins from the local skiing slopes. The location we was at was great, as we had many different options of things to do everyday; including skiing, snowboarding, cable cars, hiking and shopping in the local town. 


Two days is an okay timeframe to see Switzerland, but I would have liked to have stayed for another few days, so I could see it more in depth. I also wish I would have walked around a lot more, rather than relying on the car so much. 

Road trips are a fantastic way to see countries back to back, but you are limited in terms of what you can see. This is why I think this is such a fantastic campaign to be a part of, as it allows travel lovers like myself, the chance to see these beautiful countries to their fullest potential. Being a keen fitness freak, also means I would love to cycle across these countries and think the concept of a 'slow holiday' is fantastic. 

I will definitely be considering a slow holiday for my travels next year. I just need to decide whether I want to return to Switzerland or try Austria!
I also have a small giveaway to include with this campaign. If you have visited the Austrian Alps before or know someone who has and loved it, then you may want to win this vintage poster! All you have to do is fill in the form below! Giveaway ends Friday 31st July and the winner will be contacted by myself on how to claim the prize.
