Our Destinations

We have just returned from a week's cross country skiing in the Dolomites and are delighted with the service we received from Summit and Blue. Stand out! Richard provided a superb personal and friendly service throughout.

I cannot recommend them enough and we are already thinking about our next Summit and Blue holiday!
