A Typical Day in the Alps

Sunlight filters into the room through mountain peaks to waken hikers to the quiet and inspiration that a morning meditation creates for the day ahead. A bountiful breakfast buffet of local fresh fruits, eggs, breads, museli, and cheeses awaits to nourish and support hikers as we put boots to trail at 8:30am for the challenging trek through alpine forests and pasturelands. Climbing in elevation to our mountain hut for lunch, we are rewarded for our hard work by the company of majestic snow covered peaks, a beer, and local cheeses- meats and breads. The afternoon hike descends through the beauty of fresh mountain air, the sound of cowbells and fields of wildflowers to our beautiful mountain village. A most welcome afternoon yoga stretch opens and soothes tired feet and legs as we arrive at our cozy hotel. Showers, saunas and steam, a saunter into the village to explore the shops, and postcard writing follow before a cocktail and our delicious 4-5 course meal around 7pm. Time for a glimpse at the dark starry night skies, then off to our cozy beds as we tuck ourselves in with warm down pillows and duvets surrounded by the comforting presence of the mountains and the quiet night air.

 

Read what people are saying:

"If you are looking for a challenging indulgence  - this week in the Alps is it.  For the person who enjoys hiking, yoga and mindfulness, this is the triple treat.  You can't find a more special hiking environment or destination, paired with Diana's skill and leadership both on the trails and in the pre-post yoga sessions.  You will push yourself on the trail and be pampered and indulge when you put your feet up at night.  The views on the trail are matched only by those out your hotel windows where you can reflect on what you traversed or scaled earlier in the day (or will the next morning)."
