Visit Geneva’s must-see attractions, the gothic Cathedral St-Pierre, the formidable Palace of Nations and the charming Old Town complete with narrow cobbled streets and sideways stacked town houses. You can fit it all in one day, with time left over for a traditional restaurant meal.
After a day of intense and cold action on the snowy slopes, enjoy some apres-ski indulgence with a trip to one of the fantastic Swiss spas. Get yourself a traditional deep tissue massage to ease those aching muscles and finish up with a hot chocolate by the fireplace of a cosy bar- simply divine.
If you're feeling especially fearless then take Chamonix Mont Blanc’s cable car up 3,842m to the Aiguille du Midi peak. There’s a glass viewing box which juts out of the mountain, giving a heart-stopping view of the vast winter wonderland of the Chamonix valley below!
If skiing isn’t your thing or you want to try something a little different, there are plenty of other snowy activities to try like snowboarding. Aravis has a great programme of unusual non-ski activities including snowshoe walking, ice skating, cable car rides and even paragliding!
Hop the borders into France or Italy for a day of exploring what the other country’s slopes have to offer. Geneva sits right between the two countries so all you’ll need is your passport before you can enjoy the culinary delights and snowy scenery of the French or Italian Alps.
The closest major ski area to Geneva is Aravis, which includes the pretty resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand. Boasting a range of slopes for all ski levels surrounded by snowy peaks and pine trees, it’s a world away from cosmopolitan city life, yet just 50 minutes from Geneva. Just an hour from Geneva you'll find the popular Chamonix Mont Blanc ski area. The stunning peaks of the Mont Blanc mountain range make this a particularly beautiful winter playground, with runs for all levels of ski and snowboarding ability. Back in Geneva the views are undeniably spectacular too, with the city wrapping itself around the sparkling waters of the lake, complete with mountain backdrop. Although it's not the capital city of Switzerland, Geneva is thought of by many as the most beautiful. Its close proximity to some amazing ski resorts puts it right at the top of any list of dream Alpine destinations, so book your flights with Thomascook Airlines and get your own piece of glorious Geneva.
