Because great holidays don’t have to cost the Earth…Whitepod

By Hollie Wicks

We know life can be tough. Sometimes all you want to do is pack up your things and take a long vacation. Well, what’s stopping you? We’ve hunted high and low for the crème de la crème of eco-friendly hotels across the globe…

2013 is the year for quirky eco-friendly holidays, so this week we are taking you away on the ultimate retreat…

White Pod is situated in the village of Les Cerniers, which is at the foot of the Dents-du-Midi mountain range (the beginning of the Swiss Alps).

The resort offers a unique and memorable experience in a stunning mountainous environment. There are just 15 spacious and comfortable pods to choose from, which are based in a high mountain pasture. The area is a perfect site for this unique ecological model designed to be in total harmony with the surrounding environment. Especially as it is hidden away from urban disturbances too.

There are various different activities to try, whether you are looking for team challenges or an individual adventure, Whitepod has it covered. All activities are under the supervision of the camp manager and mountain experts. These activities range from dog sledging, snow racket excursions and a snow-trekking excursion. But if they don’t tickle your fancy, you can ski till your heart’s content. As the ski slopes are there just for you and the other guests unlike any other area in Switzerland.

If you’re still undecided take a look at the photos below…

/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
