The view at Whitepod in Switzerland


Les Cerniers

Whitepod in Switzerland

For the ultimate outdoor retreat, the camp at Whitepod delivers an exclusive Swiss Alps experience. Situated at an altitude of 1,400 meters, it consists of just fifteen pods designed to resemble igloos. These pods are in fact dome-shaped tents, pitched on raised wooden platforms surrounding a refurbished alpine chalet. Each well-insulated lodging is heated by a wood-burning stove and has its own private front terrace with beautiful views of the valley, and the chalet features a Finnish sauna, Japanese bath and communal area, where guests gather for breakfast and evening drinks around the fireplace. Along with majestic views of the snow-covered mountains, the camp offers ski lessons, guided snowshoe tours, dog sledding and massages at Chalet Les Cerniers, the camp's starting point (a fifteen-minute walk from the pods), which also houses a full restaurant.
