Guided adventure to the eco-village and fondue dinner
The experience starts with an evening snowshoe walk through the mystic snow gums, to encapsulate a sense of remoteness and immerse oneself in the Australian alpine environment. Leaving at sunset from the Wire Plain shelter, the walk will weave its way to a hidden eco-village, where you’ll enjoy a delicious heart warming glass of Glühwein outside by the fire. You will then be invited into the Central tipi with a fireplace, where you will learn the secrets to making a traditional and mouth-watering French fondue, with cheese imported for the occasion from French Alpine farms. Snowshoe hire is included in the experience. In addition, Alpine Nature Experience has partnered with Hoys Ski Hire to provide special deals on snowshoes and equipment hire. The fondue is part of a three course dinner supplied by Zirky’s.
