Inghams' 2015 Lakes & Mountains programme offers a host of new holidays with highlights including he introduction of stand-alone city breaks including Vienna, Innsbruck and Munich, new gentle cycling and scenic walking tours in Germany and Austria, as well as a fresh focus on the gardens of Italy, Germany and Switzerland.
The operator has added nine new destinations, two new Chalet Hotels and more than 50 new partner hotels to its summer 2015 programme, many of which have been included in the programme at the special request of customers.
Lovers of Austria will welcome the introduction of Brand and Bürserberg, Scheffau and Bad Kleinkirchheim in Carinthia, while in Switzerland Hilterfingen on Lake Thun joins the programme. The operator's Chalet Hotel concept continues to grow in popularity with Chalet Elisabeth in Lech joining the company’s existing portfolio of chalet properties in Austria. In Italy, the company will feature two new lakes – Lake Orta, to the west of Lake Maggiore, and Lake Ledro, set high above Lake Garda, is now offered as a resort in its own right. Also new in Italy are Maderno, between Gardone and Limone, and the walking centre of Champoluc located high in the Monte Rosa region where guests will stay at Chalet Hotel Breithorn.
The spa town of Crikvenica in Croatia is also new for this summer. With its bustling tree-lined promenade, Crikvenica is located on the Kvarner Riviera, 33km away from Rijeka.
A seven-night stay in Crikvenica at the four-star Grand Kvamer Palace costs from £679 per person on a half-board basis including flights and transfers.
Meanwhile, the company has added several twin-centre options to link mountain and lake resorts. As an example, a Lake Garda Highlights option, is based at Desenzano for the first four nights before guests transfer by leisurely lake steamer to Riva at the northern tip of the lake to spend a week in a three- or four-star hotel. Saturday flights are available via Verona from £999 per person including transfers, a full day tour of the Dolomites and Venice plus a half-day wine-tasting excursion.
