Top 5 Things To Do In Aviemore During Winter Season

Posted by Hilton Coylumbridge, January, 2016

The thing we like most about Aviemore here at Hilton Coylumbridge is the way in which it really is a genuine year-round playground. Whatever the season, there’s always more on offer around the Scottish Highlands than you’d be able to cram into a month – let alone a well-earned weekend away!

For us, there’s no better time to plan a blissful break than the New Year. The chaos of Christmas has passed, it’s back to work as usual and most UK towns and cities are experiencing rather grim weather. So really – what better time to head to a veritable winter wonderland right here in Scotland to see how we do things during the colder months of the year?

So for those tempted to check out Scotland’s most outstanding activities and attractions this winter, here’s a quick rundown of five unmissable recommendations from our team:

Skiing in Aviemore

First and foremost, we just so happen to be right on the doorstep of quite simply the best skiing and winter sports opportunities in the whole of the United Kingdom. There’s outstanding skiing and snowboarding available within easy reach of our hotel, with world-class facilities and the opportunity to take lessons with leading instructors. What’s more, we can even help reserve and hire your gear in advance!

The Cairngorm Mountain Railway

Another incredible attraction that becomes all the more incredible during the winter is the Cairngorm Mountain Railway. Nothing can prepare you for the spectacular views you’ll take in, both on the way up and when you finally reach the top of the funicular. The wondrous wintery backdrop simply never fails to leave visitors speechless – this also happens to be home to the highest restaurant in the country!

Cairngorm Sleddog Adventure Centre

Take it from us when we say that you absolutely MUST check out the Cairngorm Sleddog Adventure Centre at least once during your stay. First of all, it’s both captivating and enlightening – meeting the dogs and their handlers is just glorious! Secondly, you’ll have the opportunity to embark upon a sleddog ride of your own, which is exhilarating and enjoyable on an unsurpassed level. Last but not least, you won’t find the same opportunity available anywhere else in the UK, so don’t miss out!

The Cairngorm Brewery

Another wonderful Aviemore attraction that is all-the-more cosy in the winter is the Cairngorm Brewery. You’ll learn a thing or two about how wonderful beers are made the traditional way, while at the same time getting the opportunity to sample a selection of the very best of the best. A deeply warming experience in more ways than one!

Cairngorm Reindeer Centre

And finally, Christmas may be over but there’s still no better time to make new friends for life at the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre. This is where you’ll find the only free-roaming reindeer herd in the country – also undoubtedly the very friendliest! Great throughout the year, but somehow infinitely more magical throughout the winter months.

With all these activities and more right on our doorstep, the Hilton Coylumbridge really is the place to stay for a Scottish winter adventure. Check out our fantastic Special Offers .
