SWITZERLAND ALPINE ADVENTURE
One Yoga Global strives to co-create unique experiences to the world’s most spectacular destinations. The Swiss Alps has been a dream for many years, and we are thrilled to now have a specially curated experience to offer you!
Our Swiss adventure takes us off the big tourism beaten path to Pontresina, an enchanting village in the upper Engadin valley of the High Alps. Surrounded by the impressive Bernina-Massif, but sheltered from the wind and elements, Pontresina has a rich history & charm tucked into a valley of pristine nature, glacier trails, mountain lakes and aromatic alpine meadows.
Our partners for these retreats are our longtime friends Andreas and Ulrica, who split their time with their family between Northern Iceland and Pontresina. They both have a deep connection to these lands – uniquely charged power places on the planet with unparalleled elemental energies and deep tranquility.
Less than 4 miles from St Moritz, and with a population of less than 3000, Pontresina is the perfect backdrop for our yoga adventure and nature retreat. Our week’s itinerary will rival that of our Iceland itinerary with guided excursions to Muottas Murgal (one of the most beautiful vantage points above the lakes) and Divolezza where we’ll take a cable car to the breathtaking glacier viewpoints. Hiking through the Alpine trials and meadows is a spectacular life changing experience. We’ll take the Unesco railway to the Italian speaking town of Posciavo where we’ll enjoy this picturescque village of medieval acchitecture. We’ll spend another day venturing to the enchanting village of Sils, and take a boat on the magical lake to Isola. In between, we have two “open days” to enjoy the spa overlooking the valley, go mountain biking on world famous Alpine trails (electric bikes are available as well!) , or take a horse drawn carriage through the Val Roseg Valley.
Accommodations have been arranged at the centrally located and modern Allegra Hotel, which is the only hotel in Pontresina with direct (and included) access to the Bellavita Spa complex complete with indoor and outdoor pools, relaxation rooom, sauna, steam and more.
In addition to the guided excursions above, all breakfasts, lunches and 4 special dinners are included. Travel for most will be via Zurich and then by train to Pontresina.
