Alpine Nature Experience’s igloos are furnished with a proper bed, -8° sleeping bags and fur blankets. Wake up to the smell of fresh coffee and a cooked breakfast, partnering with SnowStuffPark, you'll finish the experience with a scenic snowmobile tour.

A UNIQUE ADVENTURE

Enjoy this European-inspired adventure among our beautiful snow gums at sunset, enjoying a gourmet experience in our unique eco-village. Everything is carried in and out by person power to reduce our impact on the fragile alpine environment. We are completely off the grid.

SNOWSHOE TO FONDUE

Leaving at sunset from the Wire Plain shelter, you'll snowshoe with the group to a hidden eco-village, where you’ll enjoy a delicious heart warming glass of Glühwein by the fire. You will then be invited into the central tipi, where you will learn the secret to making a traditional French fondue, with cheese imported for the occasion from French Alpine farms. 

IGLOO TO SKIDOO

Extend your Showshoe to Fondue adventure by staying overnight in one of our snow domes, which are sustainably built with one idea in mind: simplicity is a luxury. Each snow dome contains a warm wood-fire heater, hand washing facilities and towels, comfortable bedding (real mattress, bed linen, pillow, faux fur blankets, fleece liner and -10°c sleeping bag), and solar powered battery and USB port to recharge phones. To top it all off, you will have the added benefit of a scenic skidoo tour in the morning.
