7 reasons why our Yoga and Hiking hostel makes for an ideal Summer holiday...
It may sound cheesy, but the main aim behind our Hiking Hostel project, aside from hiking of course, is to bring people together from all backgrounds, cultures and walks of life.
By doing so, we hope to create a fun and easygoing international atmosphere.
2. Low Price, High Quality
At €500 a week including half board accommodation, Everyday Yoga lessons and shuttle service to trailheads, we're confident that we're offering one of the cheapest package prices you'll find anywhere in Switzerland, or Europe for that matter.
However, a low price doesn't equate to poor quality as we offer good food, experienced trail knowledge for the area, a professional yoga instructor and a fun time!
3. Yoga lessons
Every morning after en healthy breakfast we will start our yoga lessons outside in the nature if weather permits.
The wonderful nature environment and our professional instructors from Mind and body yoga will make sure you feel relaxed after the lesson!
4. Hiking Trails
Beginner, expert or somewhere in between?
Again, no problem!
There are over 500KM of marked trails in the Valais and most are within a hour drive to the start off the trail. We will bring you to a trail for your level and interest. Making sure you will have the best time exploring the Swiss Alps.
Included in the price are 2 meals a day cooked by our expert and fun-loving chefs!
This includes a full breakfast buffet, including cereals, bread, yogurt, eggs and bacon, plus delicious evening meals that take inspiration from both Swiss and international cuisine.
And of course no trip to Switzerland would be complete without Raclette and Fondue!
You're free to use the kitchen in the afternoon, however the restaurant on our local towns are very reasonably priced by Swiss standards!
6. Relaxation after the hikes
Enjoying the mountain views with a glass of wine or an ice cold beer after a fun day's hiking can be almost as rewarding as hiking itself!
If you don't fancy splashing out on Swiss bar prices, our chalet has a spacious garden and plenty of chairs, so grab a carryout from the supermarket and feel right at home!
7. Socialising and Nightlife
Our hostel may a little out of the way with regards to the region's nightlife, however with a large common room, chilling area and up to 40 guests plus our young staff, we can keep the party going every night.
And what's better? It's cheap as you can bring your own alcohol!
Though we also have a very reasonably priced bar for those in need!
What are Tibetan singing bowls?
Meditation isn't about becoming a different person, a new person, or even a better person. It's about training your awareness and achieving a healthy sense of perspective. You're trying to make peace with your thoughts as they come. You're learning how to achieve mindfulness?
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the ability to be present, to rest in the here and now, fully engaged with whatever we're doing in the moment.
How Tibetian bowls can help you?
Singing bowls produce sounds that invoke a deep state of relaxation which naturally assists one in entering into meditation, the ultimate goal being enlightenment. They are a quintessential aid to meditation.
In addition to their traditional usage for meditation, Tibetan singing bowls are used for deep relaxation, stress reduction, holistic healing, Reiki, chakra balancing, and World music. Many people find that the rich blend of harmonic overtones that the bells produce have a direct effect upon their chakras.
