01

After arriving in Switzerland by air, (subject to flight times) transfer to the amazing Lavey-Les-Bains spa with free time to relax in the mineral-rich waters of this naturally heated geothermal spa with outdoor pools surrounded by the mountains. You may also have time to visit the amazing Bex Salt Mines which is located nearby to the spa. An audio-visual installation will take you through centuries of history of the salt mine. Afterwards you will head onto your accommodation to check in and enjoy your evening meal.

02

Today your students will have the chance to explore glacial landforms at the Langgletscher Glacier. With coach and guide, head over to the Langgletscher Glacier to explore the UNESCO World Heritage site forefield of this huge glacier, which lies within the largest valley on the northern side of the Swiss Rhône valley, Lötschental. As an alternative today, you can choose instead to visit the amazing Aletsch Glacier, Europe’s longest glacier, and unquestionably one of the most spectacular in the world.

Return to your accommodation for an evening meal. Why not add in a visit to the local bowling alley in Chateau-d’Oex?
