Travel through the Alpine scenery of France and Switzerland on the Mont Blanc Express and enjoy crystal blue lakes and picture-perfect villages on this charming no-fly holiday

From the glistening waters of Lake Annecy to spectacular views from the Mont Blanc Express, the mountains and lakes of the Alps are a wonderful destination for anyone who appreciates the beauty of nature.

On this six-day trip you'll have plenty of time to soak up the stunning scenery of this beautiful part of Europe. Travelling by train and coach, you'll glide through pretty countryside on your journey to your hotel in the picturesque resort of La Clusaz, where you'll be surrounded by lush mountain views and traditional chalet-style buildings.

The views will be unforgettable, and you'll have the perfect opportunity to take it all in as you spend a day riding on the Mont Blanc Express. You'll see magical landscapes as you travel from Gervais-les-Bains to beautiful Chamonix on one of the world's most famous mountain rail lines.

There'll also be plenty of time to explore the many quaint French towns in the area and wander along the shores of Lake Annecy, enjoying its serenity and calm waters. You'll spend a day in Aix-les-Bains, one of Europe's most fashionable destinations where you can relax on golden sandy beaches and enjoy a spot of shopping, and enjoy a day trip to bustling Geneva.

You'll be staying at the wonderful four-star Hotel Beauregard for five nights, tucked away in the heart of the Aravis mountain range in La Clusaz. You'll benefit from the gloriously fresh air of the French Alps here, and can spend time in between excursions relaxing in the hotel's heated pool, Turkish bath, sauna or private solarium. There are several stylish lounges with fireplaces where you can kick back with a glass of wine, or you might choose to have your drinks on the large terrace, taking in the Aravis landscape.
