Discover the vibrant ways of a male choir in a chapel in the mountains.... Feel a deep emotion in contact with the music...


Tales and legends A veritable source of information on the region, the storytellers know many anecdotes about the places themselves, stories about the ancestors of the villages and they also know how to make you laugh till you cry or deeply move you with playful, modern or legendary tales.

Sit back and let yourself be enchanted by the candlelight and the mysterious voice of a storyteller... A fire in the corner, a glass of mulled wine in your hand, discover what the mountain villages were like more than a century ago...


Alphorn Uncover the secrets of the Alphorn... from the initiation, to the manufacturing or the demonstration, understand how it works and why its sound is so moving !

In the kitchen of a mountain cafeteria, cut up, prepare and taste... The sweet taste of nettles, a great source of vitamins...


Decoupage and traditions The art of decoupage, originating from China, is a basic popular art in everyday life. In Switzerland, the cut-out paper forms part of a very lively tradition, particularly in the Highlands. We give you the chance to be introduced to this art.

Use your imagination, with scissors, by cutting out the paper whilst making shapes appear by removing what you don't need... Take your greetings cards and small pictures away as souvenirs, works of your creation...


Tastings, tastes and flavours We give you the chance to taste wines, beers, cheeses, syrups and artisanal ice creams. For original tastings, we suggest wines and chocolates where the chocolates have been specially produced by a chocolate maker to accompany the 9 grape varieties that you taste.

Enjoy the sunshine illuminating the footprints of the white hare or the snow partridge... Enjoy a delicious regional picnic against an old larch barn...


Ski mountaineering Ski touring allows you to escape the slopes and generally rhymes with a beautiful off-piste descent in the company of a mountain guide. The equipment is slightly different from that for downhill skiing. You need skis with a hiking binding, seal skins and possibly knives. Don't worry, everything is provided for you from the equipment to the safety equipment (AVD, shovel, probe).

Slip off the beaten track with a mountain guide towards the hidden face of the mountain... Initiate yourself to hiking without knowing how to ski off-piste by letting yourself be guided on an itinerary at your technical level…


Off-piste skiing O-piste skiing can be done at first on the slopes with a ski instructor or if you want to go further into the mountains a mountain guide will accompany you.

Learn off-piste skiing in the small resorts with great off-piste skiing opportunities... Enjoy the powdery snow effortlessly or almost effortlessly in areas only known to local guides...
