With massive, beautiful mountains and luxurious, grand resorts, the Swiss Alps are a popular, year-round travel destination for outdoor enthusiasts from all around the world. Here, you can experience almost everything the outdoors has to offer including skiing, mountain biking and hiking in the most extraordinary surroundings.

Standing 1,250 meters above sea level in the heart of the Swiss Alps, the Whitepod Hotel allows you to enjoy seclusion from the busy atmosphere that often accompanies mountain destination resorts. This eco-friendly, humble hotel has 15 separate snow globe-inspired pods, perfect for both a romantic get-away or families with young children. Each pod offers breathtaking panoramic views of the deep valleys and snow-covered mountains. The hotel’s mission is to provide their guests with the experience of total relaxation, a time to get away from the chaos of everyday life, and reconnect with their senses.

After a long day of skiing on Whitepod’s private slopes, warm up by your own pod fireplace or treat yourself to a soul renewing massage offered in the hotel spa. For those who want to take part in activities other than cross-country or downhill skiing, the hotel also offers a variety of other adventures. Experience a full, aerial overview of the massive mountains and detailed landscapes by taking a paragliding trip over the valley, a dog-sled tour to the top of the mountains, or simply relax on your own private terrace sipping locally produced wine.

Fill your lungs with the crisp mountain air as you indulge in local food and wine provided in Whitepod’s restaurant. If you feel like staying in, take advantage of the convenient pod-service and eat a delicious homemade meal in the privacy of your own pod. During the summer, take complete advantage of the mountain sunshine, order a picnic basket and venture to the top of the mountain; the view of the surroundings and untouched nature are the perfect way to recharge.
