Aviemore is a major holiday resort surrounded by stunning scenery, in the heart of Cairngorms National Park. Initially acclaimed for it’s famous ski slopes, the popular town is now a year-round destination with a wide range of winter and summer activities to choose from. There is a diverse range of pursuits available for tourists and visitors of all ages. Together with a year-round programme of festivals and events, Aviemore is an ideal family getaway destination. Aside from boasting one of Scotland’s top ski areas, it is an excellent base for exploring the Cairngorms National Park, Glenmore, Rothiemurchus Forest and the wider areas Badenoch and Strathspey. Aviemore’s popularity is in part due to its unique setting, but the advent of Railway links and Queen Victoria’s passionate love of the Highlands have also greatly helped to put it on the map.
