Providing customers with wonderful winter getaways since 2011

Who We Are


Glacius Travel is a ski travel specialist which acts as both a tour operator and also
a travel agent, providing customers with a mix of handpicked packages and
tailored itineraries for groups, corporates, families and solo travellers worldwide.
We stick to what we know – winter breaks – and we do it well.

In addition to the personal service we provide, we guarantee customers 100% financial protection.

Our Values


In the digital age, it is rare for
companies to be accountable. With so
many moving parts, great expense, and
precious holiday time, booking your
holiday with a company which is
willing to be held accountable is a must.


Everything we do at Glacius is
performed with the highest level of
care we can possible give. This is why
leading businesses and their staff,
sharing the same values as Glacius,
come back year after year. Our clients
refer to this approach as “refreshing”.


Weather, work, and life in general can
be unpredictable, and events arise which sometimes impact your ski trips.
We at Glacius are prepared to flex where other companies will not. Like every company, we have ts and cs with hard lines, but they really are a last resort as we
prefer to find customer friendly solutions.
