Ski down pristine slopes with a belly full of traditional Alpine food, and get the chance to paraglide, sled, and freestyle!
The Alps slice through the skies and cast an influence over all of Europe. They’re also the best place to rave into the night while you look at gorgeous mountainous sights. On this spring trip, we take you from the urban thralls of London into the thrills of the French Alps. Party while wearing a bobbled hat, ski down pristine slopes with a belly full of traditional Alpine food, and get the chance to paraglide, sled, and freestyle!
Your adventure begins in the bustling English capital of London. Meet with your fellow passengers and fantastic Busabout guide to learn about the exciting adventure ahead before boarding our coach and setting a southerly course for France. Relax and catch some zzz’s as we make our way across the channel and through the rolling French countryside to our spectacular Alpine destination, the resort of Alpe D’Huez.
We arrive at the mountain pasture of Alpe D’Huez and its world-class ski resort. Get checked in to your centrally located accommodation and prepare for the first night of an epic week-long Alpine adventure. Tomorrow is your first chance to hit the slopes so you may want to rest up for the madness to come, or, if you’re feeling spry, begin the journey by grabbing a drink and partying the night away absorbed in the vibrant atmosphere of the world-class apres-ski.
The day has arrived, so get your gear and head out to the slopes for a fun filled week of winter sports and a number of competitions. Alpe D’Huez offers something for every level of expertise so experts as well as beginners will find opportunities to test their mettle against the mountain. Speak to your guide should you require anything from advice to information on ski lessons. Spend your nights enjoying the entertainment of the apres-ski, so grab a drink in one of the chalet style mountain bars and dance the nights away. Spend the rest of the week living the dream and see off the winter season with a bang!
The time has come. It’s our final day in the sun soaked slopes of Alpe D’Huez. Take in the views and breathe in the fresh Alpine air as you enjoy your last day on the slopes with your new Busabout family. We climb aboard our trusty coach this evening and begin our lengthy journey north, leaving the winter wonderland of Alpe D’Huez as we make our way to London. Relax on board and share your ski resort stories before retiring to rest at ease safe in the hands of our fantastic Busabout driver as we cover ground during the night toward the English Channel.
We arrive back in London at 4pm where our tour comes to an end. We hope to see you again!

Award winning Busabout offers a unique way to travel where you can enjoy the flexibility to go as you please around Europe, but with all of the expertise of a tour guide as you go from place to place. They started in 1998 when they first linked up the best cities and destinations in Europe with a commitment to the independent traveller to make their time, cash and experiences go further. By being the alternative choice they have remained dedicated to their freestyle form of travel and their unique hop-on hop-off flexible coach network.
And if you’re travelling solo, it’s so easy to meet like minded independent travellers and you’ll soon have heaps of new friends on the road. Also with Busabout’s Trip Mates and Community you can even get in touch before you start, so heaps more fun than travelling on trains and buses by yourself.
They live to travel and as travellers themselves they know what makes an unforgettable trip. Sometimes they show you around, other times you are free to explore, either way, they hope to give you choice and plenty of local knowledge. This passion to explore the world (without costing the Earth) has also developed over the years into their innovative Adventures, be it island hopping in Greece and Croatia, trekking through Eastern Europe, exploring a sea cave on the island of Capri, Italy, or discovering the ancient cultures of Egypt and Morocco.
Although they do attract the 18-35 age range, they have no upper age limits on their tours, so be as young as you feel and join them on a travel experience of a lifetime!
