No doubt about it winter is here but do not despair we have some out of the box ideas that will help you not only survive, but actually enjoy the colder months of the year.
You may know your way around all the slopes, but have you ever considered spending a night in an igloo? From a family night to a cozy romantic evening for two, you can check the different Iglu Dorf packages and pick whatever fits your needs and budget best. They are available in Engelberg, Zermatt, Gstaad and Davos.
However, if you are not ready to commit to a full night stay but would still like to have a glimpse of this unique experience, there is a much more indulgent option: a Fondueplausch
at the igloo restaurant in Engstligenalp in Adelboden.
If all of that still doesn’t make you channel “your inner eskimo”, then sledging or walking in the snow with the guidance from Siberian husky dogs has got to do the trick. The people at the Husky Lodge in Muotathal (Schwyz) can surely lure you into one of their many activities for children (from 12 years old onwards) and adults.
Now if neither igloos nor dogs are really your thing, then you might want to check the moonlight trekking with torches at the Titlis. The walk itself lasts only an hour and by the end of it you are welcomed with a Swiss apéro and a Raclette dinner.
For those of you who wouldn’t even dream of doing anything “outdoorsy”, we have a little something up our sleeve: dinner aboard a mountain train built in 1911. The ride makes it all the way up to Rigi Kulm, so you will be at about 1,800 meters above sea level. All you have to do to get there though, is give into the belle époque charm and enjoy the ride!
