Lakes & Mountains with Elegant Resorts
If you’re looking for the complete antithesis of a beach or city holiday and crave crisp, clean air, nature and magnificent scenery, we have a fabulous collection of luxury hotels and lodges in areas of the world that fit the bill perfectly, including in Canada, Chile, India, New Zealand, Italy and Morocco. Anywhere you decide to visit, the crystal-clear waters of magnificent, remote lakes offer a picturesque backdrop to days spent kayaking, fishing, walking and boating, while nestled into the perimeters of Italy’s magnificent lakes, you’ll find charming little towns made up of narrow, winding streets, medieval architecture and quaint churches that are perfect for relaxed exploration. Often part of national parks in remote, serene locations, the world’s majestic mountains never fail to offer peaceful, awe-inspiring places in which visitors can enjoy a thrilling array of outdoor activities, including hiking, walking, mountain-biking, bird-watching and horse-riding, with fragrant pine forests, gushing waterfalls and wildlife providing a feast for the eyes and the near-silence allowing for quiet contemplation and a recharging of the batteries. At many of our luxury hotels and lodges in lake and mountain locations, you’ll find wellbeing is very much a part of their philosophy, and many boast spas perfectly located to make the most of the impressive surroundings, with activities such as yoga and meditation performed in the most idyllic, peaceful locations imaginable. If you wish to take in the scenery across an expansive area, you could do no better than experience a luxury rail journey in Canada that traverses terrain filled with the most glorious snow-capped mountains, pine forests and impossibly blue, clear lakes. Wherever you choose to travel, you can be assured of a restful holiday far away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
