Welcome to Collett's Mountain Holidays
Thank you for your interest us. We are an independent, ABTA-bonded holiday specialist offering organised and self-guided walking holidays (and more) in five of Europe’s most majestic mountain ranges.
We started 20 years ago in the Italian Dolomites with one chalet, hostewd by me and my wife, Dee. Now we are the UK’s genuine specialist for walking holidays with a unique formula in the Italian Dolomites, the Austrian Alps – Zugspitz Arena or Hohe Tauern National Park, the Picos de Europa and the Pyrenees. Walking is the main attraction, but we also offer flower walks, painting strolls, cycling tours, glacier treks, via ferrata and much more.
Other Collett’s holidays include: hiking the Camino de Santiago or the GR11 in Spain; self-guided hut to hut in the Dolomites and Austria; Spring and Autumn walking breaks in Andalucia – plus our ever-popular skiing and snowshoeing holidays in the Dolomites. For some UK walking, our gorgeous guest house in Wensleydale is the perfect springboard for the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Our painstakingly‐recruited hosts and walkers set us apart from the rest. They don’t wear uniforms or sell excursions. They are simply on hand (1) to make you feel welcome and supported, (2) to organise free, optional and unforgettable walks of all grades and (3) to pass on their local knowledge enthusiastically and constructively.
Here in the UK, most of us have lived and worked in our destinations – myself included. We use our first-hand knowledge to ensure your booking experience is a reassuring pleasure. 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.
Wherever you choose to go, we are sure you will share our appreciation of the sheer magnificence and charm that awaits you on a Collett’s mountain holiday. We look forward to seeing you in the mountains soon. To see how it all works – click here

All staff were excellent however I would like to specifically mention the ones I had most interaction with Caroline, Charlie, George, Mike and Jane. They are all a credit to Collett's. Previous Customer and I really like the model you have as it works really well for someone traveling on their own.
We're just back from a week's skiing around Corvara and I would like to say a big thank you to the Collett's Team for making it our best ski holiday yet! The team at Chalet Angelo were super friendly and helpful, the rooms were lovely and well kept, the food was outstanding and the choice of ski or snow shoe days out were fantastic. (Read more...)
Just well done for a fabulous stay once more. It is really the staff who make such a difference. It is fabulous to see people who have been working for the company for a long time. It makes a real difference, their passion and enthusiasm does the company credit!
I've skied all over the world (for more than 50 years) and so many weeks a year I've lost count. The Ski Safari will forever remain in my memories - wonderful, fantastic week's skiing. Hope I can do it again.
The staff were really friendly and helpful. The hosted ski itineraries are a great way to meet new people. They give you the opportunity and confidence to explore new areas. It's a brilliant idea 😊
We contacted the office a number of times regarding ski lessons. Pete was a pleasure to deal with.
Seb, Amy, John, Tracy, Tom, Chris and all the other members of staff were unfailingly helpful and friendly. John dealt with our family dietary foibles without a qualm and his cooking and Tracy's cakes were delicious every day.

We were staying at the hotel next door to the Chalet Angelo where a large party of friends were staying, It could have felt awkward to have been the only ones from outside the chalet arriving for office hour but whenever we arrived, a member of staff would immediately come over to talk to us and make us feel welcome and included.
