Why not take the opportunity to get away from it all and relax with your friends in the beautiful mountains in Northern Italy.

Zuba organises trips to Courmayeur, Cervinia, Champoluc, Gressoney and Alagna Valsesia

Whichever resort takes your fancy, it’s an easy flight from the main airports in the Uk.

You arrange suitable flights to suit you and your group and Zuba will find the right accommodation for you during your stay. With local contacts and experience in all five resorts, we can organise the details to ensure you make the most of your trip.

To give you an idea of what a short trip to the mountains might look like we have put together a sample itinerary. We have lots of ideas, so if this doesn’t tempt you we can work out a plan that best suits your group.

Day 1 - Thursday - Travel and Settle

  • Meet the girls at the airport and take your flight to Turin, Geneva or Milan Malpensa and arrive in Italy with time to spare.
  • Take your transfer to your resort and check in to your hotel.
  • Spend some time settling in, before getting ready for your first night out in the mountains.

Day 2 - Friday - Time to explore

  • After a delicious buffet breakfast, get your ski gear on and head to the ski shop to rent your equipment.
  • Now you are prepared, and you have a coffee to go, take the lift up the mountain to test out those ski legs. Try out some pistes and get your bearings before stopping off for a tasty carbonara or Italian pancakes. Continue exploring the mountain until you are ready to head down. 
  • Back at the hotel, lighten the load and have a refresh before heading onto the main high street for some cocktails.
  • Head to the nearest pizza restaurant, because they taste so good!

Day 3 - Saturday - Guided tour 

  • Meet your Italian guide for a full tour of the mountain. Trust in their expertise and knowledge and discover your surroundings.
  • Stop off at a typical mountain eatery and try out those local dishes.
  • Test out the après ski at the bottom of the mountain before heading back to the hotel. 
  • Head out for that Italian passeggiata and take a walk around your neighbourhood. Perhaps indulge in a little shopping and then settle in for a cosy dinner with your group of friends.

Day 4 - Sunday - Action and Entertainment

  • Make the most of your last day on the mountain.
  • Enjoy your favourite runs and revisit your most preferred areas on the mountain.
  • For the afternoon, head back to the hotel or experience an afternoon of wellness, test out those saunas and relax those muscles. Why not book a massage?
  • Relax in your hotel, play some cards and cosy up in front of the fire, before sampling the hotel’s cuisine.

Day 5 - Monday - Head home feeling replenished

  • It’s time to head home, so pack up your things, and take a relaxed transfer back to the airport and continue your journey onwards, not forgetting to share all those photos of the trip with your friends.
