Looking for a unique lodging experience worth planning your whole trip around? Mountain hotels are a versatile option for travelers in every season, whether you’re a skier, hiker, adventure-seeker, or just looking to unwind with a view.

Here are seven incredible hotels nestled among the world’s most breathtaking mountain ranges, and the amenities and features that make them worth visiting.

Grand Hotel des Alpes: Mont Blanc, France

The highest mountain in the French Alps, Mont Blanc sits at the intersection of France, Switzerland, and Italy, and is a bucket list trip in itself. Add in a historic grand hotel with a luxurious spa just steps from the mountain’s cable cars, and it’s a good idea year-round.

The Grand Hotel des Alpes offers the best hotel value in the French Alps according to TripAdvisor, and features river and mountain views of the highest point of the Alps from Chamonix’s busy town center. The historic property dates back to 1840 and has held on to some of its original touches, but the ultra-modern spa is anything but rustic.

Skylodge Adventure Suites: Sacred Valley, Peru

Want to sleep precariously on the edge of one of the world’s most famous mountain ranges?  Skylodge Adventure Suites are glass pods perched high on the walls of Peru’s Sacred Valley with breathtaking views of the Andes. And if the reinforced lodging doesn’t make you nervous enough, just getting to your suite requires a long, difficult climb along the side of the cliffs. Once you adjust to staying on the edge, however, the suites offer some pretty high-end amenities, like delicious food, a cozy bed, and stargazing that’s hard to beat.
