We know life can be tough. Sometimes all you want to do is pack up your things and take a long vacation. Well, what’s stopping you? We’ve hunted high and low for the crème de la crème of eco-friendly hotels across the globe…

Vigilius Mountain Resort
This eco-friendly resort hotel is a step above the hustle and bustle of everyday life (1500m above in the mountains to be precise!) At the Vigilius Mountain Resort you can hide away from stress and find inner peace in a peaceful spot.

This resort can only be reached by cable car, which creates a car free environment and gives you breathtaking views of the scenery too.  The design of the hotel is well thought out too as the designers used building materials from renewable resources. earning them an award for the Best Designed Ecological Hotel.

The hotel is filled with 35 unique rooms and six special suites – all of these offering an extra space to relax and enjoy the tranquillity. Try to book a room on the second floor rooms for beautiful sights of the South Tyrolean Mountains.

There are plenty of things to do up in the mountains too. Pamper yourself silly in the Vigilius mountain spa or join the Move & Explore program with a list of activities available such as mountain biking, snow shoeing, hiking and archery. If that isn’t enough for you adrenalin junkies, you can even book a paragliding session.

There’s even an extra special Christmas promotion with a day at the local Christmas market for hot mulled wine, gingerbread, sweets and a spot of shopping.

Here are a few photos help you picture the adventure…

/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
