Experience the Mayrhofen Active Discovery, from £505 per person which includes: a week’s stay at the Hotel Obermair on a B&B basis, two of the following activities – river rafting, family canyoning or a high ropes course – an excursion to the Zillergrund Dam and an Austrian skittles night to experience some local traditions.

With the launch of their 2014 preview programme comes the announcement that they will no longer have beach holidays on sale; instead, Crystal will be focusing on their lakes and mountain resorts to provide customers with a greater holiday experience.
Due to success from previous years, Crystal continues to provide a walking escort service throughout 10 resorts in Austria, Italy and Slovenia at least twice a week. They know the walking area well and offer anything from gentle walks to challenging hikes as well as tips on the best routes and recommended places to fine authentic hidden gems.

Prices start at £339 for seven nights’ self-catering accommodation at the three-star Doria Apartments in Garda on Lake Garda, Italy. Alternatively, customers can experience Italy through the Lake Garda Discovery package or the Classic Italian Discovery package whilst staying at the Hotel Continental located in Torbole.

Crystal Summer, formally known as Crystal Lakes & Mountains, is a part of TUI Travel PLC, the largest holiday company in Europe. The Discovery packages available from Crystal include flights, transfers, accommodation, excursions and entertainment which must be booked by 30 April 2014.
