    photo by roblisameehan

    The classic holiday destination for summer is usually the beach, but for some holiday-makers, lounging on the sand and taking the occasional dip in the sea is not exactly what they want to do for weeks on end. Mountain resorts have their own charm, and not only in winter – so don’t discount them because of the lack of snow in summer!

    In addition to skiing or snowboarding, there are tons of things to do at a mountain resort even in summer, and they are a perfect destination for those who are not too keen on beaches, for example. So here are the top 5 summer mountain resorts that you can visit.

    Innsbruck, Austria

    Innsbruck is very well known for its winter and alpine sports, so in winter it is unquestionably a great holiday destination. However, in summer Innsbruck doesn’t lose any of its charm. The city itself is filled with historical and cultural attractions, and they are all made even better by the backdrop of impressive mountains.There are lots of hiking trails around Innsbruck, especially in Nordpark, and there are some very adventurous mountain biking trails as well.

    Ludlow, Vermont

    The picturesque village of Ludlow in southern Vermont is located at the base of Okemo Mountain, and it’s a place where there’s always something to do in every season.

    Okemo Mountain has great hiking and walking trails for everyone, even the most experienced hikers, and if you like fishing, there are a couple of lakes in the area too. Don’t miss the Buttermilk Falls, a very nice place for swimming and a bit of a local secret.

    Hautes-Alpes, France

    The department of Haute-Alpes in France is part of the most popular tourist region of the country, the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. If the French Riviera doesn’t appeal to you all that much, you can head to the mountains in Hautes-Alpes, which has enough mountains and wild ranges to please any mountain-lover, and plenty of picturesque villages to stay in.

    Durango, Colorado

    Durango is located in the Rocky Mountains, and while it is famous mostly for its historic narrow-gauge railway, it has much more than that to offer.

    You can marvel at the peaks of the Rockies, visit the Mesa Verde National Park Cliff Dwellings, explore the scenic San Juan National Forest or visit the historic attractions of the town.

    Sun Peaks, Canada

    Sun Peaks is a resort town that has activities all year-round, and in the summer it transforms into a haven for hikers and mountain bikers. There are also several very good golf courses, but if you want something more adventurous than that, you can try canoeing and kayaking in one of the numerous lakes and rivers around the town.
