Summer brings its own magic. Discover the secrets of bees, hike through flower-flecked meadows and inhale the fresh scent of sun-kissed pine needles.
At any time of year, wellness is a key component of your stay at The Alpina Gstaad. Unwind at a Tibetan Healing Retreat or sign up for a Holistic Anti-Aging Programme or Yoga Detox.
The mountains are calling. Are you listening?
