Dreaming of Frosty Destinations - Switzerland

If you haven’t already come to terms with it, now is about time: summer’s over. Depending on where you live, you may have already been enjoying fall foliage for weeks, or if you’re living on the northern fringes Europe, you’ve already witnessed the first snow fall. But even in our Southern California headquarters, we have pulled out our winter wetsuits and abandoned board shorts for corduroys (and sandals for knee-high boots).

WhitePod Eco-LodgeNo reason to mourn over the cooling temperatures and falling leaves, however, since it’s time to get excited about planning this winter’s snowboarding, skiing, snow-shoeing, alpine destinations. Unfortunately, cold temperatures combined with lines of cars emitting pollutants while waiting to get in and out of ski resorts don’t exactly add up to a sustainable, low-impact vacation. Luckily, there are options. For a truly unique and mesmerizing winter getaway, we suggest a trip to WhitePod Eco-lodge in Les Cerniers, Switzerland.

WhitePod ResortPitched at an altitude of 1400m, the solitude of the Camp offers unprecedented low-impact accommodation. Nine pods serve as individual bedrooms and the main lodge houses the dining room, the lounge and the spa. The pods are naturally isolated from cold and snow, and for added warmth come with wood-burning stoves. Access to the Camp is by foot or ski and like all of our partner lodges, WhitePod follows the principles of sustainable travel and a strong respect for the environment is key to the WhitePod way of thinking. Use of energy and water is monitored regularly and waste is recycled. Products are sourced locally and to reduce carbon emissions, staff live nearby and walk to work. By choosing WhitePod, guests play an active role in the application of these eco principles.

Discover WhitePod and other eco-friendly destinations offering unforgettable scenery and excursions coupled with respect for the surrounding environment at the GBC sustainable travel resource.
