Accommodation: Alpine Courses

For Summer 2020, we are asking clients to stay in local hotels or camp sites - see our Covid-19 UPDATE page for details. From 2021 we hope to return to normal, as below...

Our Alpine Mountaineering Courses are based in the traditional alpine village of Evolene in the Arolla valley.

We are based at chalet "Chemin des Etoiles", Evolene where your host will prepare fabulous home cooking and baking. For summer 2020 we also have a newly renovated 3 bedroom apartment "La Clevettaz" in the centre of Evolene, supplemented by the nearby Hotel Hermitage for our busiest weeks.

Our clients really appreciate the friendly, relaxed atmosphere and flexibility that having our own chalets provide.

What our clients say:

"Angus food was lovely, and so great to have the room there to come back to from the huts." Samantha, July 2018

"Judith is a gem. I always looked forward to coming back to the chalet and eating one of her meals, sharing experiences from the day and recipes!" Micah, August 2018

"The arrangements are spot on. Everyone has a great chance to get together and share what we have got up to. Fab mix of people." Keith, 2015
