Not after a ‘fly and flop’ or lying-on-a-beach-doing nothing type of honeymoon? Then let us direct your attention to the polar (quite literally, sometimes) opposite… the luxury ski honeymoon.

At Original Travel, we like to consider ourselves somewhat expert in the art of honeymoon planning, and in our (humble) opinion there is no more adrenaline filled post-nuptial break than a luxury honeymoon on the slopes. Spectacular alpine scenery, adrenaline-filled slopes and some incredible food and wine are all part and parcel of a ski trip, which all sounds like a pretty incredible start to married life, if you ask us. Which we hope you will.

We know the most romantic ski destinations around the world (from Canada to New Zealand and Japan to Chile) that are open for business in pretty much every month of the year, so regardless of when the wedding is, a luxury ski honeymoon is a very real possibility. We can arrange heli-skiing à deux, dog sledding trips (accompanied by plenty of vin chaud), and truly romantic meals at some of the best mountain restaurants in the world - we can get you a table at one of ten ski in/ski out Michelin starred restaurants in The Three Valleys alone. Throw in some truly luxurious hotels and chalets for good measure and your luxury ski honeymoon will be a holiday unlike any other - as a honeymoon should be.

Here are some of our top pick destinations around the world.

Where to go

Chamonix Shuttle Train


Chamonix is one of the most convenient locations in the Alps for a ski holiday, being just an hour’s drive from Geneva airport. It is also home to some of the finest on- and off-piste skiing in Europe, if not the world.

The Dolomites

The Dolomites

A well known winter ski destination, the northern Italian mountains are also beautiful in the summer. The Dolomites became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009.

Zermatt and Matterhorn


The prettiest town in the Alps, and some of the best skiing.

St Moritz

St Moritz

St. Moritz is the oldest, and easily most glamorous, winter sports resort in the world, and has been host to two Winter Olympics and three Alpine Ski World Championships.

A Lake and Mountains


The most northerly ski resort in the world, where skiing is possible under the midnight sun even in June.

Sun rising over the mountains

The Three Valleys

Welcome to the world's biggest single ski area.

What to do


Skiing in Sweden

Devotees of the Alps, your attention, please. Yes, the respective resorts of Switzerland, France, Austria and Italy represent a pretty attractive snowy smorgasbord, but don’t rule out the spiritual home of the smorgasbord itself – Sweden.

Skiing Dolomites, Italy

Ski The Secret Dolomites

To many people the Dolomites are something of a secret anyway, but word is getting out about this staggeringly beautiful region, and its skiing (and eating) potential.

Skiing in Portillo

Ski Portillo

Just two hour's drive from the capital Santiago, Portillo is the finest ski resort in Latin America, with a majestic Andean setting and superb powder conditions.

Skiing in Japan

Skiing in Japan

Japan is just starting to appear on European skiers’ radars, and with very good reason. The powder is reliable, the resorts run like clockwork, there are hot springs to dip in to and volcanoes to ski on and what’s not to like about après-ski sushi? Even better, there are a mere 600 resorts to choose from on the main island of Honshu and the northerly Hokkaido island, so there’s likely to be somewhere to suit every type of skier. This being Japan there are no particularly budget options, granted, but if you want super original, and Original, skiing, Japan is the place to head.

Where to stay



The ‘ski in/ski out’ Portetta is located at the foot of the slopes of Courchevel 1650, and is perfect for families.

Grand Hotel Zermatterhof

Grand Hotel Zermatterhof

Dating back to 1879, the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof is one of the grandest of the grand dame hotels in Zermatt, offering 19th century elegance combined with 21st century amenities and polished service.

The Chedi Andermatt

The Chedi Andermatt

Asia meets Alps in the Chedi Andermatt, the first of a slew of new luxury hotels aimed at turning Andermatt from a sleepy (albeit brilliant) resort in to a genuine rival to St Moritz.
