Activities at Our Chalet

At Our Chalet we are happy to welcome everybody who wishes to visit the Centre, enjoy the beautiful surroundings, and soak up over 90 years of history of this very special place. If you would like to visit for a day tour or are staying overnight outside of one of our events and would like to book programme activities you will find all the relevant information here.


Individual groups are welcome to stay at Our Chalet and arrange tailor-made programmes based on the season. Note: in Summer (June – August) we are not able to offer any programme activities outside of our summer event programmes.

We warmly welcome groups, whether Guides and Scout or not, who would like to create a customised programme for their stay, from a few days to a few weeks. For planning and advice contact our programme team.

Our Chalet has lots to offer in all seasons, whether you wish to come alone, as a family, or as part of a group. For bespoke programme we require a minimum of 10 participants. If you have fewer than this in your group, we are happy to welcome you on to one of our events, for an independent stay without programme activities, or for a self-guided tour.

Twilight Hike

For overnight guests Our Chalet staff can lead a twilight hike starting after dinner. The hike will last 1-1.5 hours and cover easy to moderate terrain. In winter, we can lead snowshoe hikes. Hikes are particularly special around the full moon when the mountains are lit by the moon and we can hike without torches.

Must be booked in advance, minimum 10 participants.


We can offer a range of indoor evening programmes for overnight guests. Swiss Night, Goose Game, International Night, and Games Night are all popular choices.

Must be booked in advance, minimum 10 participants.


For overnight guests in any season we can run a traditional Guide/Scout campfire. Note: we do not offer any food at our campfire. Occasionally we may be able to run a campfire for day visitors who wish to return in the evening.

Must be booked in advance, minimum 10 participants.
