Hitting the slopes: an Easter motorhome adventure
Sun, snow and skiing. It doesn’t sound like the average Easter bank holiday weekend, but Mike and Beth from The Motorhome Travel Agency bundled their kids up and headed off to Switzerland for a spring-y motorhome adventure. Here’s what they got up to:
Thursday 24th March
With an early start, we made our way to the Eurotunnel to begin our adventure. Our plan was to travel through France into Belgium, Germany and Austria, before finally rolling into Switzerland. Unfortunately, travelling on a bank holiday weekend led to unsurprising delays on our journey to Cologne, so we arrived early evening.
Friday 25th March
The next day we continued our motorhome adventure and made our way to the beautiful Lake Constance by mid-afternoon. The lake is breath-taking and is a great place to spot local nature and wildlife, even if it was drizzling on our visit!
Nearby we discovered a cosy hotel bar with a huge fireplace and enjoyable spa facilities.
Saturday 26th March
Today the sun was shining as we left Lake Constance and headed for the mountains in Arosa. This is a truly beautiful drive, with snow-capped mountains visible from the outset of the journey. After crossing the Swiss border and leaving the motorway we embarked on the 18 mile ascent to Arosa. We spent the afternoon exploring the shops and getting lift passes so we were ready to begin skiing the next day…
Sunday 27th – Thursday 31st March
With perfect snow-conditions we spent many days exploring Arosa’s sunny ski slopes. The ski resort offers skiing options for all abilities, so even if you are new to skiing you can learn the basics quickly. On Tuesday we also explored the enchanting frozen lake.
Friday 1st April
Today we left Arosa after a wonderful few days spent skiing. We stopped overnight in Saarbucken and the following day travelled the 525 miles back towards France.
Saturday 2nd April
After stocking up on (cheap) wine in Calais we arrived back in Bristol around 6pm.
If you like the sound of our trip, keep your eyes peeled for our new package which will be coming soon for spring/summer. This will include visiting Lake Constance and travelling down through France for a great scenic trip.We can now include hiking tours around the Arosa area, which we will tie into our package deal.
