Mountain holidays aren't just restricted to skiing and snowboarding in winter - Summer bring plenty of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts.
Mountain biking, hiking, lake swimming and watersports are among the opportunities for the energetic. Or if you're after a more sedate break, then there are lakeside beaches to relax on, flora and fauna for nature lovers, or just enjoy the fresh mountain air and the stunning scenery.
Have a break from the coast this summer and head for the mountains...
