Tom Collett Welcomes You
to a genuine mountain specialist that prides itself on its unique holiday formula,
an extensive knowledge of its destinations and the human touch
We are an independent, ABTA-bonded holiday specialist offering summer and winter holidays in Europe’s most majestic mountains. So what sets us apart from the rest?
Our unique and flexible formula for summer walking holidays.
You choose whether to self-guide or join free, daily organised walks – or do a mix of both.
You choose your dates of arrival and departure, staying with us for as long as you wish.
You choose to stay half-board in a delightful hotel or chalet – or to self-cater.
You choose whether to walk at an easier moderate level or on harder high level treks…
…or, depending on your destination, on our flower walks, painting strolls or cycling tours.
Our extensive local knowledge – we will use this to ensure you can create a succession of memorable days out, whether you join walks organised by us or opt to self guide. Similarly, if you fancy a day off walking, we can advise you on locally supplied alpine activities, places of interest, bike rides etc. Our impressive Ideas & Information Files feature numerous walks of all grades, from gentle strolls through wildflower-strewn pastures to dramatic high trails – each itinerary comes with a Route Card, which guests can borrow on a daily basis. Lazy days are fine too and sometimes you might simply choose to relax in the splendour of our mountain retreats.
The human touch – this will be present from your initial enquiry through to the end of a memorable stay. In the mountains, our painstakingly-recruited hosts and walkers will make you feel welcome, ‘at home’ – and well-informed. They don’t wear uniforms or sell excursions. Careful not to interfere, they will pass on their knowledge enthusiastically so you can plan wonderful days out – whatever your interests or level of fitness. Meanwhile, our small team here in the UK is comprised of past-hosts, most of whom have lived and worked in our destinations – myself included – so, with our first-hand experience, we can help you choose just the right accommodation in just the right destination.
The most common request from the guests who stay with us year after year is to keep it small and personal. Their wish is our command. We hope to see you in the mountains soon.

Ski Safari was great - a very different way to experience the Dolomites. Our guides and host were all very welcoming, enthusiastic and fun.
The group was split into 2 groups of 7 which worked very well. The accommodation varied from basic bunk rooms to very comfortable en suite bedrooms. We knew this was going to be the arrangement (Read more...)
I stayed in the Hotel Panorama so obviously different experience had I stayed in the Chalet Angelo (next door). The Panorama is quite exceptional and the quality of the food, the facilities (spa plus swimming pool) were amazing. Obviously more expensive but this hotel would be fabulous wherever it was situated.
I used the office h (Read more...)

The staff were very welcoming. It was nice it It was nice to see Chris who we had met in Andalucia last year. The breakfast at Haus Valentin was particularly good for me.

Another wonderful holiday spent at Chalet Angelo.
Excellent food cooked by Steve and Becky.
Entertaining quiz night.
Stunning photography from Rushy.
Katie runs a tight ship , always with a smile .
Wouldn't even consider going anywhere else.
Though the snow may have been scarce, the pistes were well groomed and we skied our socks off every day. Toured a new part of the Dolomites for me with excellent guides and food to die for..!
This is my second safari and I can only thanks Colletts for ther professionalism and skill in making both weeks adventures to remember...
In our experience, Collett's staff are the factor that places their holidays in a class of their own. Cam, Giles and Adam are a credit to your company - they were at all times exceptionally friendly, kind, considerate and helpful as well as being totally professional. Furthermore, they were great fun to ski with and made sure that ev (Read more...)
This is the third ski holiday I have been with Collett's in Corvara and they do not disappoint. The accommodation is good and the food both ample and delicious. What makes the whole experience so enjoyable is the attitude of the chalet staff, being able to interact with them both in the chalet and in particular the ski hosting, which (Read more...)
